Getting out of the habit takes zero effort.
Getting in the habit takes work.
Hard, effortful work.
But the rewards are so much better.
The sense of accomplishment hard work brings...
The knowing that you've worked hard for something...
It makes attaining that thing so much sweeter.
But what do you do when you've created the habit, put in the effort, and attained the gold pot at the end of the rainbow?
You keep working hard.
You keep putting in the effort.
It took the habit you created to attain it.
It will take the habit to maintain it.
What's the habit you created that you're most proud of?
