Question: What could you do less of?


January 16, 2014

Sometimes we hang onto habits because they’re habits, not because they help us all that much. What’s one habit that could use a downsizing? In return for giving it the slip, you’ll get time and energy, both of them priceless.

Unstuck’s “Shake Up Your Routine” tool can help you pinpoint the habit to toss. If you’re on your iPad, click to go directly to the tool (this won’t work if you’re using Unstuck on the web). Or download the free Unstuck iPad app here.
