I’ve learned a valuable lesson. And that lesson is “don’t test on your laurels”. Here’s what I mean.
One of my daily goals is to walk on each of my breaks at work. It’s a way to get up and stretch my legs, and it helps me make my daily walking goal. And I’d been really good about it. So good, in fact, that I took it off my daily checklist on Habitica. “I’ve done a great job of this,” I told myself. “I surely don’t need to keep ticking it off my daily goal list. I’ve got this.”
You can probably see where this is going, can’t you?
Yeah. I just realized that I’ve hit that goal perhaps five times since I took it off my checklist last month. Not good.
So, effective tomorrow, it’s back on the checklist. Time to get back to work! (And time to remember that these things are in my daily checklist for a reason…)
