Not all habits are created equal

Some habits will have a disproportionately positive (or negative) impact than others.

If you do a high-impact habit consistently for years then it will bring about a massive change in your life.

Here are 4 high-impact routines that have created a disproportionately positive impact on my life over the years:

  • I have automated my savings, giving, and investing so that I never have to think about when or how much I should be putting into those accounts. It happens on autopilot and I reap the benefits.
  • My wife and I have a date night every week (even if it is merely at home on the back porch).
  • I set aside at least one hour every work day for undistracted time to do focused, deep work.
  • Every day I do at least a 15-minute workout.

Put another way, the whole ****point in having a routine is to make your life better. And, if you’re going to have a routine, you might as well have one that is high-impact.
