It Doesn’t Need To Be So Hard

I like my eggs soft-boiled.   I actually dislike hard-boiled eggs a lot.  What does this mean for my morning routine?  For someone who is easily distracted (one husband, two kids, five dogs) or juggling a few extra responsibilities in the morning (one husband, two kids, five dogs), making the perfect egg could be “just one more thing to do”. Here’s the thing.  That perfectly soft-boiled egg makes me happy for a couple of reasons.  I make one for my daughter and it means she gets protein prior to school and I get protein prior to the other distractions that will follow their departure to school.  It’s a check off my  “Do The Right Thing” list.

What’s the point of this glimpse into my morning?  Do you have something that makes you happy enough to figure out a way to incorporate it into your daily life. Instead of allowing the negative roadblock to stop you from feeling and being your best, look for a way.  Egg solution…set a timer every time!  Get a system.  I am more convinced than ever that systems are the key to achieving your goals and happiness in general.  Give your kids a system.  Eat dinner, clear their plate, pack their own lunch for the next day. Boom!  Easier mornings.

“A goal is a specific objective that you either achieve or don’t sometime in the future. A system is something you do on a regular basis that increases your odds of happiness in the long run. If you do something every day, its a system. If you’re waiting to achieve it someday in the future, it’s a goal.” Scott Adams
