Develop Good Habits – by S.J. Scott

DevelopGoodHabitsSJScottI recently saw a Kindle book about Evernote being mentioned by Lynn Terry, and being a big Evernote fan I went to Amazon to check it out.

That lead me to the Author Page of S.J. Scott – an author with several books (paperback, Kindle, Audible Audio and Audio CD) about habits and productivity.

Plenty of Kindle authors “hide” behind pseudonyms and pen names, but the picture looked legit, so I went searching to see what else he had been up to.

And that’s when I came across his Develop Good Habits website.

And I quite like the site.

  • Lots of productivity and habit blog posts.
  • A page with 203 different good habits neatly organized into 7+1 categories.
  • A page with a good starting point for doing 30 Day Habit Changes – including Steve’s own challenges from January 2013 to December 2013 (January 2014 is hinted at as being about Evernote, but no link to a live blogpost at this time)

It’s Never About Not Working Out

I came across this interesting little article over at en*theos by Jessica Corbin called “It’s Never About Not Working Out

It talks about thinking of energy in terms of capital – when you’re short on cash you preserve and save it – when you have an abundance of money you invest.

It makes perfect sense to push yourself really hard on days where you have a surplus of energy – run a bit faster, do a few more laps, sets, reps etc. When you have the additional energy invest it in your body.

At the same time there will be days when you are not bursting with energy – it’s on those days that you preserve your energy

Could be because of a good hard workout the previous day, could be the day after a race or other event when you give it your all – or you could be coming down with something.

But as Jessica concludes – “it’s never about not working out” – you still move about, go for a walk, do some light exercise – but without draining your last bit of energy

I have no idea what happened between this post and the previous post, but it seems to be working now.

I didn’t change anything, I simply woke up and then it worked.
