If I take on a new idea or habit, I do so because it has the potential to benefit my life. New ideas shape the future Me. Same goes for habits. Over time my ideas change, improve, and expand, and my current habits get replaced by new ones that continue to help me grow. Our readiness to jilt ideas or habits means we’re willing to grow—we’re willing to constantly pursue a better version of ourselves.
I have been thinking about this post a lot again. Not because I am ready to quit something, but more that I am focused on what I do want to do.
This makes me less likely the need to quit anything and happier in the process. It is great to get to this stage, but I like to remain wary of taking on new things, or knowing when to slim down my spread of focus.
