Habits > Goals

Last year, I set a goal of losing one pound per week. That’s 52 pounds.

I failed miserably, but I learned some valuable lessons in the process. Losing weight is a simple thing—burn more calories than you consume—but that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

Last year I set a goal. And I ended the year within 10lbs of where I started.

This year, I’m working on habits.

Habits like going for a run at least once a week, going for a family hike on the weekends, and eating to fuel my body, not to comfort, entertain, or reward my inner fatty.

And whattaya know. I’m averaging about 1.5lbs lost per week so far this year.

Habits > Goals

Calling their bluff

Three strikes. You’re out.

The first time you tell me you were promised something I know—without a doubt—my sales rep would never—ever—promise, I’m going to try and make it happen for you. Because we care about exceeding expectations.

The second time you tell me you were promised something I know—without a doubt—my sales rep would never—ever—promise, I’m going to drop everything and give you the option to bail out of your annual contract in the first month. Because if it’s a deal breaker, let’s break the deal and get back to work.

But if you don’t take the walk—if you decide it wasn’t a deal breaker after all—we’re gonna do some cool shit.

【=◈◡◈=】: You can tell when someone cares more

Their work simply pulls you in and holds your attention.

Case in point: This nearly two hour edit of Porter Robinson’s “Worlds” set.

[ embedded video: Porter Robinson – Worlds: The Movie 【FANMADE】]

Created entirely out of fan footage shot at live shows around the world, Huntroxic Music seemlessly edited together footage shot by nearly 100 other people into a single, hour-and-forty-minutes-long music video.

And it’s incredible.

We’ll see creation come undone
These bones that bound us will be gone
We’ll stir our spirits ’till we’re one
Then soft as shadows we’ll become

I stumbled back upon this one the other night and sat there for over 30 minutes watching.

Just goes to show, when you care more, you dive deeper, and you do better.

PS: Thanks, Taylor!
