the habits of our lives

The first step is learning how to do it. […] But step two is turning it into a habit.’*

This is how it is with the thing we most want to do.

It can take us a long time to identify the art or artisanship we want to contribute into the world.  The next thing we must do is to embody it, to make it into the many habits that are as special friends to us and that help us get up in the morning with a larger anticipation, move into the space we need to be in, and are channels for our unique energy in yet another day.

Without habits, personal energy leaks.
