Habits that give me the best return on my time; "minimum effective dose" for benefits from running.
Like many people, I like to use this time of year to step back and reflect on the prior season. There is always some degree of good and bad, but for the most part 2019 was a great year and I was able to find clarity in my thinking and commitment to my goals to a higher degree than years past. Upon further thought, these positive changes were the result of committing to small, regular habits that helped guide me towards my goals. In many ways, committing to these habits required “giving up” some other habit, but a better way to think of it would be that I simply “replaced this less effective habit with a more productive one.” Read more about the habits that gave me the best return on my time here.
