In a talk to Columbia Business School, Warren Buffet said, “The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken, and we then function in our dysfunction.”

Apparently, he sets a time at the end of every day to walk, and reflect on the day’s activities. He wants to learn from his day, and catch the silken caress of a bad habit before the caress turns to a heavy chain.

Schedule 10 minutes a day for the next week and reflect on your day. Even better, journal a few notes as you do it.

Notice what changes over the week.

Most people are surprised at what they discover.

What will you discover?

Here are some tools for self-coaching, and an interesting way to solve a problem.

My best wishes, Paul
