Give Yourself the Gift of Habit in 66 Days

Jay Papasan, co-author of The ONE Thing, says habits are among the best gifts you can give yourself. That’s why he’s already on day 23 of his 66-Day Challenge. Watch this video to find out what habit Jay’s currently tackling, and read below to see what “gifts” matter most in his life.

FOR MY SPIRITUAL LIFE …

“My wife Wendy and I wanted to establish a mentality of gratitude in our two kids. We already eat dinner as a family every night, and now we go around the dinner table and each of us shares what we are thankful for.”

FOR MY PHYSICAL HEALTH …

“We have a trainer come to our house three times a week at 5:30 in the morning. There were a lot of dominoes before this, but right now this is the ONE Thing that’s driving all our health goals.”

FOR MY PERSONAL LIFE …

“Kids are a blessing and, in a marriage, sometimes you need to remind yourself why you had them in the first place! Even though the middle of the week is pretty busy, Wendy and I decided to take a stand and establish our date night. As a bonus, it’s much easier to get a babysitter midweek than on weekends, which makes making it a habit that much easier.”

FOR MY KEY RELATIONSHIPS …

“This may come as a surprise to many people, but I’m not naturally great at keeping in touch with the important people around me. Today, I’m trying to build the habit of making two calls a day and my KW MAPS Coach is keeping me honest. The accountability that comes from my coach is a huge component. It’s a big reason why we started The ONE Thing Group Coaching Program, so that others who read The ONE Thing could have powerful accountability in implementing the book’s concepts.”

FOR MY JOB …

“It’s four hours a day at whatever matters most. When we’re in book mode, I spend four hours a day writing or researching for current and future books.”

FOR MY BUSINESS …

“If there’s ONE Thing you take away from spending four hours a day with Gary Keller for more than a year writing, it’s that talented people are the key to a successful business. Which is why I have a standing appointment on Wednesdays to meet with talent. If I could add 50 talented people to my network every year, it would be transformative.”

FOR MY FINANCES …

“After working on The Millionaire Real Estate Investor, Wendy and I set a goal to become millionaires. The priority for building wealth, as we described in the book, is tracking your net worth. It’s been the ONE Thing that drives all of our financial decisions. The goal is on my 411 as a reminder, and I created a habit of checking it once a month to make sure we’re on track. We use Mint.com, so it’s as easy as logging in and looking at the Net Worth column.”
