A Non-Zero Life

From Shawn Blanc

As anyone who knows about building habits, long-term consistency is everything. There is an idea with habits and routines that you always want a non-zero day. A non-zero day is a day where you at least do something — just so long as you don’t do nothing: Do at least one push-up, floss at least one tooth, write for at least 1 minute, etc. Non-zero days keep your momentum always moving forward.

A few weeks ago, the thought occurred to me about having more than just a non-zero day — but rather, a Non-Zero Life.

A Non-Zero Life means building simple-but-healthy habits you can do every day that impact every area of your life: Your career, your health, your relationships, your money, your inner-personal life… Don’t let one of these areas slip away.

I am so incredibly bad at this.
