What's Worth Repeating?

There are many times in my life when I make mistakes.  A wise man once told me, "Acknowledge.  Move on."  That advice works well for all my blunders and gaffes.  But, what about the times when I stumble upon something that actually exceeds my expectations?  I say, "repeat it every day and make it part of your life."  Here are some examples I've stumbled upon:
  1. Double up on established habits.  One day I was in a hurry and I decided to do my leg raise exercises while flossing my teeth.  I count to fifty every morning while doubling up on flossing and exercising.  My teeth and my calves are in great shape.
  2. Pack a lunch.  I love peanut butter and jelly.  I also love reducing my debt.  By packing a daily lunch, I get to do two things I love at the same time.  It's healthy and it's saves money.
  3. Praying.  This activity was once reserved for the times in my life when I was backed into a corner.  On good days when everything was going great, I forgot to say thanks for the answered prayers.  This is now a permanent part of my life.
  4. Start your day with your most important priority.  For me, it's writing and blogging.  No matter how busy I am, I make sure to wake up early enough to write first.  This is one of those days when I need to be at my day job early.  That means I need to start my day early enough to accomplish my writing priorities.
  5. Acknowledge the contributions others make before moving on.  It only takes a few seconds to say thank you.  I make a point to do this in all my interactions.  Repeat this every day for thirty days and watch what happens with your relationships.
What are some of the things you do in your life that are worth repeating every day?  Please add your comments below.
