How you do one thing is how you do everything

How you do one thing, is how you do everything. How you show up in one area of your life is how you show up in all areas of your life.

How I show up in one area of my life is how I show up in all areas of my life.

Because, the mind runs in patterns. You might think that you’ve got something boxed up and under control, and that a certain behaviour only shows up in one area of your life. But, the chances are, it actually shows up in all other areas of your life, but you are just not fully aware of it. So it’s not a judgement, but just take notice. Pay attention. Become aware of areas in your life where you unconsciously (or consciously) cut corners. Maybe it’s as small as making your bed, but not tucking the sheets all the way in. Or, maybe it’s completing a task to 80% of your ability but then stopping when you think you had done enough. Big or small. Unconscious or conscious. By cutting corners in your life, it may seem like you’re just skimping on the unimportant stuff, but repetition becomes a habit.

Eventually, repetition allows you to get used to the idea that doing 80% of something is okay, or that skipping the finer details won’t matter. But one day this mentality will cross over into things that do matter. You'll ponder on the thought why success eludes you, but really, the answer is in your process. How you do one thing, is how you do everything.
