We Are Creatures Of Habit

My first awareness of the impact that habits have on our enjoyment, success and experience in life came when I read the best selling book, The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People.

BORING was my biggest fear, right ahead of having to see that I was not destined for the kind of success that the author spoke of.
