Daily Practices for a Rule of Life

  1. Morning prayers before 6am.

  2. Meaningful conversation with someone by asking good questions.

  3. Good meal where I sat down and savored the food.

  4. Walk a mile with Amos (our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel).

  5. Focused my attention for 2 hours on “deep work” to not put out fires at work all day.

I have found great benefit in creating a “habit tracker” for these 5 Daily Practices. They are listed in my journal along with the days of the week to create a simple chart where I mark an “X” to visually track my daily practice. Weeks I live into these rhythms regularly are noticeably different than weeks I live “out of sync”.
