How to determine what action to take or habits to build

We live our lives in the ever changing moment. There is nothing we can do about what has passed, and we have little control over the future.  We all seek to improve either our life situation or our experience of life by our daily actions and the habits we build.

How should we keep ourselves on track to at least plan to take the right actions? It helps to determine firstly what you are currently doing and classify the experience.

There are essentially 4 classes of experience:

Class 1: You do something that feels good to you, is good for you, is good for others and is good for the greater good of the world. –  doing charitable work or helping somebody.

Class 2: You do something that does not feel good to you, is good for you, is good for others and is good for the greater good of the world. –  Exercise and eating healthy food

Class 3: You do something that feels good to you, is not good for you, is not good for others and is not good for the greater good of the world.- Drinking a lot or eating a lot of ice cream

Class 4: You do something that does not feel good to you, is not good for you, is not good for others and is not good for the greater good of the world. – Complaining or doing work you hate.

The first step is to make a record of the things and actions you have taken during the day and then place them as best you can into one of the 4 categories.

If the activity falls into Class 1 – Great, carry on doing it or even better do more of it.

If the activity falls into class 4 – Just stop. If you struggle to stop seek help to stop – for instance asking someone to ensure you pay a fine or donate to a cause you hate every time you do whatever it is.

If the activity is classified as Class 3  this is going to be more difficult to stop as you like doing it. Use the same habit breaking strategies as for Class 4 experiences but be more careful to get help as it will be easy to slip back into a habit.

The great movement forward in life is seeking to convert Class 2 activities into Class 1 by adjusting them slightly to make them enjoyable.

This will often require creative thinking on your part but is worthwhile if you want to build great habits into your life.
