That’s my word for 2016. I just realized it within the past couple weeks. The only way some long term goals, like fitness and learning a new language (Japanese, in my case) are going to stick, is if they become integrated in my everyday routine.

I’m lucky to have pretty good resources to motivate myself, make myself accountable(but, I’ll enlist friends and family as we’ll), and to track progress, so I’m optimistic, and realistic.

I’m even continuing on a 2015 goal with writing. Inspired by a few bloggers over the years, 2016's going to be the year I write something every day. It’s already starting to feel less chore-like, and more a routine.
