While a small part of our life is happenstance - most of where we stand in life happens because of where we stand with our actions and habits.

Change your habits, change your life.
Image: Black hole tearing apart a star.
This computer-simulated image from NASA recreates an actual event studied with help from NASA’s orbiting Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) and the Pan-STARRS1 telescope on the summit of Haleakala in Hawaii. It took place about 2.7 billion light years from Earth in a galaxy known as PS1-10jh.
A flare in ultraviolet and optical light revealed gas falling into the black hole as well as helium-rich gas that was expelled from the system. When the star is torn apart, some of the material falls into the black hole, while the rest is ejected at high speeds. The flare and its properties provide a signature of this scenario and give unprecedented details about the stellar victim.
Black hole ripping up a star. Fascinating and very sad in a way. I see the black hole in people’s lives. There are things that completely suck up a star, literally - drugs, bad habits, wasteful spending, foolish friends and yet, somehow more people may be saddened by this picture than that of a life wasted. I am saving this pic.
The Home Routines app is a phenomenal productivity app for those who focus on habits.
The book, the Power of Habit, says that 95% of what we accomplish in our lives is due to habits. Now, I use homeroutines for even my school routines. I have a morning and evening routine each day, but also different routines for the first 10 minutes of my planning period and for Saturdays. Although Called home routines, it is a powerful app for business too. If you have an ipad and an iPhone it syncs. $3.99

Replace bad habits with good. Sounds simple. Then why dont we do it? “The old habits of coping didn’t build up overnight, and they won’t go away overnight either. We built them up through years of repetition, and the only way to change them is also years of repetition.”
