The secret to success

Good morning,

I’ve been reading the book Atomic Habits by James Clear.

He writes that making a choice that is 1 percent better or 1 percent worse might seem inconsequential in the moment. But over time, these decisions are the difference between…

who you are and who you aspire to be.

The bottom line?

Success hinges on maintaining consistent daily habits.

Over time, these tiny changes snowball into remarkable achievements.

What habits are you committing to this summer?

  • 10 minutes of daily reading
  • Starting your day with a glass of water
  • Choosing a healthy snack
  • Getting 8 hours of sleep
  • Putting on sunscreen every morning

💡Did you know?

When your child reads at least 20 minutes a day, this can prevent the “summer slide”. It’s the decline in reading that can happen during the summertime.

  • Choose books wisely for your kids—ones they enjoy that are at the right level.
  • Engage kids in discussions.
  • Read with and to your child. Especially when they find reading independently a challenge.

Challenge of the Week

Family Night

Look, I understand.

You have a million things to do and never enough time to do it. I can have a hard time disconnecting from responsibilities too.

But make an effort to shift your mindset and be truly present. Because your kids won’t be around forever, and your time to create deep relationships and unforgettable memories is quite limited.

So, make time for a regular family night that encourages connection, smiles, and the funniest moments you’ll remember in ten years.
