After reading the section of the 23 Things... labele 7 1/2 Habits..., we're asked to comment on the easiest and the most difficult of the habits for us personally. For me, the easiest is to begin with the end in mind. I usually jump to the finished product, then work backwards and plan the steps to get to the end I want. The most difficult for me is to view problems as challenges rather than failures. I typically want everything to work the first time, and when a project doesn't, I become frustrated and generally have to walk away from it, then return after I've had time to mentally regroup. I keep working on that - and try to keep "the end" in mind - not just the steps involved to achieve it.
