I'm not a fan of new year resolutions per se. But I do believe that the start of 2018 as a good time to change old habits as any.

This NYT article is good on why you should change. The way you travel to work, the dish you choose on your favourite menu, the way you hire people for the business.

It's all about serendipity - the lucky accidents that help us discover new ways of doing things, more efficiently and more enjoyably.

And of course the real trick is to get into the habit of changing habits. But don't think to hard about something instead of doing it. That's another habit you've got to get out of!
