Good habits serve as a shield against the forces that are trying to pull you in a direction you don’t want. “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” “Will habit X improve the quality of my life?” The reason you want to ask yourself that question is that we all need a reason to change. Without that reason, you and I both know we will never actually form a habit. We give up as soon as we experience a setback. It’s important to realize that only you can decide what a good habit is. We need something bigger than superficial reasons. “I want to read one book a week,” you might say. Why? So you can do what? What’s your vision? What are your goals? In general, when you do too many things at the same time, you end up in chaos. And you end up right back where you started. Sounds familiar? One of the reasons we try to do so many things at the same time is that we overestimate ourselves. We think we can achieve a lot in a short period. That’s false.



Step 1: Pick Your Ideal Habits That’s why it’s important to think about where you want to be in life, and then focus on what habits you need to form TODAY. Elimination is the key here. Be very clear about what you want to achieve every single day, week, and year. Every day, work on 3-4 essential (and small) tasks that will bring you closer to your weekly and yearly goals. When you do something every day, you don’t notice any difference at that moment. You think, “Where are the benefits?” But when you keep doing it for a long time, the positive effects compound.
