How to Form
- SAMUEL JOHNSON
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
At the beginning, stick to the habit every single day to help reprogram your mind.
Instead of tackling a huge life-changing habit (that can quickly overwhelm), stick to mini-habits.
1. Write a book >>> Write 10 minutes daily 2. Run 5 miles >>> Walk 10 minutes daily 3. Lose 20lbs. >>> Eat a healthy breakfast every day 4. Save $1,000 this month >>> Skip morning coffeeshop today
Attach desired habit to an already established one
if you go to check the mail daily, add a quick ten-minute walk to it.
4. Focus on time
Set time limits instead of task limits.
instead of saying you'll write a chapter of your book today, focus on writing for 1 hour straight.
1. CONSISTENCY stick to it daily! 2. MINI-HABITS make small habits 3. ATTACH attach small changes to existing habits 4. FOCUS ON TIME set time limits, not tasks limits
