Habit 1 - Make your bed:
How you do one thing determines how you do everything. Making bed would have a domino effect in life.
Habit 2 - Move, Hydrate, Sunlight:
Move- prime your body for the day, get the blood pumping, so that it knows that it's GO TIME
Hydrate- after 6-8 hours of sleep you wake up dehydrated in the morning. 1-2 glass of water as soon as you wake up will be sufficient.
Sunlight- It's important for healthy function of your circadian rhythm, to give you energy, for better sleep. You can combine this with other chores or with your morning exercise.
Your brain operates with 30% less acuity when you are dehydrated
Habit 3 - Read:
It must be a book that either you're curious about or the subject matter is directly related to the goals you are currently working towards. consistency is the key.
Habit 4 - Prioritise your 3 MITs:
Write down in descending order of importancethe 3 most important tasks (MITs) for today.
Include growth tasks rather than maintenance tasks. Ex, growth task- get out of comfort zone (add more weight) ; maintenance task- do it same way like before (do exercise).
Ask yourself, 'what task if completed first will make everything easier or irrelevant ?' and do it first. Write them down.
Habit 5 - Schedule your day
Do what works for you
There's a famous saying that goes, "If it ain't on your schedule; it ain't happening." - actually the author just made that up :D
But on a little serious note, most of the successful people follow a schedule.
Habit 6 - Run pomodoros
Humans have limited amount of attention span, to leverage it fully use pomodoro method (search on the web if you don't know what it is), to get more work done without burning out.
Habit 7 - Connect
Connect with someone smarter than you. Which typically begins with you reaching out to them.
What will stop you is negative self-talk like, "you're not enough" or "they're too busy" which is garbage, because no one is busy, it is about priorities.
To increase chances of success of connecting with smarter people come from a place of non-neediness and add value to their life.
Habit 8 - Speak clean
By changing the words we use (ex- I wish / I can't.. to I'm going to / I will) , we change our lives. Simple, right?
Habit 9 - Dress for success
Dressing well has a powerful psychological effect on how you feel about yourself and how you behave.
Habit 10 - Be held accountable
Joing or creating group and having an accountability buddy is one of the best investments you can ever make. Without it it's easy to slack off.
Bonus habit - SMILE
No need to tell benefits of smiling. Stating just one of the many below-
Tip 1- 66 days
21 days is a myth. Don't quit until you've successfully implemented habit for a minimum of 66 days. Because everytime it gets stronger in your subconscious.
Tip 2- Build 1 habit at a time
This the the best takeaway for me from this book. Multitasking is a Big No. You'll end up diversifying your focus and losing the momentum required to build a habit.
As arule of thumb start new habit only after 30 days of successful implementation of older habit.
Tip 3- The KISS principle
Keep it simple stupid.
Make it so easy that even your grandma can do it, that it doesn't even bother you doing it.
Tip 4- Establish your why
When you feel like giving up, return to your why you started in the first place.
Tip 5- Keep the context constant
Routine helps in building automaticity.
Cue - action - repeat
Tip 6- Be held accountable

Tip 8- Do it in the morning
After waking up brain is well rested and most primed for productivity. Experiment and see which time works for you.
Tip 9- Pain and pleasure principle
Focus on pleasure of developing a habit as opposed to pain of not developing it.
Tip 10- Write it down
Write down exactly how, where and when you'll implement the habit of your choice.
