That workout we skip or the project we procrastinate on are not isolating incidents. They will compound, and while they're unnoticeable today, they will have an effect over time.

Choosing comfort over stretching yourself becomes a cause set in motion and a reason to do it again and again.

Every time you decide to do the easy thing, instead of the right thing, you are shaping your identity.

If you want to change where you are going, you need to do what's right. Self-discipline is built one step at a time, especially when you don't feel like doing it. For example, when the alarm clock goes off, you can choose to hit the snooze button and go back to sleep, or you can get out of bed and make progress towards your goals.

  1. Have a "To Stop" list. Identify the behaviour you want to stop and what you should do instead.
  2. Decide the type of person you want to become, then you won't take isolated incidents carelessly.
  3. Identify your Why. Why do you want to start a business? Why do you want to lose 14 pounds?
