The easy thing and the right thing

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.

How to minimise isolating events

  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?
