The 2 ways you can approach your habits: Progressive and Consistent
• Progressive. You start off easy, make it a little bit harder each time, until you eventually do very difficult things, with a lot less effort.
• Consistent. Do the same thing, with the same expectations, each time. You don’t aim for growth, but maintaining the same, solid baseline.
Since time is a fixed quantity, everything you say yes to implies a no to something else and vice versa.
Saying yes subtly squeezes everything else, but rarely in ways we can easily perceive. When saying no, what is left over is enriched, but this additional space is often neglected.
Flashcards can be a powerful learning tool, but they can also be a waste of time.
Two factors contribute to a lack of motivation.
The two factors can work separately. We may have a few problems but little drive and thus don't move ahead. Or our goal could be very desirous, but a proportionately large pain can hinder us from moving forward.
