Habits: Thinking in Reverse

I was reading Atomic Habits by James Clear and I was intrigued when I read "... work backwards from the results you want to the type of person who could get those results"

It's about asking yourself, "What kind of person can get this outcome". For instance, if you are learning to be a good software programmer and when faced with challenges. Ask this, "Who is the type of person who could get around this obstacle."

I just realized that I've used this whenever I was at my lowest and it really worked. You may give it a try.

Planning vs taking action

Motion makes you feel like you're getting things done. But really, you're just preparing to get something done.

Most of the time we're so focused on figuring out the best approach that we never get around to taking action.

Planning and strategizing are all good things, but they don't produce results.

Uprooting An Oak Differs From Cultivating A Delicate Flower

We all know there r 2 types of habits- good habits and bad ones. We find it very difficult eradicating our bad habits and cultivating good ones.

Let's suppose assume an oak tree. The way it deeply trenches its roots deep down resembles the potential of our bad habit. Not only unless v work hard but also with consistency we'll be able to get rid off it.

A good habit resembles a very beautiful flower which is delicate to handle. Unless we have patience ,hope and with constant work ,we can't cultivate it.

Hence ,to cultivate or eradicate any habit all we need is

  • Love
  • Patience
  • Hardwork and
  • Consistency

The best way to start a new habit is by Implementation Intention. 

It is a plan you make beforehand about when and where to act. That is, how you intend to implement a particular habit.

The format for creating an implementation intension is :

“When situation X arises, I will perform response Y.”
