RELATED IDEA

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.”

Habits are mental shortcuts

A habit is a routine or behavior that is carried out repeatedly and most of the time automatically.

When you are faced with a problem repeatedly, your brain starts to automate the process of solving it. Your habits are sets of automatic solutions that solve the problems you come across regularly.

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.
