IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
The development of most good habits involves cutting and replacing bad ones.
Set achievable goals and build them.
Small wins make you feel good about setting targets, highlight your progression and prove that success is possible. Without these stepping stones, it’s easy to get disheartened and give up.
Long-term goals are your most powerful motivators. If your ‘why’ is strong enough, you’ll find your ‘how’.
Create a vision board. Make affirmations. Put it on your phone’s lock screen. Whatever it takes.

It is a good idea to pay attention to where we spend our time and see if there is something we do daily but have outgrown long ago.
Being consistent can also lead to burnout and lack of growth, and to be creative and innovative, we sometimes need a break from our daily activity. When we stop and do something new, we start to be part of a creative process, instead of simply repeating the same thing every day.
The key is to not rely on a rigid consistency but to be resilient enough to withstand any breaks. Our resilient habits are usually the old ones and have some psychological rewards while involving some external accountability.

Click in and out of your work enough times to check the news of social media, and you can go through an entire day without experiencing flow.
We freeze up when it’s time to get started because we know that our ideas aren’t perfect and what we produce might not be any good.
But you can never produce something great if you don't get started and give your ideas time to evolve.
