How To Choose Good Habits

  • Create a detailed vision you're compelled to chase.
  • Research people who have reached your goals.

Good Habits For Health and Fitness

Good Habits For Finance and Wealth

  • Create a Household Budget: the best habit to help you save money. A household budget helps to encourage frugality and discourage impulse spending. You’ll feel more motivated to engage in other good financial habits once you’ve got this in place.
  • Financial Audits. This involves frequent checks as to whether you’re spending your money as wisely as possible.

Good Habits For Productivity

  • Meditation: You’ll train your mind to remain focused and not to wander into daydreams. Meditation has also been known to help improve sleep quality and decrease stress.

How Habits Are Formed

  • Cue — The scenario that triggers the desire to engage in the habit. It’s usually a time of day, a set of surroundings, a specific emotion or a set of ritualized behaviors
  • Routine — The action itself
  • Reward — The reason you feel good having engaged in the habit. This is usually the satisfaction of a specific craving.

How to Avoid Bad Habits

Identifying the cue and the reward you’re craving is key to eliminating bad habits.
More often than not, you can quit bad habits by adding a little “friction”.
With this information, you can replace any bad habit with a healthier one that offers the same reward.

How to Stick to Good Habits

The development of most good habits involves cutting and replacing bad ones.

  • Losing weight involves cutting out snacking
  • Productivity involves cutting procrastination and focusing on Deep Work
  • Financial prosperity involves cutting your impulse spending

Great Results

... are built from small actions that you take every day.

It is your habits that will determine who you are and what you can accomplish in the future.

Start Your Day Early

Wake up early and you can spend some undisturbed time alone and do your most important tasks or get ready for what is coming during the day.

You may feel uneasy and uncomfortable at first, but you need to overcome it and turn it into a habit. Wake up 15 minutes earlier and gradually improve from there can be a good strategy.

Spend 30 Minutes Into Reading

You can do this either in the morning before you start your day or before you sleep at night. Read relevant books that will improve your knowledge or just read personal development books.

Starting good habits and sticking to them

  1. Harness the dopamine effect: identify the desired outcome. Mentally walking yourself through the process of success and the joys and benefits it brings can teach your brain to be motivated by something other than dread.
  2. Start with baby-steps: identify the “tiny habits”  behaviors — we should start with small actions that we can celebrate.
  3. Use triggers: these new habits follow other routines that are already ingrained into your daily life(triggers), so every time you complete this already existing behavior, there will be a trigger, or an automatic reminder, in your brain to do the new one.
  4. Let it snowball.
