The habits we acquire

These are simply the consistent ways we think, speak, and act in different situations. They are largely unconscious, which is what gives them their power—both positively and negatively.

The relationships we pursue

We have to be more intentional about the people we choose to associate with:

  • If you want to lose weight, hang out with people who make good diet and exercise choices.
  • If you want a better marriage, socialize with people who have healthy ones.
  • If you want to make more money, associate with people who are successful.

The Reasoning Behind The 2–Minute Rule

The 2–Minute Rule overcomes procrastination by automating the decision-making process, making it so easy to start taking action that you can’t say no.

It consists of breaking down tasks into chunks that can be completed into 2 minutes and deciding to do immediately any tasks that fit into this timeframe. Obviously, many goals take more than 2 minutes, but following this rule allows you to kickstart a habit and slowly add on to it, making it less likely that you will give up.
