They determine whether we find the strategies necessary to succeed and whether we come up with a story that will empower us.

Words and emotions

The words we attach to our experience become our experience. 

Words have a biochemical effect on the body. For example, if you use a word like “devastated,” you’re going to produce a very different biochemical effect than if you say, “I’m a bit disappointed.

Start with a small shift

Replace just one word that will transform the way you experience something “negative.” This is how you create a choice instead of a habitual reaction.

These small changes in your vocabulary give you the power to change your experiences in life by lowering the intensity of negative emotions to the point where they no longer control you.

Your resolve

The secret to effectively setting and achieving your goals is to have a large vision and an achievable plan.

The pursuit matters

The pursuit matters just as much as the goal.
Consider why you're pursuing your goal and how the journey to achieve it will help you grow as a person.

The right scope

People often give up on their resolutions because they set unattainable goals.

Try to set a goal that you can reasonably achieve within one year. If it is challenging to complete it in your set timeframe, you might become overwhelmed and give up. If the goal will take more than one year, try and set a benchmark for what you'd like to accomplish in a year.

And it’s far easier to keep up than to catch up, and with the right habits, clutter never accumulates.

The Strategy of Convenience

Make it as easy as possible to maintain order:

  • Use hooks instead of hangers. 
  • Have abundant waste baskets.
  • Clear out everything you don't need, don't use, or don't love, so there's more room for what remains. When it's hard to put things away, we create clutter.
The Strategy of Clarity

Know exactly what you expect:

  • Have an exact place for items (keys, sunglasses, batteries, etc.)
  • Know who's responsible for what task. Avoid the  problem of shared work.
