Focus on starting

The skill to master is getting started. You don't have to exercise for half an hour; you only need to start.

Often, we're supposed to do a new habit, and we procrastinate, turn to distractions, and rationalize our resistance.

Feedback is essential when you learn a new skill. However, when people learn the skill of 'creating new habits,' they think making mistakes is a sign of being a failure and showing an utter lack of discipline.

Our minds are good at coming up with rationalizations, especially when we're procrastinating on something:

People fail to realise how important developing the habit skill is. They have a specific idea of what their habit will be like, and when it doesn't go according to plan, they feel guilty and think they're a failure.

Overcome your mind's resistance to get started by saying, "I'm all in. I'm going to start today." Then get moving. If you're not good at this, commit to making a small habit change this instant.
