Chapter Two – Habits
Why Habits Matter
Self-improvement takes a lot of work. Exercising, writing, being
productive, managing your finances, improving your social life, all of these
pursuits take a great deal of energy. It can be a little overwhelming.
It was too much for me to start. Even today, pursuing my perfect
lifestyle is impossible. I always fall a bit short of how I’d like to ideally run
my life.
However, the breakthrough idea that helped me get a lot closer to
that ideal was habits. If you could habituate a particular behavior (say
running your finances or exercising), then you wouldn’t need Herculean
discipline to do it every day.
