“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” — Will Durant, historian, paraphrasing Aristotle, ancient Greek philosopher
- Habits are regular actions that support us.
- Due to the power of Accumulation, habits can add up to huge results over time.
- Habits require Willpower to create. It’s better to use Guiding Structure to help install the habits you want to adopt.
- Habits are easier to install if you use triggers. For example, make a note to take your vitamins every time you wash your teeth.
- Focus on installing one habit at a time until it feels automatic and you can move to the next one. Remember that your Willpower is limited.
Questions for Consideration:
- What productive habits have you already installed?
- What habits, if you installed them, would produce positive results in your life?
- Are there any triggers or structural changes you could use to make installing the habit easier?
