Make Habits that Stick!

"We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Will Durant

The most important posts about habits:-

  • My habit system - I used all the information I'd gleaned from reading all the best books and resources on habit formation to create a "system" that I run through when trying to build habits.  
  • Why trying harder doesn't work - the fundamentals of willpower, why it's so valuable and why it's a poor strategy for habit building
  • How to design your life to preserve willpower - by being mindful and understanding how our willpower becomes unnecessarily depleted on a daily basis can help us maintain self control and see things through to the end
