Much of personal success is more about habit building than will power. Good habits give us the focus, energy and persistence required to do what we want to do in life.
Now that we have the science and research of habits, habit growing is now possible. Here are three simple steps.
Know your why
The more clear we become on the potential benefits of a new habit, the more energy we have for growing it.
Give it time
Literally, decide when - in what situations and what conditions - in your daily and weekly schedule you will practice the new habit.
Progress in steps
Increase the consistency and frequency of practice one step at a time, aiming for ongoing progress rather than instant perfection.
