1. Through the years, I’ve learned that the most important thing is to stop thinking about what you don’t want and focus your energy on what you do want.


This is a collection of 30 one-sentence habits of people I’ve met over the years. I hope they help you, too.

All these habits are “toxic” in some way. If you want to be healthy and have a good life, you have to work on your habits every day. And if you’re only making healthy habits, but not doing them consistently, they will eventually go away on their own. I’ve had the good fortune to meet people who do this very well.

I often wondered why good habits remained relatively stable for them, while bad ones slipped away over time (and vice versa). Then one day I realized that what mattered most was not what happens on our most habitual days — it’s what happens across every single day — and I started to look for ways to improve my habit-making skills and keep them up all week long. The more efficient I became at habit-making, the more regular my habit-making was in general throughout the week. It turned out that the science of habit is pretty simple: focus on one thing at a time and do it well each day.

The trick is to focus all your energy on being consistent and doing things well each day; then let your willpower take care of the rest of your behavior over time until it becomes automatic (or else you start thinking about other things and forget about your habit). Every single day we need new habits; every single day we need healthy ones; but every single day we also need bad ones as well — we just don’t notice them because they are so routine and automatic that we don’t think about them anymore.


2. The hardest part of reaching a goal is taking the first step.


I was a very outgoing person. When I was younger, I was always being told by my parents that “if you want to be popular, act more like a boy”. It seems like such a stupid thing to say, but it made sense at the time. As I grew up, and as I learned about the concept of “being good at something” (which is something I didn’t know existed when I was a kid), it became clear that this idea of acting more like a boy wasn’t true at all. For example, some kids are very good at sports; other kids aren’t interested in sports at all or they just play games in the background. If you want to be popular with other people, you need to practice and learn how to act differently than most people around you.

One way of realizing this is by taking “if you want to be popular with other people…” one step further: if you want to be popular with other people, then take it one step further: if you want to get noticed by other people (regardless of their gender), then practice the way they act around others and understand why they do what they do (regardless of whether or not their actions make any sense from an objective perspective).

In fact, anyone who tells themselves that this isn’t possible can end up in a very bad position indeed. If your goal is popularity but your friends don’t care about you or won’t reward your efforts unless you fit into their mold, then stop right there and try something else — especially if your friends will take advantage of your mistakes as well as laugh at them! In addition, just because someone doesn’t care doesn’t mean they won’t also care if there’s enough money in it for them. Just because someone isn’t open-minded enough to learn new things doesn’t mean they won’t also have their own opinions on subjects that interest them — even if those opinions don’t make any sense from an objective perspective. These are the reasons why we should never take advice from friends — after all, advice is usually worse than no advice since it will lead us astray eventually anyway!


3. It’s very easy to get caught up in the habit of focusing on all that


I’ve been doing this since the beginning of the year. I’m going through a list of articles written by people who were successful in building better habits.

It’s very easy to get caught up in the habit of focusing on all that activity and not taking time to review what you’re doing. I’m very interested in learning how other people are doing it, and I’m trying to do it more often.

That said, it’s very easy to get caught up in the habit of focusing on all that activity and not taking time for reviewing what you’re doing. So, although my goal is to be more aware of where I’m spending my time, it can be difficult at times to review what I’m actually doing. That’s why it was so awesome when one day this guy sent me a message on Twitter: “I spend most of my time reading (and occasionally blogging) about writing habits and lifestyle changes.”—Khalil Gibran (@khaligraph). He wrote some really great stuff about how he’d done this—and his blog was one of the first places that really started me thinking seriously about being conscious with each moment that I spend on my own device (not just with regard to reading but also using email apps, etc.).

That really made an impression on me—that there are so many different ways to approach taking care of yourself that there is no one-size-fits-all way. It could be anything from making a rule for yourself about responding immediately when you see something important posted on Twitter or checking your email once in a while (which has made me more aware of how much email gets dropped into my inbox). So, if you need help with any aspect of this, feel free to reach out! It’s been super helpful talking with him and others like him who share their experiences so far! Now go find out more about how other people are building better habits!
