Habits are what you do automatically when a cue is triggered. There are two books on habit that I recommend. One is Power of Habits by Charles Duhigg, and another is Atomic Habits by James Clear. Both of those books are a good starting point.

Habits are interesting, and they are a good way of disciplining yourself.



  • When doing things, I have worked mostly on the small health and focus habits in the morning. It is much easier to "cue" in the morning than in the evening.
  • Bad habits are there for a reason; I think the removal of cues is important. During the pandemic, I felt like it was too easy to grab a beer or something from the fridge, so I had to stop having beer in the fridge, then the monthly beer consumption fell drastically. If there is honey in the jar the bear will eat it.
