Earlier today, I spoke to James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits. He talked about habits being the compound interest of self-improvement. The drip drip drip approach to building a habit through consistent daily practice can snowball over time and yield astounding results.
One of the best ways to encourage ourselves to develop habits that stick is to change our environment to promote that habit. So if you want to spend less time watching television, then don’t have all your lounges and chairs facing the TV. Better still don’t have a TV at all.
