Into easy ones making them automatic and independent of our will power Each of us has millions of habits in how we do our work interact with others perceive the world and think about ourselves Left unexamined these habits are just as likely to hinder our progress as they are to push it along Without a deliberate system for building habits we become our own worst en. This is a book about how building good habits and being consistent with those habits can make a man a superman Author tells about about how he does it in this book Here are some notes that i took1 When people learn that I write every single day study a foreign language every day work on my big projects every day eat healthy every day work out every other day and maintain a consistent sleep schedule they marvel at the deep well of self discipline that I have In truth though it s all just habits that feel easy Habits are the closest we can get to having superpowers2 Replacing just a few key negative habits with a few positive habits can easily be the difference between being mostly unhappy and being happy almost all of the time3 The benefit of a habit isn t the magnitude of each individual action you take but the cumulative impact it will have on your life in the long term4 Missing two days of a habit is habit suicide If missing one day reduces your chances of long term success by a small amount like five percent missing two days reduces it by forty percent or so Three days missed and you may as well be starting over5 When you first miss a habit the next occurrence of it should become a top priority You must execute on that habit at any level possible Do it perfectly if you can but do it terribly if that s all you can handle Just make sure that you do it6 Just like a marriage any habit that s intended to last forever will reuire loyalty through good and bad sickness and health7 Remember that the power of a habit isn t actually in the individual execution but in the consistency It is far far worse to skip doing something than to just do a horrible job of it8 So if you re trying to lose weight evaluate yourself based on how well you stick to your plan rather than the number on the scale especially in the short term9 Track your adherence to process not your results10 Sometimes building small habits can build momentum and self confidence that gives people the strength and motivation to tackle the larger ones11 The first phase of habits countering your weaknesses makes you the best version of yourself12 Exploring areas that just aren t you is how you expand how you define yourself and take things to the next level13 create habits to surround yourself with positive people The way I did this was to create a habit of only hanging out with people who I wanted to become better friends with Within half a year this changed my social circle significantly for the better14 Whether other people are doing smart things dumb things things that help us or things that harm us both parties can be best served through fostering compassion and minimizing focus on how wrong the other is15 Remember that everyone is just doing their best and trying to be happy just like you 16 Eating healthy food may be the single most important habit that you can cultivate17 Sugar and highly refined grains are the most significantly unhealthy things in the standard diet Eliminating those two groups of foods is about eighty percent of getting to a healthy diet18 Items to cut out include refined sugars including all fruit juices agave and maple syrups and honey and refined grains such as white flour white rice and white pasta19 increase your intake of complex carbohydrates like brown rice as well as natural simple carbohydrates like fruit20 The goal isn t to have a perfect diet in every way but to eliminate the dozen or so foods that do the most damage and to enjoy your diet enough to make it sustainable21 When you successfully tackle sugar and refined carbohydrates you can turn your attention to fats The greatest threat is consuming too many Omega 6 and Omega 9 fats These are found in most cooking oils as well as non pasture raised meat eggs and dairy22 limit your oil intake to coconut oil for cooking and dressing olive oil for dressing and grass fed butter Meat should be limited to grass fed beef and lamb pasture raised pork and poultry and wild caught fish23 experiment with extremely healthy foods like miso soup kale cruciferous vegetables tempeh nuts and seeds24 I eat a sardine sandwich and tuna sandwich almost every day for lunch Any time I m running low on Ezekiel bread spinach hummus or fish I restock so that I m never than a few minutes away from a healthy meal25 The goal with good sleep is to get as much sleep as your body wants probably around 8 hours on average and to wake up without an alarm clock26 The first step towards a good sleep habit is creating a good sleep environment The key components of a good sleep environment are complete darkness and silence27 The tipping point for me was reading the excellent book the Willpower Instinct which said that the two best practices for increasing willpower were working out and meditating every day28 There are a lot of purported benefits of meditation all of which I m sure are experienced by one person or another but the most significant benefit I ve derived is better impulse control29 Every day just sit for five minutes in a uiet space close your eyes and focus on your breath For the first minute or two it can help to subvocalize breathe in breathe out breathe in breathe out Such a simple task is enough to keep your mind focused30 Your overriding goal is just to sit there for five minutes Any time you do that you have successfully meditated When you notice that your mind starts thinking about something else refocus on your breath31 The most tangible benefit I noticed from meditation was that it created a space in between feeling an impulse and acting on it32 Work out three days a week doing three exercises each day Monday is deadlifts pullups and rows Wednesday is bench press incline bench press and curls Friday is suat or leg press straight leg deadlift and cable crunches Deadlifts of both varieties are two sets of 4 6 reps pullups are three sets of 4 6 everything else is three sets of 8 1233 Shifting your diet to 30 40% protein including a shake one hour before working out will help34 Ideas don t exist in a vacuum so whatever outside influences we re exposed to become a part of our creation process and affect our output35 Our brains are lazy and we re creatures of habit That means that without conscious effort we will only do what is comfortable and familiar36 By making desirable behaviors comfortable and familiar we can change them from being cumbersome and mentally taxing to comfortable and easy37 I noticed that having a clean and uncluttered living and working space makes it easier to think helps keep my stress levels low and improves my mood38 The essential habit of becoming a minimalist is the habit of regularly evaluating how your possessions either add to or detract from the conscious life you re living and then getting rid of those things that are burdensome39 Twice then uit is very simple When you want to uit working for the first time don t Push through and work some The second time you want to uit also don t uit Push through again The third time you want to uit go ahead and uit This habit is deceptively simple but is very effective40 To truly exceed our normal capabilities we must learn to use that willpower as efficiently as possible To do that we habitualize as much as possible taking actions that previously consumed willpower and making them automaticA good and easy to read book
