Small changes start with a determination to alter one’s habits. Learning better self-control, and understanding why optimizing your environment matters more than you realise.
I’ve read a number of self-help books on habits. I understand how small daily habits can compound and add up over time to produce significant results.
In your habits, you plant the seeds of your future. And, if you’re willing to get your hands dirty in the process of nurturing good habits and killing bad habits, those seeds can grow into trees that bear fruit worth picking.
I’m always looking for ways to work smarter and have only recently begun reading this action-orientated book. I skimmed through each chapter to read the recap. Some concepts will help me fine-tune my current habits, while others will not. Even if I only get one to five new ideas from reading all of the chapters, I’ll have a framework for implementing the author’s approach.
There is no quick fix; small changes take time to bear fruit. It’s tempting to give up when you feel like your efforts are yielding little to no results. But making a commitment to change is the first step toward building a new habit — one that is self-sustaining.
Remember that success is a journey, not a destination. Never stop learning how to better yourself and your circumstances.
Good habits are worth being fanatical about.JOHN IRVING
