Your knowledge is a lagging measure of your learning habits. Your clutter is a lagging measure of your cleaning habits. You get what you repeat.”
  • “To improve your habits, you need to reduce the number of decisions you make. Instead of constantly trying to make good choices, it’s better to develop good habits and let them make the choices for you. This way, you conserve your mental energy and focus on the things that matter most.”
