Building  a habit (When you want to change your behavior):

Application of Habit Formations:

  1. Make a list of current habits (Habit listing)
  2. Build on current habits with new habits (Habit stacking)
  3. Design environment - make cues for good habits obvious and bad habit cues invisible
  4. Automate habits

Other Points:

Standardization before  optimization 

Don't break the chain of habits - get back on track as quickly as possible.

To increase odds of success is to [choose] the right field of competition. [Play a game that favors your strengths]. If you can't find one, create one using your strengths.
