I’ve come to believe that two major forces can greatly improve processes for doing all kinds of things: HABITS and CHECKLISTS. The article linked to below discusses a little about the habit side of things, and there are two good books that can give you a more thorough rundown of habits and checklists, if you haven’t yet read them: The Power of Habit and The Checklist Manifesto. I've been tinkering with my learning process over the last few months to develop some sustainable habits, and I think I've finally got something down that I really like. But that is a topic for another post, on another day.
One of the things I’ve learned in my last 7 years of creating new habits is the power of compound habit interest.
