Good luck with your habits friends!! What one habit are you GOING to build this year? P.S. Yes, it's true. I used the word "trying" in the title of the video and completely contradicted myself. It just sounded better as a title, what can I say?

You could exchange the "trying" with "planning" or "planned". Since that is what you did/you are doing. I like your video and especially the way you ended the video. "Did he just say....." - cute. Thanks!

Hello! One thing I wanted to recommend is learning about the culture, history, and current affairs concerning the aboriginal and other indigenous communities of Australia. It is not unlike how the US treats their own Indigenous communities, and in some points in recent history (the 60s 70s 80s and 90s) it was downright inhumane but not talked about enough. Not all it bad though as many successful and talented artists have been given platform, there are some acts that have the potential to be foundations for at least some healing and rebuilding, infact the population of aboriginal australians for one example is actually growing, but there still is not enough public knowledge among western cultures about indigenous cultures, and there are still profound issues they are dealing with every day.

Hey Matt, I’m a little behind on commenting on this but curious how you address “finishing a book”. Say it’s Atomic Habits, which I personally just finished as per your recommendations. Atomic habits has a lot of activities/exercises to implement some of the theory in the book. Do you give yourself sometime to focus on that theory and the activities before jumping into another book? Or just continue the habit of reading and try to add onto that the activities suggested? I guess the questions is how do you approach some books, that include a call to action so to speak?

It's just normal. The Moment you invest a lot of time and energy into your job, like an adult should do, you let slip a habit like reading or sports. For me it was reading. In 2019 I set a goal to read a book per month, whichvI achieved. Sadly due to the pandemic it slipped again. Luckily I stuck to working out andceating healthy. I will statt reading again.

Great as always, I love your videos! Building a habit and following a habit is not the same though. To build a habit, you need to learn your brain to start something without even thinking about it. Reading two books per month is not a habit but a goal. Reading every day is a habit and it doesn't matter if you read one or fifty pages. I'm writing about it because I was failing and failing and failing with every single resolution for years before I understood this. It's easier to build a habit if the thing you do is not challenging. You have no excuses to not go for a run for 5 minutes, it's just 5 minutes even if it's raining. Do it for a month and it won't matter if you run for 5 or 50 minutes, you will go for a run every single day. A great source of knowledge about that topic is the podcast called Huberman's Lab by Neuroscientist Dr. Andrew Huberman (he's on youtube as well).

I think deep down, we all love reading. We're just so used to instant gratification and the speed of which information floods our feeds, that we don't really want to invest the time. Insider tip: Watch Max Joseps's Video "BOOKSTORES: How to Read More Books in the Golden Age of Content". It always pushes me to pick up all my books and reading them all at once. It's an ode to books and the art of reading.

The best way I've found the ability to form these habits is just initially doing that thing every day. Doesn't matter how many pages I read or how much I write in my journal, it's all about building a habit of turning up. After a few weeks, the habit forms and there's a lot less resistance to sitting down and proceeding with the task ... it's no longer a burden and becomes a joy. From there on, it's much easier to build on the habit and do more of it consistently. And above all, your goal should not be the end goal but the process of the goal. So instead of saying "I'm going to run a marathon in a year", say to yourself "I'm going to run for at least 10 minutes every other day" ... as time goes on and you proceed with this, running a marathon seems a lot more reachable.

Thank you for the video! The feelings you describe with reading have been the same for me. But I have been far worse in making reading stick on my board of habits. I know I love it, I know I feel great when reading and after reading, just like you described, but I have been miserable at really sitting down and reading. The most difficult thing for me is to make the time for it. So let's fucking change that!

Hey Matt, it is now scientifically proven that a new habit is developed in around 21 days and a lifestyle is made in 90 days out of that habit. You can get used to it more rapidly and adapt to that lifestyle if you don't go easy on yourself with the 2-day-rule. Also habits are learned better if the practice takes place at a younger age, it's a huge factor. In conclusion, I would say that "You don't need 12 habits" doesn't really make sense because it is relatively easier at a younger age. And the challenge is about developing a non-existing habit, it wouldn't be a challenge if good habits are already learned since childhood.
