In this short post, I will cover how powerful habit is and how it can help you achieve your goal.
Habit is a “second natural” thing we can create by consistently doing it for 60 days, even Robin Sharma mentions it in one of his videos.
What is second natural, well when you do an activity for more than 60 days your body and mind register it so well that you should be able to do that activity with ease & much better every next time you do it. An example would be if you program/code on a computer for more than a year, you don’t have to look at the keyboard for typing; it becomes your second natural way to know where the “A” key is with help of muscle memory.
This applies to all professions, if you do a certain activity over and over again you will do it faster, better, & efficient, that it will become your second natural thing.
Now let’s see how can this help you become successful,
- Set a goal
- Create a list of activities to achieve your goal
- Do that activity for 60 days so that it will become a habit
And that helps you achieve your goal in a faster and consistent phase.
You’re not going to get great at anything in a month — that’s not the way the world works. But you 100% can get better at anything in a month.
Do it “better” every time it will yield the “best”.
Bonus Tip: Create a habit tracker and check-in every day once you achieve it, this will get you motivated to do it every day.
