I just checked my email and found a Quora question that seemed remarkably close to my project. The question was:
I am ambitious, talented and intelligent, but I lack willpower, discipline, and organization. I am an impulsive procrastinator of the highest order. What can I do to improve?
I was just cracking my knuckles in preparation to respond when I read the top-rated response by Stephen Guise. He basically said that habit formation (rather than motivation) is the real solution! Yes!
He also went on to talk about small habits to lower the willpower threshold and promote long -term consistency. And one of his habits is writing 50 words!
His book is Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results, and I’ll be checking it out.
