We Are Our Habits

We are our habits. Per James Clear our habits are a vote for who we are. Each time we do something we are reinforcing an ideal of ourselves.

James even mentioned that if identify with being someone who is fit, if one day we really failed to prioritize a workout, it would be worthwhile to do just 5 push-ups. Not because this would be enough to make us physically stronger. But because it would reinforce the habit of who we are. We are voting ourselves into the office of fitness.

A good side effect of this strategy is that because starting is the hardest part, once we get started we will probably end of continuing. Those 5 push-ups could lead to an entire sweaty workout.
