In those days in India, yoga was considered an esoteric practice suitable for monks, sadhus and sannyasis but not for the householder, who might lose all worldly interest and abandon his family by undertaking the practice. -Eddie Stern, 2010.

‘Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement. The same way that money multiplies thru compound interest, the effect of your habits multiply as you repeat them.’ -James Clear

1. Say ‘no’ to goal-setting.

Forget about goals. Focus on systems instead. -James Clear

2. Reward yourself.

‘What is rewarded is repeated. What is punished is avoided.’ -James Clear

3. Make it attractive.

‘Self-love and self-care are not something you learn about or practice. They are something you are ethically called to cultivate within yourself, even if they are all that you have left.’ -Mark Manson

4. Have a buddy, or better, a community.

‘The activity provides some sort of structure for the social interaction, including rules you have to follow, rituals, and often a shared goal.’ -Cal Newport

5. Find the right teacher.

‘Faith in your teacher builds up overtime. One person should have one teacher.’ -Mozart Reina

If you want to master a habit, the key is to start with repetition, not perfection. -James Clear

Civilization advances by extending the number of operations we can perform without thinking about them. -Alfred North Whitehead
