Anticipation beats realisation

My gran used to say “anticipation is better than realisation”. James Clear says your brain has far more neural circuitry for wanting rewards than for liking them. Same idea, poetry vs prose.

Actions embody identity

Your actions are how you embody your identity. They are evidence to others, and to yourself, of who you are. For practical purposes, you are what you do

Be your own Pavlov

Committing to action is necessary but not sufficient. To do something new/different you need to know what do to and when to do it so that it becomes automatic. Be your own Pavlov - hashtagCueToDo hashtagaction

You are what you practice

We transform and evolve through our practices.
We practice when we do something repeatedly, either deliberately or unthinkingly.
