When you want to cultivate good habits, learn to “recharge your batteries” - this can take the form of meditation, prayer, sleep, or whatever works for you. You should also set aside time for things you genuinely enjoy and things that make you happy!

It’s important to prioritise and schedule your personal time. Keep it free from meetings and calls or it will quickly be overrun by the pace of life. Just remember that no engine can run perpetually without fuel, and even the most efficient machines can eventually overheat and break down without sufficient care.

Make patient, permanent, progress

As mentioned, there’s no need to go from 0 to 100 overnight. focus on making today 1% better than yesterday and benefit from compounding growth. If you can approach each task just one per cent better each day than the day before, you’ll have improved by 3778% in a year. Obviously it’s hard to compute what that output means day-to-day, but the logic is consistent. You’ll gain far more down the line with small but replicable improvements than by trying to reinvent yourself a dozen times.
