I'm committed long-term to build good habits. Last year I quit a major one gaming and now im dedicated to tackling one habit that doesn't serve me anymore. So far I've in this order
- Quit Gaming (hours upon hours of dota)
- Quit coffee (I was addicted to it and messed up sleep, I get my warm comfy, fuzzy feeling from other caffeine-free liquids now :)
- Make my bed every morning

I do also go to the gym regularly already because I enjoy and need that shit. I think I've come far as a person, but now I want to hone my productivity / entrepreneurial habits a little bit more.

This month I'm committed to following the
- 1 Most important / 3 musts list from Organizing tomorrow today

What are some habits you guys build and which ones did benefit you the most?

-What are you are least looking forward to doing, yet is important to do? Get that done first thing in your day.

-Read a little on mindset, I typically go for 1 chapter/day. This personally motivates me and keeps my head in the game. Often it is just rereading books like Unscripted , Richest Man in Babylon or The Subtle Art of Not Giving a f*ck.

-Have some human contact. Meet someone new, ask someone to grab coffee/beer and have a chat. Go network. Catch up with people/family.

-Exercise or at least some light activity is pretty obvious, but people neglect maintenance. 10 minutes a day, either when waking up or before going to sleep (or both) do some basic full body stretches/foam roll/ yoga and postural work. You'll hold off on needing that wheelchair for much longer.

My Top 5:

1. Waking up early (but don't sacrifice on your sleep)
2. No Porn/ No Fap
3. Meditation
4. Reading
5. Ice cold showers

Cold showers are definitely the most dificult habit but also the most benificial. You'll feel an absolute endorphin rush afterwards and ready to conquer the day.

Try to build habits that will keep you growing in each area of your life. So something for your health, business, personal development etc.

One good "entrepreneurial habit" is to get up early and take massive action on your business throughout the day. Nothing fancy, but essential.
