It is very important to build a good habit. It is also very easier to enhance your capability as long as you could implement the habit for a certian capability you want to work on. 


However, it is challenging to actually keep doing it especially new things you are not used to do. 


1. Start with peanut

We should lower the initial entry bar mentally and physically as much as possible. We should not feel it is difficult or cumbersome to do it. For example, if we want to build a habit of going gym, we can simply just first visit gym without exercise.  Before getting comfortable and enjoy yourself or seeing the impact, we should not increase burden to do the habit.


2.    Implement with some existing habit

Each of us has a routine. Why not leverage one of these habit momenetum. We do wake up and sleep. We do eat 2 or 3 times in a day. We do commute to school or office. Right after or before routine X, we could set the new habit you would like to implement so that your body will get used to unconsciously. 


3. Enjoy and celebrate your improvement

Your brain needs some rewards after works. Our brain is neural networks and we should train our brain to remember "if we do habit X, then we could have rewards." So let's celebrate whenever you have progress and share with your close friends or family. Note that there is also a riks that if this rewards is not controllable by yourself, your brain may not work anymore without rewards.
