  11. Would that be a MIRACLE?

  12. No, it’s not a miracle… it’s Hero Habits

  13. A Hero Habit makes your day better, your life richer, and(best of all), leads to more good habits.

  14. Hero Habits make YOU a HERO

  15. Here’s why Hero Habits matter

  16. You use habits to get through the day*, so you might as well create good ones. * 40% of what you do every day is done out of habit (Duke University)

  17. Habits free up brain power so you can be more creative, intuitive (even happier.)

  18. You build a Hero Habit with these four questions:

  19. (1) what’s the problem? “I leave things to the last minute. And it gets me in trouble.” (write that down)

  20. (2) Why do I do it? “I do it because I think somehow I’ll avoid the hard work.”

  21. (3) What will I do instead? 1) break big projects into 20 minutes chunks, 2) block time on my calendar, 3) use my 20 minute blocks to only work on one project (like I am right now)

  22. (4) What’s the reward? “I’ll feel relief to get the work done. Plus, I get to cross it off my list.” Great! Now follow your plan.

  23. Sounds like advice your Mom would give? Well it works (so get over yourself)!

  24. WARNING: Don’t overthink this. Sure we have global warming, an oil crisis, and movie stars splitting up. Meanwhile, you’ve got a life to live. So, pull up your shorts, create Hero Habits and make life awesome.

  25. Wait! Before we go on.

  27. Some famous people and their habits…

  28. Stephen King always writes 10 pages a day (even on holidays) “If you cannot find the time for that, you can't expect to become a good writer.”

  29. Jack Dorsey* has a specific focus for each day of the week (Monday is management, Tuesday is products, Wednesday is marketing, etc.) *(co-founder Twitter and Square)

  30. Elon Musk* gets a lot of his big ideas during long showers or late at night pacing around the house. *Tesla Motors, SolarCity, SpaceX

  31. Jerry Seinfeld puts a big X on his calendar every day he writes new material. “After a few days you'll have a chain. Your only job is to not break the chain.”
