When was your last consolidation day?

I love building. I love expansion. I love making new things, doing new things.

But that's only one side of the coin. Expansion is fantastic, but you need to consolidate your gains.

Most of the time, you can consolidate a little bit each day. Clean things up, put things away.

But when's the last time you devoted an entire day to consolidation?

I try to do it at least 3 times a month. It's fantastic.

My New Book: Superhuman by Habit

On Tynan

After many months of being deprioritized due to Sett and other obligations, I've finally finished my new book on habits, Superhuman by Habit. It's available right now on Amazon.

I've been writing for nine years now, and a good portion of that time has been spent focused on self-improvement. How can I get the most out of life? Out of myself? As I've gone down this path, the answers I've found have coalesced around habit building. Get your habits right, and everything else falls into place.

Doing things when they're the most fun and exciting things to do is easy. Those are the gains that everyone gets. Once we move beyond that, we have to rely on willpower. The problem with willpower is that gains are slow and incremental.

Habits, on the other hand, are the mechanism by which we can leverage our willpower. Rather than relying on willpower for everything, we use it only to build new habits. Once a habit is installed, it uses little to no willpower. That's why I called the book Superhuman by Habit-- habits let us expand our capabilities exponentially. Things that were difficult become easy, and stay that way.
