How to Make Good Habits
"It's easy to decide to change, but harder to make that change feel normal." Trent Hamm gives tips on how to turn good intentions into new good habits.

I want to be in financially good shape. These are strong central desires for my life, and because they’re strong, they trump the other shorter-term desires I have. Third, the things I like or immediately desire are often influenced heavily by what I’ve been doing and thinking about recently."

- It's an all-hands-on-deck moment in the arc of civilization.
- Everyone has a choice: Do you want to try to earn enough money to insulate yourself from the world you're creating— or do you want to make the world a place you don't have to insulate yourself from?
