Habits will only work if you create a world that makes them easy.
When I lived in Columbus, I knew that I wanted to make a lot of money. So, I took my TV out of my apartment. If I wanted to watch a game, I went to a sports bar. If I wanted a break, I would go to the movies. I changed my environment to help me reach my goals.
