Finding It

Why are some people so awesome and diligent at what they do?

According to a study conducted at the University College of London:

  • You need an average of 66 days to form a habit.
  • Depending on the difficulty and type of the habit, it can take anywhere from 18 to 254+ days for the habit to become automatic.
    • For example, getting into the habit of drinking a glass of water everyday takes about 18 days, but doing 50 situps everyday takes more dedication.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”

— Aristotle
