Daily routines

The creative lives of massively productive people like John Milton, Charles Dickens, Ludwig Beethoven and Edison follow strict daily routines. (i.e., when they would get up, when they would start work, when they would exercise and when they would relax). Peak productivity’s not about luck. It’s about devotion.[1][2]

Neuroscience, habit formation, tactics/strategies:


How long does it take to establish a new habit:

  • Cognitive psychology research: It takes 66 days for the average person to develop a new habit so it is automatic
  • How are habits formed: Modelling habit formation in the real world†, Phillippa Lally*, Cornelia H. M. van Jaarsveld,Henry W. W. Potts and Jane Wardle, European Journal of Social Psychology, Volume 40, Issue 6, pages 998–1009, October 2010: "The time it took participants to reach 95% of their asymptote of automaticity ranged from 18 to 254 days; indicating considerable variation in how long it takes people to reach their limit of automaticity and highlighting that it can take a very long time. Missing one opportunity to perform the behaviour did not materially affect the habit formation process."[6]

Goal Setting

"How blessed is the man who finds wisdom, And the man who gains understanding. For her profit is better than the profit of silver, And her gain better than fine gold. She is more precious than jewels; And nothing you desire compares with her. Long life is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, And all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who hold her fast." - Solomon, (Proverbs 3:13-18 NASB)

Strategic and tactical thinking

Sun Tzu:

George Washington:

"Washington’s true genius as a military leader was his refusal to give up. He was also very much inclined as a leader to listen to the other military leaders around him. Invariably, he adopted the consensus of opinion reached by his military advisers in making his decisions. Unlike flashier generals, Washington was always able to maintain a steady demeanor and, most importantly, keep his army in being. A lesser general would have risked all for a spectacular but non-decisive victory against the British. As a leader who valued winning the war more than winning individual battles, Washington knew well that time was on his side given the realities of geography and the larger geopolitical situation." - Command and Control, Great Military Leaders from Washington to the 21st Century by Mark R. Polelle

"Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak, and esteem to all." - George Washington
