Success: Result or Habit?

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


If you've ever read a self-help book or spent any time scrolling through your phone, it's very likely that you've seen this quote by the philosopher Aristotle on the power of your habits.

However, as easy as it is to understand that your habits are important and that your beliefs, actions, and luck have gotten you the results you currently have, it doesn't tell you which habits you should adopt and how to implement those habits into your life.

Often times principles and ideas are easily understood, but deciphering which habits to adopt and how to adopt them is much more confusing. Just like it's easy to read a book and the mechanics of a push-up, it's much harder to learn and train to do 100 push-ups with impeccable technique.

The purpose of this podcast is for us to discuss our favourite habits that we believe have been responsible for our happiness, joy, and success.

These might not be the right habits for you, but they mean the world to us. More importantly, it is how we installed these habits into our life that we think you can learn from. Just like you, we weren't born a certain way, and change can be hard sometimes.

Here Is What We Covered

  • What is a habit, why is it important, and why have them at all?
  • Cue, Routine, Reward the three components of a habit according to Charles Duhigg and his book "The Power of Habit".
  • Which of our habits we think are the most powerful.
