Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“How can I implement x?”

Before you start looking for answers, get clear on what the question means, and optimize it.

What does it mean to implement something?”

“To turn it into a habit.”

“Then the question becomes:

How can I turn this into a habit?

This already suggests a course of action.

The principle here is specificity.

Get clear on what you’re trying to accomplish, and how.

What does the habit look like? When do you want to engage in it, how often, for how long?

Then follow up with:

How can I make it actionable? What specific action-steps can I take to get started?”
