"We first make our habits then our habits make us." John Dryden

Not much has changed in the 400-odd years since English poet John Dryden was born. Habits back then were as central to who we become as they are today and as they always will be. James Clear, author of Atomic Habits says: "habits are the compound interest of self improvement". We don't necessarily see the benefits of habits straight away but over time they compound exponentially, assuming we keep them going. Sadly many of us give up just before we reach the point of breakthrough, frustrated that we are not getting more results. The poster-child for giving up too soon is Ronald Wayne. Who you might ask? Exactly. Wayne was the third co-founder of Apple owning 10% of the company that would now be worth over $60b. He couldn’t handle the other founders and sold his share for $800. So what habits will you make in 2021 and more importantly how will you make sure you keep them? For more on this topic please read here.
