As my swimming experience testifies, habits can be deliberately planned and developed. So there must be something magic about repeated actions:
When an action is repeated, we no long think about it consciously; instead, we internalize it and code it into the brain as our second nature.
Here is my next planned habit: WRITING. Just as I did with swimming, set a fixed time, do it every day, make it a routine. I will check out three weeks later.
