The Sparring Mind blog offers a plethora of knowledge about maximizing your brain that you just won't find anywhere else. What I really like about this blog is the depth to which they go to in order to provide accurate and informative advice. In this post, they look behind the science of building good habits. While I won't ruin the surprise, one of my favorite excerpts in the following:

The best way to do this is to set what I call “macro goals” and “micro quotas.” Goals should be the big picture items that you wish to someday accomplish. Your quotas on the other hand are the minimum amounts of work that you must get done every single day to make it a reality.

Be sure to take the time and ingest the entire post. It is definitely worth your time.
