You become what you do.

How and what you become depends on environmental influence so you become who you hang around.

Raise the standard your peers must meet and you’ll raise your expectations of yourself. If your environment is not making you better, change it.

I find this very inspiring. We can be the change we seek by changing our environmental influence.


yes!  i love this: "if your environment is not making you better, change it."

Wow, you found one of the earliest pages on PandaWhale. Context matters. 

Manipulate your environment to make what you should do easy and what you shouldn’t do hard:

You can resist bad habits by avoiding the triggers that make you want to do them. Context is key.

Change your environment so you don’t have to exert self-control. Throw out the donuts. Hide the booze. This has been shown to be very powerful.

Via Habit:

“Whether we’re talking about college students or people in the community, 45% of the behaviors participants listed in their diaries tended to be repeated in the same location almost every day.

If you can make good habits take 20 seconds less time to perform and bad habits 20 seconds longer, you’ll likely see big changes in your behavior.

Adding things to your environment can be a big help too: Reminders to do the right thing (like signs or even text messages) work.

What we think we become.

It's all about inclusion. What we think about, we attract.

Thinking leads to doing.
