本书金句 Key insights

● Our conscious mind can only process between five to nine concepts, or pieces of information, at a time. When people try to change two or three things in their life at the same time, they get stuck. But when they focus on only one thing, the results can be unbelievable.

● Don’t make the mistake of listing a big, complex project as one item. Instead, find smaller and more manageable tasks within the big project that you can add to the list.

● As you start trying to change your habits, you can run into situations where old behaviors might feel like a better option. When this happens, resist the temptation by reminding yourself that this is a normal, temporary phase on the path to a great new lifestyle.

● It’s important to focus more on the process than on results. By paying attention only to results, you won’t learn what needs to be done to get the results you want. When you focus on the process, you’ll learn what works best to reach your goals and what you might need to improve.

● For abnormal people, concerns about uncontrollable things are a waste of time and energy. Instead, they pay attention to what they can control and the parts of their lives they can improve.
