I read a Nerd Fitness article  and there is good stuff.

We need to set up our own environment to buid our success.

Do it like superhero, look :

  • Bruce Wayne has his Batcave to create tools to fight crime.

  • Superman has his Fortress of Solitude

  • Tony Stark has his lab and J.A.R.V.I.S for his Iron Man suit.

It’s our turn to create our own headquarter to have success.

Our brain

We’re creature of habits. More we do an activites regularly, more our brain need to use less his energy to do this activity.

Remember when you learned to drive a car, you was very very focus because you had to be attentive to :

  • Check mirrors

  • Hand at 10 and 2

  • Turn on blinker

  • Step on the right pedal

  • Keep head on a swiel and watch out for other cars

When you learn to drive you’re always tired after a session with a car and it’s normal because you create new habits. Now, you know drive, it’s a habit. You don’t think about what you must do when you driving, it’s almost instinctive.

It’s the same things with others activities like brush teeths, make a phone call or ride a bike.

When you do an activities a lot of time, your brain create a new and faster pathway that need less brain energy.

We need to build better habits by decreasing the amount of brain energy needed to do them.

Your decisions, your environement

There is 2 places where you spend the most of time :

  • Your home

  • Your School/work/spaceship

Objects from these environments influence your behaviour. Your brain analyze everytime what is around you and what you do when you see these objects :

  • If you see a vendor machin, your brain will say : « I can buy something to eat ».

  • If you see candy on your desk, you brain will say : « I can eat a lot of sugar »

  • When you see a couch and a big TV, your brain will say : « I can have a lot hours of entertainment here »

Now, look new habits we want to build :

  • If you want run after school/work – You need to avoid to sit on your comfy couch and avoid your rerigerator. The solution is to go straight to your bedroom to put your sport’s clothes and sport’s shoes and you go straight outside. You avoid all the house’s distractions.

  • If you want cook healthy meals – You need to eat befort to go shopping at the supermarket. You need to avoid all fast-foods on the road and go straight to the supermarket. In the supermarket, you buy only what has on the list and you go back straight to home to cook a healthy meal.

  • If you want to stop to check your messages on your email or social media 25 times per day – You need to try and force your brain to say : « I’m focus on the task I’m doing ». This case is the same thing that to type a blog’s article in middle of Disney’s World Park.

Audit your headquarter

There is several exemple of how you can do an audit to your own headquarter to take better decisions.

  • Watch too much TV ?  Cancel your annual subscription tv or cable (you will save a lot of money). Buy an Android TV (Google), Apple TV or Netflix and paid only for the shows you want watch. It’s difficult to watch shitty shows and you can’t change to watch your favorite shows.

  • Lose your time on your computer ?  Block yourself of website you check every 5 minutes (Facebook, etc). I will write an article to increase your productivity with your computer.

  • You want run every morning ? Sleep with your sport’s clothes and your sport’s shoes next to your bed. Put your clock alarm across your bedroom.

  • You want train after school/work ? Prepare you sport bag before you sleep and put your sport bag in front of your front door to don’t forget it. By this way after school/work you will go straight to gym.

  • You play to much to video games ? Unplugged your system. By this way each time you want to play, you have to plug everything and when it’s finished, you unplug everything. Video games are cool but we must not forget the real game of life.

  • Tired to eat junk food ? Throw out all junk foods of your house. Because you know, it’s hard to eat junk foods at 9PM when you have only healty foods.

Note : Don’t make a lot of change at once. Stay focus to build one new habit to delete a bad habit. It’s easier to replace a bad habit by a good habit.

Which new habit you try to build for your headquarter ?
