2. 4-Day Win by Martha Beck
Use this technique when you want to bust though a barrier for building a habit. All I can say is that this one is MAGIC! Trust the process, keep it small, and you ONLY get the reward when you do the 'thing' you said you wanted to do. I found this worksheet to help you map it out. This one, more than almost anything else I've EVER tried, has made it possible for me to create and maintain helpful habits. It has also helped me regain facets of my self-respect and self-reliance I never imagined possible. Magic.
