I learn new things everyday. I forget what I don’t put into practice. I read “The Science of Will Power” on Psychology Today (via Lifehacker). The essence of the article is that we will “default” back to our lazy habits.
For example, If I’m trying to lose weight I need to get rid of all of the temptations in my house and get rid of anything that isn’t constructive in my diet. Or if I want to save money I need to make it go automatically, because I’m not disciplined enough to do it by myself.
Now, I need to go back and set up those systems so I can finally get those sexy six pack abs and start serving more people.

I just hope, I wasn’t a lousy teacher and hope I will never be one either. However, its good to know you can even learn from lousy teachers.
