How to make something a habit?

Do it again. And keep it up. Duh.┬áHere’s the scoop on Zenhabits.

I like the idea of “do it again, no matter how badly”, since it fits with “refine and repeat”. If we decide that we’ll only do something when we can do it well, how would we ever do it well if we’ve never done it before? Do it, then refine and repeat.

By the way, Steven R. Covey, in The Seven Habits of Effective People, defined a habit as “the intersection of knowledge, skill and desire”. That’s a fine definition, but he left out “repetition”.
