For each habit with a mark in the “A” column, go to your Habit Action List at the end of this section and add a task for improving the habit. If you have several habits in the “A” column, don’t try to improve more than three (3) in one month and only add one at a time at 30-day intervals thereafter. Some people find it helpful to start with the easiest habit to adapt and integrate it with other activities they do regularly. Others find it more helpful to begin with the habits causing the greatest stress or obstacle to their success.
