Serendipitous events happen to those who ding the Universe.

Love it -- fantastic article!

Habit building is so important ... and so difficult. For me, the key is deciding when to, say, practise guitar. That means literally allocating time slots throughout the week and, whenever possible, sticking to them. This sounds constrictive but it actually frees up the rest of my time -- I don't spend it feeling guilty about not practising my guitar! As you say, discipline is freedom.

For anyone interested in habit building, I'd fully recommend Atomic Habits by James Clear. It changed the way I think about things.
