There’s something to be said about knowing something intellectually and knowing it intuitively. Intellectually, for example, I know that I should regularly complete the positive habits that make me feel successful: meditation, exercise, and sleeping enough.
Those things happen in waves. That may or may not be the nature of them, but I suspect it’s something different.
When I know something intuitively, there’s no difference between my knowledge and my actions. I don’t have to rationalize whether I’m going to put on clothes to go to work. I’m just going to do it.
On the path to independence, I’m going to have to change my perception about some of those key habits. My frame of mind and overall well-being will matter now more than ever.
