The Trickle-Down Effect Of Your Habits
The Trickle-Down Effect is the idea that every habit – good or bad – affects every other habit. Patterns get created whether we want to or not. It’s up to us to find them and make them better.
I'm a writer, blogger, data enthusiast, programmer, and self-taught graphics guy. Above all though, I'm a self-improvement junkie.

My imposter syndrome destroyed my self-esteem. It was then that I found the best advice on a random Youtube commment: earn it backwards. At 19-years-old, overwhelmed, I decided to configure my life for the long-game. Over the past few years, I've built habits and systems, learned how to learn and think better, become fitter both physically and mentally, built a better lifestyle, and grown as a person.
With Nudge › How, I'm sharing all of that and more as I learn further. Let's grow towards a balanced life, together!
Every Wednesday, I send the free newsletter titled Midweek Nudge. The idea of Midweek Nudge is to introduce concepts I come across or think of or even realisations that nudge me into a better direction. I share them for everyone to see.
I recommend signing up, if your goal in life is balance. It's the most thoughtful newsletter on the internet. This is the most value-rich content I create all week!
I'm also continuously posting different kinds of content on the social media channels: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
You'll also get a blog post every week on Saturday. Consider subscribing above to get the newsletter, check out the Schedule or keep scrolling for the recent blog posts!
