This ties right in with the 21/90 rule. The 21/90 rule is a common adage among successful entrepreneurs and high-achieving individuals. It states that it takes 21 days to form a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle. This concept has been studied extensively by psychologists, who have found that it generally takes about 66 days for an action or behavior to become automatic.
The 21/90 rule can be applied to almost any area of life, from physical fitness and healthy eating habits to professional development and personal growth. It is a useful tool for setting goals and living a more productive, purposeful life.
