At the very core, I found that the habit of sleeping earlier, meditating, exercising, and yes, even becoming a better investor boils down to one thing:

Being intentional with the process. 

To build towards a habit or a goal, the simplest way to actually be intentional is to start writing down our focus and intention daily. This needs to be extremely honest and something that we’d actually fulfill.  

I like this particular quote from Brendon Burchard (author of High Performance Habits):

“First, it is an intention. Then a behavior. Then a habit. Then a practice. Then a second nature.

Then, it is simply who you are.”

Whatever habits or milestones that you want to achieve, participate in the process with great intent. 

In other words, live intentionally.
