The importance of forming a productive habit

There is no doubt that it is important to form a productive habit. Since the enrollment into graduate school, I have often been told stories about successful students. Some professors are said to have been in the habit of writing and publishing at least one paper every year when they were graduate students. Some illustrious students are said to have the habit of reading one paper written in English every day and making a summary of it. One notable professor, it is said, writes an essay of as many as 1,600 words every morning. Having heard such stories time and time again, I am convinced of the importance of forming a productive habit. But you have to get out of bad old habits before you get into a good one. What I want to know now is how to break them. There seems to be no anecdote about it.
