When building a habit, the most important thing is continuity and repetition.
It is not about the quality. Not even about the time. It is all about the continuity and repetition.
When you go to the gym, more important than working out for an hour and a half each time, as all fitness magazines suggest, is to work out continuously. In scheduled days again. And again.
I always wanted to work remotely.
When I moved to Oxford, I used to run at 6am to my work. Each day, mostly in dark, I ran along a house where a light was on.
I could not see inside but I saw a room full of bookshelves, a desk, a lamp and a man behind the desk. The man was always writing something.
Every morning, unless I rode my bike, the same view. I wanted to be at his place very much.
