This works wonders, and I first learnt about this approach in the Atomic Habits book [0]. I highly recommend it. I can list at least ten good daily habits that I have developed after reading the book, like doing 2 sets of pull-ups every morning, not forgetting to take vitamins, reviewing my Anki decks, reading books (a couple of minutes in bed, kindle), making the bed, so on.

EDIT: just realized that the link that the article links to is the book's author, lol.

Eating good is a habit thing, I found this Art of Manliness episode on habits quite helpful. I plan to read the related book, Atomic Habits by James Clear.

Yes 100%. It's all about building the habits. Dig into James Clear's stuff on the topic. This is a good one to start with. His book Atomic Habits is great and worth picking up.

I recently read Atomic Habits and there was a great chapter in there about people with a strong ability to self discipline. It raised the question: are people who have a strong sense of self discipline, better about architecting their environment for success? The would lead to less distractions and more work towards their intended goal.

It's a great book, highly recommend.

I think the book you're talking about is Atomic Habits by James Clear. I just finished it this month and it's terrific. The story of Japanese Train Conductors stuck out to me as well. Clear also has a terrific blog, which is where many of the content for the book was pulled from.
