Most Used Commands

Here is my user commands:
   2476 ls
   1312 git
   1176 cd
    631 emacs
    559 sudo
    465 go
    329 rm
    157 mv
    157 cat
    120 bg

My root wasn't very interesting. The only thing more than 10 was pacman. I
am apparently an avid ls user. I've noticed though that I always 'ls' after
a 'cd'. Perhaps that's a bad habit I should git rid of.
