Habits, again

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Still reading the fascinating habit book! In the appendix, the author talks about how to change habits. Now I understand why it is so hard!!!

Every habit has three parts: a cue that gets you going, the behavior itself, and then the reward. You have to identify the reward. It is very difficult to know exactly what the reward for a specific habit is.

Figuring out the cue is a bit easier.

    This is a good point. I never thought about the fact that there is more to habit than just what you do rather mindlessly.
