Linear economy

Linear economy

A linear economy is a traditional model based on a 'take-make-consume-waste' approach to using resources.

The raw material is made into a product. After the product comes to the end of its life, it is thrown away. If this model is not replaced, the world will reach a point where it will lose the capacity to sustain itself.

Circular economy

Circular economy

The purpose of circular economy is to prevent waste while promoting sustainable economic growth. Manufacturers have to design reusable products. The model follows the production-use-recycling-production cycle.

The circular economy is more profitable and less harmful to the environment. The circular economy needs mostly innovation to promote a much-needed change in society.

Use Triggers to Your Advantage

We often start habits and drop them a few days later. To combat this, you can use triggers to remind you to practice the habit. Examples of triggers:

  • Reading at the same time everyday will prime your brain to automatically trigger itself to begin reading.
  • Leaving your books in places you will easily see is another trigger. If you read books digitally you could pin your tab so it’s always in your visual perspective.

Stop Before You’re Finished

Studies indicate that the Zeigarnik Effect is real. It says you are more likely to recall uncompleted tasks than completed ones.
