Key Ideas

The Domino Effect

When you make a change to one behavior, it will activate a chain reaction and cause a shift in related behaviors as well. It occurs for 2 reasons:

  • Many of the habits and routines that make up our daily lives are related to one another.
  • It capitalizes on one of the core principles of human behavior: commitment and consistency.
