... for discovering which habits to change:
MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
Pointing-and-calling is so effective because it raises the level of awareness from a nonconscious habit to a more conscious level.
The more automatic a behavior becomes, the less likely we are to consciously think about it, so one of our greatest challenges in changing habits is maintaining awareness of what we are actually doing.
Changing a behavior always starts with awareness.
Focus on recognizing your habits and acknowledge the cues that trigger them, which makes it easier to discover which habits you should change and respond in a way that benefits you
there aren't good habits and bad habits. There are effective habits ( with positive outcomes) and ineffective habits (with negative outcomes).
It depens on your needs. Just be aware of your behaviors and ask yourself if they are good for you or not.
To create your own Habits Scorecard, start by making a list of your daily habits.
Once you have a full list, look at each behavior, and ask yourself, “Is this a good habit, a bad habit, or a neutral habit?” If it is a good habit, write “+” next to it. If it is a bad habit, write “–”. If it is a neutral habit, write “=”.
The first mistake is never the one that ruins you. It is the spiral of repeated mistakes that follows. Missing one day in keeping a habit is an accident. Missing twice is the start of a new habit.
