MORE IDEAS FROM Atomic Habits

Habits do not restrict freedom. They create it.

There are four parts to a habit: Cue, Craving, Response, and Reward. Let’s take a closer look at them:




- Cue - the cue triggers the brain to a certain behavior.




- Craving - this is the motivation behind the habit.




- Response - this is the action to perform.




- Reward - it has two purposes, to satisfy us and to teach us.

“The goal is not to run a marathon, the goal is to become a runner.”

The foundation of every lasting change is identity. You can change your outcomes or your processes; however, if you don’t change your identity, you will eventually come back to your old habits. For example, if you want to stop smoking, and you keep saying, “I’m trying to quit smoking,” it’s the outcome you are trying to change. Lasting change can only come through identity change. In this example, you must start saying, “I’m not a smoker.”

WHY IS IT so easy to repeat bad habits and so hard to form good ones?

It often feels difficult to keep good habits going for more than a few days, even with sincere effort and the occasional burst of motivation.

Habits like exercise, meditation, journaling, and cooking are reasonable for a day or two and then become a hassle.

Changing our habits is challenging for two reasons:

  1. we try to change the wrong thing
  2. we try to change our habits in the wrong way.

Tiny changes make remarkable results
  1. Have you ever imagined what cause the drastic changes in our lives we obviously don't take any drastic bad steps with our life?
  2. We just snoozed the alarm one more time in the morning, we just browsed through Instagram 10mins more every single day 
  3. These 1% changes are not easily noticeable but are far more life-changing than drastic steps 

" If you get 1% better every single day you will end up 37 times better than you present self in a span of a year and if you get worse 1% every single day we will end up reaching nearly 0"
