MORE IDEAS FROM Atomic Habits
"Habits do not seem to have a significant impact until you get to a critical threshold and unlock a new level of performance"
"Give your habits a place and a time to live"
"Success comes from daily habits, not from one-time transformations"
"There are four steps to build a new habit: cue, craving, response, and reward"
"To avoid overthinking before doing a task, fill up this sentence: I'll do [behavior] at [hour] in [place]"
"Your habits matter, because they allow you to become the person you want to be"
"The best way to create an implementation intention is to write: When X happens, I'll do Y"
The best way to start a new habit is by Implementation Intention.
It is a plan you make beforehand about when and where to act. That is, how you intend to implement a particular habit.
The format for creating an implementation intension is :
“When situation X arises, I will perform response Y.”
A habit is a routine or behavior that is carried out repeatedly and most of the time automatically.
When you are faced with a problem repeatedly, your brain starts to automate the process of solving it. Your habits are sets of automatic solutions that solve the problems you come across regularly.
Motion makes you feel like you're getting things done. But really, you're just preparing to get something done.
Most of the time we're so focused on figuring out the best approach that we never get around to taking action.
Planning and strategizing are all good things, but they don't produce results.
