Most of us start doing something (exercise, writing) in fond of results (skinny, author). But in a matter of time v lose interest and stop working on them .At times v often judge overselves and our methods. All this arises when we doesn't trust the process.
MORE IDEAS FROM Atomic Habits
We all know there r 2 types of habits- good habits and bad ones. We find it very difficult eradicating our bad habits and cultivating good ones.
Let's suppose assume an oak tree. The way it deeply trenches its roots deep down resembles the potential of our bad habit. Not only unless v work hard but also with consistency we'll be able to get rid off it.
A good habit resembles a very beautiful flower which is delicate to handle. Unless we have patience ,hope and with constant work ,we can't cultivate it.
Hence ,to cultivate or eradicate any habit all we need is
Let me ask u a questions
In that case ,this content is for you . Expecting is not bad but expecting smthng to get fast is very bad ,from my personal experience.
We see a lot of videos like lose 7kgs in 7 days all that shit.But practically speaking will you be able to lose 7 kgs in just 7 days ? NO right! Incase if u even lose,u gain that same amount of weight in 7 days again.So what's the point of working out !!!!!
"Large things take large time and all v need is being consistent"
This books does have a lot of inspiration. There's a context -
This is the key of our life and we'll must know it. There r 2 aspects of this context-
This book is such a life saver and you'll guys reading this might say that I'm exaggerating things . I haven't even finished this book yet. But let me ask you 3 things......
- How many of you guys had really pushed yourself to do something , ofcourse not something very serious , something like diet control, weight loss etc
- Did you count how many things you've procrastinated in a day
- Have you ever heard of the term "micro habits"......
Okay now my answers to those questions
2)out of 6 tasks I procrastinate 4 and
3)not before reading the book .
To all the readers of the book Atomic habits ,I exclude you guys bcoz u've already known this term I guess
Micro habits r nothing but small things that bring a lot of difference . Examples maybe like making your bed after wakeup, keeping things in order and place etc etc etc....
Here's the main point i.e that the time consumed for noticing the difference is so longer and longer the duration ,longer is its longitivity ,I guess u got it .
People like me might ask a quiet intriguing question like " Is there any gaurantee that I can embrass the change ? " This question might have araised in many.....
"Complaining about not achieving success despite working hard is like - Complaining an ice cube for not melting when u heated from 25°C to 31°C"
Assume an ice cube on a table in a room at 25°C. It doesn't melt ,now we're increasing the temperature a.d observing the change .26 °C , doesn't melt ,27°C , doesn't melt ,28°C,29°C,30°C and 31°C ,no melting seen . Now we still keep on increasing ,at 32°C ,it's starts melting
That means there's no work done from 26°C - 31°C ? No , there's constant work occuring and all this work is being stored for the huge , great ,final outcome . Hardwork pays off .
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.
