Behavior chains

Behavior chains

Creating new habits that stick is easier if we make use of our current routines, instead of trying to fight them.

Use "if-then planning": choose a regular part of your schedule and then build another “link in the chain” by adding a new habit. For example: "If it is lunch time, then I will only eat meat and vegetables.”

These are the specific moments where you find yourself saying, “Screw this, it’s not worth the effort!” 

Excessive fantasizing about results can be extremely harmful when building new habits. The mistake is in what we visualize.

Making repeated choices depletes our mental energy, even if these choices are mundane and pleasant.

In the process of finding a balance between your desire to dream big and your day-to-day activities, create macro quotas.
