Gretchen Rubin

“Habit allows us to go from ‘before’ to ‘after,’ to make life easier and better.

1. Denying your habits

Denying your problems in hopes that they’ll disappear over time is a terrible habit. While time does help to ease the pain, deep down, it still hurts because it’s not solved.

Why habits work better than goals
  • Goals rely on things not always under our control like health and emotional stability. Habits are more automated & free up our brain for other things.
  • Goals rely on willpower and self-discipline. Once created, habits don't depend on motivation.
  • Goals have an end-point after which many people abandon that area because they got the reward of success. Habit is a long-term concept.
  • Habit is a lifestyle. Studies have shown our brain can confuse goal setting with achieving those goals, making us complacent.
