๐Ÿ” Routines and Habits

๐Ÿ” Routines and Habits

A routine is a set of things you do the same way every time because they've worked out for you.

  • for example, you set an alarm for 6:00 every night because that's when you want to wake up

imagine routines as being executed by a smart planner.

  • slow and analytical
  • the planner is aware of the future

Routines can turn into habitsย 

  • a habit feels like you are on autopilot
  • habits are started by triggers. triggers can be time or complex scenarios

imagine habits as a toddler

  • for the toddler, the future doesn't exist
  • it responds to your immediate desires
  • can lead to bad habits
