Pointing-and-calling is so effective because it raises the level of awareness from a nonconscious habit to a more conscious level.

Atomic Habits
  1. An atomic habit is a regular practice or routine that is not only small and easy to do but is also the source of incredible power; a component of the system of compound growth.
  2. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.
  3. Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you’re willing to stick with them for years.
