Habits - Sow a habit, reap a character
Habits are the small decisions & actions that we make every day, accounting for +-40 percent of our behaviours on any given day. Some attributes of Habits are:- ● They do not have an end date or time ● They help us achieve our Goals ● They are often unconscious – which can be good, but sometimes not so good ● They can be used to create or break behaviours In Goalmuse, we provide ‘The Habit Loop’ model, which uses 3 elements:- ● The Cue ● The Routine ● The Reward Link: The Habit Loop Listen to Leo Gura from Actualized.org : Lastly, from a habit guru, Charles Duhigg
Habits are powerful, but delicate. They can emerge outside our consciousness or can be deliberately designed. They often occur without our permission but can be reshaped by fiddling with their parts. They shape our lives far more than we realize—they are so strong, in fact, that they cause our brains to cling to them at the exclusion of all else, including common sense. – Charles Duhigg.
