📖The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

Duhigg, Charles
  • Habits are unconscious and form even if memory cannot
  • Habits seem to form in basal ganglia
  • Habit loop (p.19) → Habit loop

    • Cue—trigger, when and what habit to use
    • Routine
    • Reward—whether habit worth remembering
  • There are much more habits than we usually think of. Almost every often repeated decision becomes a habit. → Habit is unconscious behavior
  • You can change the habit if you keep cue and reward the same. You can change routine however you like. (p.72) → You can change habit routine as long as you keep cue and reward the same
  • New habits may fail at critical times unless you believe that everything will be fine (p.82-86)
  • Habit cannot be eradicated, only replaced. (p.92)
  • Belief is essential and it’s easier to get it in the group of people (p.93)
  • Willpower is easier to maintain if you plan ahead for adversities.
  • We are responsible for our habits because we know they exist, what they can lead to, and we can try and change them. → We are accountable for our habits
