@Beam626 @cduhigg Totally. But this book has opened up my eyes that we do thinga out of habit, that sometimes we don't realize. Realizing this is powerful.      source

Great dissection and analysis of what creates habits, and the power of changing just one of three steps in the habit loop.      source

This month I finally got to reading The Power of Habit, a book published a few years ago that compiles a bunch of great academic neuroscience and applied psychology research on habit formation. It includes clear reporting and interviewing work by its author, Charles Duhigg, whose day job is reporting for The New York Times. The book uses the now-standard formula of beginning each chapter with an anecdote that’s later substantiated by research, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting (or useful). Plus, the bits detailing Paul O’Neill’s transformation of Alcoa are priceless reading for a CEO trying to build a mission-driven company.      source
