Why?

1 09 2008

Why do we build and use all these habits?

 

It is a problem when a habit becomes a barrier for our personal development.

 

The society develops faster and faster and that places us with bigger and bigger demands to ourselves, our skills and our surroundings.

 

The older you get the harder it becomes chaning your habits. Why is that?

We are all Crackheads!

“We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.” - John Dryden

An introduction to the book and why we say that everybody today kind of walks around as crackheads. 

What are habits and where do they come from?

Do you recall brushing your teeth this morning?

Habits are an inseparable part of our personality, actions and thoughts. They are automatic routines of behavior that are repeated regularly without going through a conscious thought process. They just happen without you even noticing that you actually have a choice in the first place.

Try for one moment to think about all the things you do and say throughout the day without even thinking first. Do you remember brushing your teeth this morning? Not that you did it, but actually doing it? I don’t. 

Research shows that 80% of what you do is habitual actions. Imagine, the person you think you are is in many ways the consequence pre-recorded thoughts and actions that control what you do and how you do it.

Think of all the ideas, people, learning, new experiences and business opportunities that go unnoticed every day because you are running on autopilot. Things that are literally stolen from just under your nose.

But how do these pre-recorded behavioral patterns come into being? At what point in time do they start?

Every time we are faced with a new challenge or have to do something we have never done before, we are faced with a conscious choice about how to solve the issue in question. No matter if we are talking about riding a bike, brushing your teeth or how to react the when you’re fired from your work.

How do you react?
