    • PART ONE: THE HABITS OF INDIVIDUALSCHAPTER 1: THE HABIT LOOP – HOW HABITS WORK
    • Your habits and your memory are separate. When youperform a task from your memory your mind is activelysearching for what to do next and you are a consciousparticipant.However, when it becomes a habit, your brain becomesalmost inactive so it can focus on other things while atthe same time it triggers a routine to take over onauto-pilot.In the full version of this book, The Power of Habit:Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, theauthor shares an interesting story about a man whohad an illness that completely wiped out his short-termmemory. He cannot tell you where the front door iswhile inside his house, nor can he even remember howhe got into the room that he is in.What is interesting is the fact that even with nomemory whatsoever he is still performing tasks helearned before the illness and has the ability to learnnew ones – although he has no recollection of it.When this man was asked where the restroom was hehad no idea. But when the urge arises, almostrobotically, the man gets up, walks to the restroom,relieves himself, washes his hands then returns to hisseat.Habits are formed in the tissue in the center of thebrain known as the basal ganglia. When you arestarting a new action for the first time this area of the
    • brain is extremely active looking, searching,memorizing, taking notes and studying everything itcan.Once you have repeated this action over and over againthe brain activity slows down and it begins to runautomatically.The brain will notice a pattern, recall the previousexperiences and send a signal to follow the routinewithout much thought at all.Our brains our constantly looking for ways to makethings simpler for us so that we can use our activity tofocus on other things. Although it is ultimately tryingto save us energy and mental activity – like having tothink about how to tie your shoes every single morning– it can also create not so good routines – like grabbinga doughnut every time you pass a bakery.The “Habit Loop” is composed of three basic functions.First, your brain recognizes some sort of familiar signalor “cue” that it is time to start a routine and go intoauto-pilot. Once it does it starts the habit process orthe “routine”. The third component to the habit loop isthe “reward” or the end result that you are workingtowards. The reward is the most important element.We enjoy the rewards we receive. In essence, the brainworks backwards. Once we get that rush of goodfeelings from whatever reward we just received,whether it be physical, emotional or mental, the basal
    • ganglia goes back to see what we did to cause it thenremembers it. Next time, all we need is the familiarcue and it will trigger the routine to get us back to thatsame result.Knowing the structure of how habits function is whatwill give you the skill to be able to change and reshapethem. If you do not make a conscious effort to changea habit it will unfold automatically without anyparticipation needed from you. You do not even needto be consciously aware of how the habit started, thereward you are getting or what is triggering it for it tostill run its course over and over again.Your cue could be any sight, sound, smell, emotion,time of day, type of weather, being around a certainperson, your pet or even passing by your favoritegrocery store.Your reward could be a new car, better job, sympathy,a sense of satisfaction, or any other range of emotionalor physical items.
    • CHAPTER 2: THE CRAVING BRAIN – HOW TO CREATE NEW HABITS
    • You can begin the process of creating, growing andmanaging your own habits with two simple steps. 1. Find your cue. Make it something easily identified and as simple as possible. 2. Premeditate your reward. Plan and spell out ahead of time what will be your benefit.These two things together is what you will use as thebasis for uncovering the new habits you desire.But it does not stop there.In order to make a habit stick you need to develop acraving for the reward. It has to be something thatcauses your mind to already anticipate the reward theinstant you get your cue.In order to change an existing habit you must identifythe reward that is driving the habit, then change theroutine that gets you there.How deep you develop your craving for the reward isdirectly proportionate to how strong your habit loop willbe.Conversely, when you get your cue and you do not getthe reward that was associated with it you can becomedepressed, angry and have a wide range of emotionsfrom disappointment to frustration.That is why some people have trouble sticking to newworkout routines. Their cue to start the routine may nothave been clearly defined or the reward itself was
    • anticipated weight loss. If at the end of a couple ofdays the person does not see the expected drop inweight then there is no reward associated to theroutine. With there being no reward to crave a habit isnever formed.On the other hand, if you happen to love smoothiesyour routine has a greater chance of becoming a habitif you reward yourself with a delicious shake after eachworkout.These strong cravings for the reward is how addictionsare usually formed. Our brain does not know thedifference between a good habit or a bad one.But once you can identify the craving that is driving anexisting habit you can begin to change it. Or if youwant to create a new habit, design it with your specificreward in mind.You can manufacture your cravings in order to help anew habit stick. Visualize the reward ahead of time.Really get a sense of how great it will be to get yourreward at the end. Anticipate it. Long for it. Andeventually... Crave it! Once you do you will find thatnothing will stop you from getting it and the routine willbecome automatic and effortless.
