We are what we repeatedly do; excellence therefore is not an act but a habit.
Working in the field of psychology for the past 25 years, I have had a front row seat observing my own and other peoples’ habits.
Habits power a large portion of our behaviors. The behaviors we like and the ones we’d like to change. A habit can be defined as a recurrent, often unconscious pattern of behavior that is acquired through frequent repetition. It is this repetition that makes habits the path of least resistance. They become ingrained in our neural pathways, and eventually it becomes more difficult to make a different choice.
