"A wise man rules his habits, a fool obeys them."
Today's Frequently Asked Friday (FAF) poses a classic question: "How can habits help me achieve my goals?" This may be one of the most basic and fundamental concepts of the entire Habit Factor® ecosystem.
First, the subject of habit is often confusing. Most people, sadly, only associate the word habit with negative actions, such as smoking, drinking, biting fingernails, doing drugs, etc.
But habits are a force of energy and an incredibly efficient way to apply your behavior energy to help you move forward toward your goals more quickly and easily.
The Habit Factor teaches us to identify, craft, and implement habits that are essential to our goals. An author develops the habit of writing; a runner develops the habit of running. Someone on a health and fitness quest would craft habits of exercise, eating well, drinking water, etc.
Listen in for more on aligning habits to your goals, how following P.A.R.R. increases habitstrength incrementally over time, and how you can reduce overthinking and better manage your thoughts to direct your energy in a positive direction.
