10 points from the book "The Power of Habit" by Charles Duhigg

  1. Habits are powerful. They can have a profound impact on our lives, both positive and negative.
  2. Habits are not destiny. We can change our habits, even if we’ve been struggling with them for a long time.
  3. Habits work in a three-step loop: cue, routine, reward.
  4. The cue is a trigger that tells our brain to go into automatic mode.
  5. The routine is the behavior itself.
  6. The reward is what makes the habit satisfying.
  7. We can change our habits by changing one part of the loop: the cue, the routine, or the reward.
  8. Willpower is important for changing habits, but it’s not the only thing.
  9. We can strengthen our willpower by practicing small acts of self-control.
  10. Habits are social. They’re influenced by the people around us.
