Author of Atomic Habits, James Clear has an awesome deconstruction of how to install and delete habits.
Installation of Habits
- Put it right in front if you
- Make it very appealing
- Make it super easy to do
- Make it rewarding
Deletion of Habits
- Make it difficult, an absolute mission to reach
- Make it ‘unattractive’
- Make it super hard to do
- Make it ‘unsatisfying’
Here is a way to get 4 ‘A’s re the installation of habits of potential =
ARMS REACH + APPEALING + ACHIEVABLE + AWARD.
Here is a way to get 4 ‘D’s…(a good thing)….re deletion of habits that hold no great potential = DISTANT + DISGUSTING + DIFFICULT + DISSATISFYING.
