Lessons from Atomic Habits that inspired me-
1.The greatest threat to success is not failure but boredom. We get bored with habits because they stop delighting us. The outcome becomes expected. And as our habits become ordinary, we start derailing our progress to seek novelty.
2.The more pride you have in a particular aspect of your identity, the more motivated you will be to maintain the habits associated with it.
3.The ultimate form of intrinsic motivation is when a habit becomes part of your identity. It’s one thing to say I’m the type of person who wants this. It’s something very different to say I’m the type of person who is this.
4.We imitate the habits of three groups in particular: The close. The many. The powerful.
5.When you can’t win by being better, you can win by being different.
6.Your actions reveal how badly you want something. If you keep saying something is a priority but you never act on it, then you don’t really want it. It’s time to have an honest conversation with yourself. Your actions reveal your true motivations.
7.You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.
8.If you want better results, then forget about setting goals. Focus on your system instead.
