Reading – The Power of Habit – Charles Duhigg
Habit checklist: routine/reward
Starting the day is the most important. The things we get done before breakfast are the most likely to happen consistently.
Create a checklist to be filled out at breakfast
For a completed checklist a reward is given with the meal
Make sure to provide the reward consistently until the habit is established. But once established a natural reward is already in place: Breakfast
The artificial reward amplifies breakfast initially, providing extra motivation until the routine is established.
