Habit Checklist

Reading – The Power of Habit – Charles Duhigg

Habit checklist: routine/reward

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.
