If I didn’t run across this early this morning I wouldn’t believe it. Straight out of Wikipedia under habit psychology…
Habits in the Service of Goals
Goals guide habits most fundamentally by providing the initial outcome-oriented impetus for response repetition. In this sense, habits often are a vestige of past goal pursuit.
How funny is that? “In this sense, habits often are the vestige of past goal pursuit.”
This is precisely what The Habit Factor® app aims to shed light on, only applying the inverse process! If habits are the vestige of a past goal pursuit then they MUST BE A PREREQUISITE to achieve any goal. Simply put, behavioral reverse-engineering at its finest.
If you want to achieve ANY goal, you must first consciously craft the most important, relevant and supporting habits required to attain your goals. By identifying, defining and then daily tracking those habits you create alignment allowing for faster and easier realization of any goal.
Thought that was worth sharing.
