Tiny TweaksTo Prevent Your Past from Sabatoging Your Present

The Way You Do Anything is the Way You Do Everything

The way you do anything is the way you do everything.

Every morning when I shower I shave. Even if I have no plans to leave the house I shave.

It has become an easy habit at this point.

I do this because several weeks I have skipped the shave on Sundays and then forgot on Monday.

This happens because habits take over as soon as you do anything. Your brain is Earth’s most efficient processor and to conserve energy it automates everything. As a result 45% of our daily actions happen automatically.

As neural patterns repeat the habits get even stronger. So if I forget Monday, I’d often forget Tuesday, and the habit grows more powerful.

Keep this in mind next time you do anything.

You have to watch every action closely, because a habit will quickly emerge and next thing you know you look like a member of ZZ top.
