Break the Cycle, Stop the Insanity
A few days ago I wrote about the power of habits that increase your productivity and now I am suggesting that you break the cycle of habits. But in fact, these two concepts actually go together much better than it might appear at first glance.
Creating new habits is always first about changing old behavior: there is no space for something new when all of the “old” is still intact. But so often we cling to the old and familiar while trying to do something new and different and then we are surprised that we are not able to succeed with the new goal.
