Sorting out habits

with one comment

I was greatly impressed by the chapter on Habit in William James’s Psychology: The Briefer Course, which discusses the formation, importance, and role of habits. A good habit is a thing to cherish, a bad habit is a burden to be dropped. If you can create a habit that benefits you, you’ve set up a kind of annuity that will keep on giving without your conscious effort—a good habit does the heavy lifting so motivation doesn’t have to.

Which brings us to Habitforge. Take a look at this review by Simon Slangen at MakeUseOf.com. I’m going to use it to try to create a “walking” habit.
