Summary of the power of habit 

The power of habit, helps you understand why habits are at the core of everything you do how you can change them and what impact that will have on your life your business and society 

you can't possibly call yourself a habit junkie and not know this book it's the book about habits published in 2012 by Pulitzer prize-winning author Charles dewig.

This gem has spent over 120 weeks on the various new york times bestseller lists, the book was sparked by design's fascination with the wit of a u.s army major in Kufa in Iraq 

Who nipped riots in the bud by persuading the small town's mayor to keep food vendors out of large and growing gatherings, when people couldn't fuel their anger and energy with kebabs as they usually did they just left 

Tons of research and eight years later dude published the go-to book about habits 

Number one habits work in three-step loops cue routine reward 

Habits are your brain's way of saving energy so given you spend around six of your 16 waking hours doing things you're not aware of it might be worth understanding what happens here. 

Dewey discovered that at the root of all habits like drinking your coffee every morning lies a simple three-part loop.

The queue is what triggers you to do the habit for example sitting down at your kitchen table to have breakfast every morning at seven a.m the routine is the behaviour you then automatically engage in which for drinking coffee might be to go over to your coffee maker turn it on and press the large cup button.

Your brain's activity only spikes twice during this loop at the beginning to figure out which habit to engage in and at the end when the link between cue and routine is reinforced.

That's how habits are built and the stronger this link gets the harder it becomes to change them but you can still do it.

Number two you can change your habits by substituting just one part of the loop the routine 

Naturally the more often you reinforce a habit the more embedded in your brain it gets in case of the coffee you might crave the second you sit down at your kitchen table and when you can't have it that day because the machine broke you'll probably get very grumpy and by one later at work

The trick to changing a habit then is to switch the routine and leave everything else intact drug calls this the golden rule if you're trying to get off caffeine the tweak is incredibly simple to switch to decaff like my friend replacing rick

 you'll still have the entire experience from a to z but instead of pressing a button you're now pouring hot water over decaf coffee powder and voila you won't miss caffeine for even a single day 

Number three your most important habit is willpower and you can strengthen it over time in three ways 

Not all habits are created equal and say willpower is by far one of the most important ones as it helps us do better in all aspects of life 

Having been to the moon and back in terms of willpower research I don't want to tell you to eat right sleep enough and exercise regularly my friend colin is much better at that instead 

Here are three uncommon ways in which you can grow your total willpower capacity over time 

Do something that requires a lot of discipline for example a tough wake-up regimen or strict diet will make you constantly practice delaying gratification and thus give you more willpower to exert throughout your day

Plan ahead for worst-case scenarios even just thinking about your boss yelling at you before it ever happens will help you not lose your cool when it does 

Preserve your autonomy yesterday I learned that autonomy was a major part of living a passionate life

Today I learned that if you take it away your willpower also goes down the drain when you're assigned tasks by someone else which you must do 

Your willpower muscle tires much quicker focus on improving these important big aspects of your life over minor hacks and you'll develop great self-discipline in the long run.
