Quotes from the Book
“The Golden Rule of Habit Change: You can’t extinguish a bad habit, you can only change it.”
“If you believe you can change – if you make it a habit – the change becomes real.”
“This is the real power of habit: the insight that your habits are what you choose them to be.”
“There’s a natural instinct embedded in friendship, a sympathy that makes us willing to fight for someone we like when they are treated unjustly.”
“All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits – practical, emotional, and intellectual – systematically organized for our weal or woe, and bearing us irresistibly toward our destiny, whatever the latter may be.”
Every book is beautiful in its own way, to me, this book was an amazing piece of artwork of Charles Duhigg. He did his best at describing how habits drive our lives, how can we reform a habit, how understanding the science of habit changed our way of living. I would definitely recommend this book to you if you haven’t read it. Take Care~
