How To Change Habit
Habits are formed by doing somethingover and over at least 12 times. After that point the action is set and the habit is formed. The best way to create new habits, or modify an old habit, is to reward yourself. When you take smaller bites and wait to speak until you swallow, take yourself out to eat with friends. They don't need to know why but they will notice a difference in you. When you stop procrastinating and begin to get that large (or small) project don take a quick break and treat yourself with something. Make sure you get back to your prject right away.
Habit formation is just another synonym for character development. Changing habits will change how you see yourself. Rewarding yourself is important because you are worth it.
I kind of do this now. When at work after I tackle a difficult or tedious project I reward myself by taking a few minutes to cruise Facebook to see what everyone is up to. At home, when I finish something I have been putting off I reward myself with watching a recorded television show.
How do you reward yourself when breaking the habit of being too chatty or interrupting conversations? I will have to think about those.
