CO2 #2 Creatures of Habit (via BigThink)
“So here’s the thing to recognize about your bad habit. You cannot eradicate your bad habit. If you just try and say, ‘ I’m going to use willpower to make this behavior go away,’ it’s not going to work. And we know this from study after study. Every scientist who works on habits will tell you, once the neurology of that habit is set; it’s always there in some form or another.”
– Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit: Why We do What We do in Life and Business.
