Habits Sustain Your Goals

Creating habits can be incredibly powerful, as they allow us to automate actions and progress towards our goals without having to constantly exert willpower. According to a study by the University College London, it takes an average of 66 days for a new behavior to become automatic. Once a behavior becomes a habit, it requires less mental effort to maintain, leaving more energy for other tasks.


Another study by Duke University found that habits account for about 40% of our daily behaviors. This means that a significant portion of our lives is on autopilot, and the habits we form can have a huge impact on our overall well-being and success. Habits can also be used to create a positive feedback loop, where small successes lead to more success and motivation to continue the habit.


It’s important to have a clear reason or motivation for why you want to form the habit in the first place.


Creating habits can be incredibly powerful when they support a big vision and are supported by your values.


Here are four things to try:


  1. Create a habit that takes you less than 10 minutes to complete per day
  2. Tell a friend to hold you accountable to the habit
  3. Write it down in a task list you review every morning along with your why. Check it off the next morning.
  4. Create a small reward at the end of the week for getting it done.
