Do you have habits or just commitments?
Hey Product Hunt folks, I am a big fan of Scott H. Young and in one of his articles, he challenges the perspective on habits vs commitments. Habits - spontaneous, triggered by a particular context, low level of conscious effort. Commitment - doesn’t need to come automatically, can require a lot of effort and energy, but you do it because you follow a rule in your head that says you need to do it. Scott says that the difference between habit and commitment, once conscious effort withdraws (or you stop enforcing your rule to do X) commitments tend to be more fragile than habits. I am a follower of routine but I have never asked myself before how many of my commitments I actually managed to turn into habits. I thought of them as habits that I can track. Apparently, they are only commitments. Now I am considering making my commitments into habits as the latest one requires maintenance rather than continuous monitoring to get done. Any thoughts on how you manage to make your commitments into habits? Cheers, Vio For those who want to read the article it's here: https://www.scotthyoung.com/blog...
