Atomic Habits: Build habits in the right way.

  • We try to change the wrong thing.
  • We try to change our habits in the wrong way.

How we try to change the wrong thing also the wrong way

  1. Changing your outcomes: This layer focused on changing your results like lose weight, publishing books. Goals are based on this layer.
  2. Changing your process: This layer focused on changing your habits and systems like set a routine for exercise, meditation. Habits you build bases on this layer.
  3. Changing your identity: This layer is the deepest layer. This layer focus on your beliefs like your self-image, your judgments about yourself, and others. Most of the beliefs, assumptions, and biases you hold are based on this layer.

Outcomes are about what you get. Process are about what you do. Identity is about what you believe.

You have a new goal and new plan, but you haven’t changed who you are.

Behind every system of action are a system of beleifs.

True behaviour changes is identity change.

Conclusion

The more pride you have in a particular aspect of your identity, the more motivated you will be to maintain the habits associated with it.
