What is a Habit?
Something that is done regularly and subconsciously is called a Habit.
You feel thirsty, and drink water. After some period of time, this activity becomes automatic, meaning you don’t have to think, whether to do or not to do. This forms a Habit. Then drinking water becomes a Habit.
You wake up everyday drink water, brush teeth, take bath, eat food, and go to sleep. To accomplish all these, you don’t think. These are Habits.
Jim Ryun on Habits
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Charles Noble on Habits
First we make our habits, then our habits make us.
Aristotle on Habits
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Confucius on Habits
Men’s natures are alike; it is their habits that separate them.
Samuel Johnson on Habits
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt, until they are too strong to be broken.
Warren Buffett on Habits
I insist on a lot of time being spent, almost every day, to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business.
I read and think. So I do more reading and thinking, and make less impulse decisions than most people in business. I do it because I like this kind of life.
Moral of the Story
Habits are nothing but things that you do regularly without thinking.
