Forming habits – from beginners to experts

Beginners – rely on willpower to get things going everyday.

Pros – create a system that makes the action default behavior.

Experts – change their sense of self/identity so the action becomes part of their new identity.

If we want to exercise more, best to just become the kind of person who exercises everyday. Changing our identity change “how we do things” and thus changes our internal culture.

And cultural change is change that sticks.
