The Power of Habit

October 6, 2014

Recently I served as a part of the Blogger Team at the Catalyst 2014 Conference. Catalyst gathers excellent speakers to inspire the church.

Charles Duhigg is the Pulitzer Prize winning writer for the New York Times and author of The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, an innovative and powerful new book about change. Here are my notes.

We are in a golden age of understanding how habits work, with an incredibly powerful position to have habits change.

Habits are an interesting mix of reason, science, and faith.

The actions in the brains of rats, when fulfilling a habit is the same as when it sleeps. This is the neurology of a habit.

How many of us have arrived at work and wondered how we arrived? It’s a habit. Your brain lapses into an automatic behavior.
