The art and science behind a habit and how it will bring about change in mindset

In this demonstration I am going to facilitate a session which describes both the art and science behind a habit followed by a game. And there will be a debrief on how we can apply this in our real lives through 6 Steps to develop & sustain a habit and bring about change in mindset.

Inspiration: Charles Duhigg is a reporter for The New York Times and author of The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business. He says, every habit has three components.

  1. A cue, which is like a trigger for the behavior to start unfolding.
  2. A routine, which is the habit itself, the behavior, the automatic sort of doing what you do when you do a habit.
  3. And a reward. The reward is how our neurology learns to encode this pattern for the future.

And most of us, when we think about habits, we only focus on the behavior or the routine, isn’t it? But Charles says that it’s the cue and the reward that really determine why a habit unfolds.
