The only way to learn a new thing is to keep doing it until it becomes old. 🙂
So, why do most people fail to develop new habits?
Well! Beginning to develop a habit is thrilling! After all, you are doing something new; so you feel excitement, hope and optimism. You feel a sense of control on your destiny. You feel important. You feel liberated. You feel creative. You feel powerful. You feel… good.
But then after sometime, the newness goes away. Now, there is hardly any excitement. It’s monotony. It’s drudgery. It’s ritual. It’s repetitive. It’s routinized. And though it is still challenging, the problem is that challenge is not fresh – it’s stale. You feel…not so good.
Yes! People fail to develop new habits, not because it is tough to do so, but because it is boring to do so.
Embrace boredom, embrace change.
