Habits

When we repeat a behavior over and over, our brain forms a habit that grows stronger with every iteration. Eventually that behavior becomes an automatic routine. We often call this process “learning by doing.” This type of learning works for athletes and musicians, but it also works for business people. Professionals in any area can create habits to positively shape their life and career.
