“New” brings new energy  


Done often, hence done easily, eventually done automatically  

Habits to free up our limited conscious resources  

Habits stem from Cue/ Response/ Reward  

With time, the brain begins to expect and crave the reward as soon as the cue arises 

Our willpower is limited in capacity and endurance (like a physical muscle). 

Change/ Transformation/ New is what God is all about  

2 Cor. 3:16-18 But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit 

Our hope is not in our will power. Our hope is in God’s power. 

Transformation happens over time  

Power comes from the Holy Spirit  

Romans 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Move your body, in the power of God, to renew your mind  

Keystone habits cascade down to other habits
