Habits are good when you are getting the result you want. I think that bears repeating
habits are GOOD when
the results you want.
Good habits get you to where you want to go without expending brain power. The marks on the road that help you stay on the pavement.
That (hopefully) leaves you with extra brain power to spend on areas that need it:
Listening while in conversations
Creating deal strategy
Long term planning
Actively working on the things that are different every time we do them. Giving us the mental capacity for creativity, problem solving, etc.
