Newton’s first law of motion states that
An object at rest remains at rest, or if in motion, remains in motion at a constant velocity unless acted on by a net external force.
Inertia is a powerful thing. It makes the status quo remain unchanged unless acted upon by a powerful force.
A habit, I believe, is the same, a person’s inertia. Whether the pattern is good or bad is not the point here; that’s for every individual to decide for themselves. You need feedback mechanisms to make yourself aware of these habits. If you choose, the habit is the one you need, fair enough, keep going. But if the feedback alert suggests, that the pattern is not going to return anything useful in the near term or the long run then you need to be determined to change this bad habit.
