    The course that I'm in right now is very much influenced by Charles Duhigg's work. He's written some really accessible stuff on the neuroscience of habit that we're taking in small chunks and applying to habits that we want to change.

    The habit loop is a really important concept. A habit is never merely the habitual action, it can be broken down into three distinct parts: cue, routine, reward. The basic idea is that once you fully understand the cue and the reward that motivates the routine, you can begin to find ways to change a habit.

    What he seems to have done was open three browsers, paste B.F. Skinner's work on operant conditioning into an English to German translator, then take that German translation and paste it into a German to Arabic translator, and finally, paste the Arabic translation into an Arabic to English translator. In other words, his work is crisp.
