You only have so many hours in your day. Change a routine, and you can change the way you work.

Time for a quiz.

Agnes wants to start running instead of sleeping in. Her cue is seeing her sneakers next to her bed, her routine is the run, and her reward will be a doughnut for breakfast every day. What should she change about her plan?

Quiz 1 of 1

How should Agnes change the way she's planning to replace a habit?

a
She should choose a new way to motivate herself to get out of bed in the morning.
b
She should choose a reward that takes her deeper into the habit, like new sneakers.
c
She should choose an easier habit to adopt if she wants it to actually succeed.
d
She should change her cue, so that she is more likely to change the routine.

The correct answer is B. 

To fully bring running into her life, Agnes should choose a reward that motivates her to keep up the habit. Doughnuts won't do that.
