Power of Habit


Referred to by David Allen in the gtd method.

The idea is that an habit is then you start deciding doing something and after some time you do the thing without making the decision. Your cognition load is reduced and you can focus on the task at hand.

Think about when you brush your teeth. You don’t think about it, you just do it.
