Chapter 6: Motivation is Overrated; Environment Often Matters More

“Environment is the invisible hand that shapes human behavior.”

“Small changes in context can lead to large changes in behavior over time.”

“It is easier to build new habits in a new environment because you are not fighting against old cues.”
