The copy-paste rule

Good morning,

How do you make a new, healthy habit really stick? Recent research suggests it’s easier than you think. 

We're all naturally influenced by the people we spend time with. As such, copying the habits of those around you just might be the simplest self-improvement hack around. That’s what Wharton researchers Katy Milkman and Angela Duckworth, authors of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, found out through a series of studies. Replicating healthy habits from the people you’re closest to seems to work better than reading up on random advice and trying to encourage yourself to stay on track. They call it the “copy-paste technique.” 

Read on for more on why one of the easiest, most effective ways to change your life is to simply catch new habits from friends and associates.
