- Keystone habit: The pattern or habit that is at the basis of all the other patterns or habits. If you can change that habit, it will start a chain reaction.
- Habit: The choices that all of us deliberately make at some point, and then stop thinking about but continue doing, often every day.
- Habit reversal training: Breaking bad habits by first identifying the cues that set it in motion, then substituting a competing response.
- Small wins: Minor accomplishments that, if allowed to build, one on the other, can lead to larger achievements.
- “Sticky” songs: Songs that keep listeners from turning the dial. Some songs are sticky because they’re popular and people like them, some songs are sticky even though people hate them.
- Weak ties: The links that connect people who have acquaintances in common and share membership in social networks, but aren’t friends themselves.
- Sleep terrors: This is a kind of habit, the most basic kind of habit, fight or flight. A person experiencing a sleep terror can’t override it with logic or reason.
