Make your Cue obvious…

With enough practice, your brain will learn the cues the forecast specific behaviors without consciously thinking about it. However, as our habits become automatic, we can stop paying attention to our actions and behaviors. As we change our behaviors, we need to always begin with awareness

We need to be aware of our habits before we can change them. 

Pointing-and-Calling system can increase your level of awareness from a non-conscious, automatic habit to a more conscious and aware level by verbalizing your actions.

Habits Scorecard is a simple exercise you can practice to increase awareness of your behavior.
