Why chores and challenges are important
Sow a thought, reap an act, Sow an act, reap a habit, Sow a habit, reap a character, Sow a character, reap a destiny
William Makepeace Thackeray, written in the 19th century
People have noticed the relationship between one’s daily deeds, character and success in life long before Thackeray’s time. There are also clear statements in the scriptures of almost all religions, which reiterate this connection.
... verified by modern neuropsychology
Modern neuropsychology confirms this ancient wisdom by providing scientific proof.
Neuropsychologists claim that all of our actions lead to the creation of neural chains within the brain. The more often a certain action is repeated, the stronger these chains become allowing the brain to use them in the future more easily and actively. Once these neural chains are used a sufficient number of times the related actions become automatic. The result is the formation of new habits.
