“From the space program, we learn that tremendous power is needed to clear the pull of Earth's gravity. So it is with breaking old habits. Breaking deeply embedded habits such as procrastinating, criticizing, overeating, or laziness involves more than a little wishing and willpower. Often our own resolve is not enough. We need reinforcing relationships–people and programs that hold us accountable and responsible."
-Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
