Each law of behavior change is tied to one stage of Habit Feedback LoopHabit Feedback Loop
[[Habit]] feedback loop is a model of the mental process that allows habits to be formed and maintained.

The habit feedback loop consists of four stages:


, telling us how to optimize this part of the habit cycle to reduce the friction and increase the likelihood that a habit will be formed. Following through with all four laws is critical, as a failure at any stage breaks the habit loop. The four stages and their corresponding laws are:

Each law also has its inverse law, which can be applied to introduce friction into the four stages of undesired habits, helping us break them.
