The phrase "Curiosity Killed the Cat" is one that frequently bothers me whenever I hear it. The idea being to take heed being "too curious" else it might cause you to come to harm.
What is a habit ?
A habit is an internalized principle. A principle is a statement ‘words on paper’ that describe an idea. Internalization of a principle comes by combining knowledge, skills, and attitude. For any principle there is the what to do (knowledge), how to do it (skill), and why/want to do it (attitude). Combining these things allows us to internalize the principle and thus make it a habit.

The role and importance of surveys in everyday life:
Perhaps you can relate, I often find myself getting phone calls, sometimes several a day, asking me to complete some new survey on something.Luckily the people that call me are often polite and considerate of my time.

And why pay hundreds of dollars, when you can get AVG for free?
