The Alchemist is a delightful fable in which a shepherd named Santiago travels from his home in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure. During his travels, he meets a gypsy woman, a king, and an alchemist who help him along the way. Nobody knows what the treasure is, but throughout Santiago’s journey he learns to listen to his heart.

The “Reward” is one of the three component blocks of a habit, as defined in the book: Cue, Routine, Reward.
-Cue – is what triggers the habitual action (eg.: you get nervous)
-Routine – is the actual habit unfolding (eg.: you start biting your nails)
-Reward – is the satisfaction (sensation, feeling, result, etc., even if unconscious) that you get from going through that Routine, that actually made you repeat it in the first place, before becoming a habit (eg.: your tension drops a bit by unloading a small amount of energy through that gesture).
Have a great day! 🙂
