In classical conditioning, animals (or humans) are given a cue to perform a task and then rewarded with a treat. Eventually, just the presence of the cue will trigger a response. Whether it’s a habit in budget keeping, exercise, or even dental hygiene, a reward is a mandatory part of the process. good habits produce good results.

We are merely victims of our circumstances. You see, in 2004, when Chuck and I met, we each had a home of our own, each filled with our own stuff.
