How do you get rid of a bad habit in your behaviour system?

By Carol Yip

To delete, get rid of or remove a word, file, software or programme inside a computer, you need to press the “Delete” key on the keyboard.

Unfortunately, there is no “Delete” function in your brain. Based on psychological studies, to delete or get rid of a thought, emotion or an experience, you will need to “create” an event or action that can bring in new emotion and thought to “overcome” the existing emotion or thought that was first stored in your brain.

By Tan Yen Fong

Kuok believed the most important word in life is 奋斗 (strive).

However, our father insisted we study Chinese, particularly, Mandarin, not Cantonese. At that time, the only Chinese school in Hong Kong was at North Point, which was about a 20-minute drive away and we finished our elementary education there. I must say we did whine about it as Mandarin is not as easy as English. There was a lot of homework. But now, we are thankful to our father for insisting we learn Mandarin.”
