You probably have no overwhelming motivational urgency to tie your shoe, and you can stop brushing your teeth midway without distress at leaving the habit unfinished. You would not sacrifice your home, your job, your friends, and all that is dear in your life to engage in a shoe-tying habit, even though it is strongly learned and quite automatic.
