Breaking bad habits

 

 

What kind of habits do people struggle most with, and what can we do?

In this article I’m going to share three types of habits, and the best strategies to use with each.

A few years ago I wrote a book called The How of Habits, and since then I’ve provided a free “habits inventory” tool on my website that people can fill out to self-assess areas they’d like to improve.

I get the de-identified, aggregate data that indicates what people would most like to get...

The ridiculous reason I became vegan

I never would have imagined I would become vegan, but as someone who is deeply into behaviour change I thought I’d share the reason it happened.

In case you are still a little fuzzy about what a vegan diet entails, it is plant-based without meat, eggs or dairy. I had become vegetarian earlier in the year so eliminating meat wasn’t a significant step. Dairy was. So why did it need to happen?

Recipe culture is ruining business

behaviour change recipe Feb 05, 2020

I have a frosty relationship with cooking. It’s not something I find relaxing. It’s not something I like to spend time on. It’s not something in which I have confidence.

This has meant being bound to recipes. I stick to the process and trust the outcome will be okay.

But there’s a difference between following a recipe and knowing how to cook.

Motivating the unmotivated: The Zorro Technique

 

Most of the techniques I talk about deal with subconscious influences on behaviour; how the time of day impacts who gets out of jail or how music in a shop can change what people buy, for example.

But today I want to help you have conversations with people. In short, how to lead an individual or group through the need to change so they get on board and stop resisting you.

Created in 1919 by American writer Johnston McCulley, Zorro is a fictional character who...
