Habits, Mind

Forget big change, start with a tiny habit
BJ Fogg at TEDxFremont

What i loved about this was that when I think about changing a habit, I think about this overwhelming feeling of feeling uncomfortable.  Why?  Because I like to be in my comfort zone.  I like to do what is easy as most of us do.

In order to change, as Brendon Burchard says in “The Charge”, we must be okay with what is not easy.    We must be okay with getting uncomfortable.

BJ Fogg does a great TED Talk on starting with a  tiny habit.    He says that if you pretty much do not overwhelm yourself with big changes that you can create small little habits that will lead you to success.   “What if someone told you to floss only one tooth everyday?” he says.   You would probably floss all of them.

Watch this video.   It is worth the 17 minutes.
