In this episode of the Habit Chef Podcast, I'll replay the foundational episode that explains how to ensure you achieve your goals. By implementing your own Daily March, you can prevent both slacking off and burning out.

In this episode, I'm delighted to share a conversation with LIFT App CEO and Co-Founder, Tony Stubblebine.

Listen in, and you’ll learn why behavior design is so important, how BJ Fogg's B=MAT framework can be applied, why New Year's resolutions usually don't work, and what proven steps you can take to make changes that stick.

Science and research, and dozens of interviews have shown us that it's possible and exactly how it works. In this episode, I'll share the ideas from my TEDx talk - why habits are a secret superpower we all have, and how you can use them to automatically achieve your goals. Listen in, and you’ll learn why willpower and motivation are mostly worthless, and what you can use instead, why we make big progress right after we set a goal or resolution, but then fade, how to use "triggers" and design your environment to form habits easily, and how to decide which habits to focus on first.
On today's podcast, I'm thrilled to interview Sarah Peck about a swim adventure that provided hundreds with drinking water, how to navigate the achievement dance, and why understanding what you're feeling could be the key to eating well.
