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. More specifically, you'll learn where the concept of a 20-Mile March came from, why you should apply it daily, how to determine what to include in your daily march, and how to use tiny habits to make those choices automatic.
In this episode, I'm delighted to share a conversation with LIFT App CEO and Co-Founder, Tony Stubblebine. He'll share powerful insights on behavior design and how you can apply those principles in your own life. In particular, Tony explains the science behind why resolutions don't last, and where you can focus instead that will have a lasting impact. You'll hear how Tony and his team have masterfully taken the best research concepts and applied them to science and technology to create a resource that is simply life-changing. 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.
In today's episode, we'll explore why being weird is so important. It's the second part of a series that will walk you through how to have a new life in the new year. Last week, we shared why habits are more effective than goals or resolutions. And next week, we'll interview Tony Stubblebine about why the Lift app is your perfect partner for starting 2014 off right. Listen in, and you’ll learn why you can't be normal, why those you admire have quirks (or are downright weird), why you'll need some weird habits too, and which ones to pick.
Today, we're starting a series that will walk you through how to have a new life in the new year. 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. "Deciding is powerful. It is terrifying. It is beautiful. Kill something today. Cut it out. Drop it. Remove it. Make clarity in choosing, by saying No to the part you don’t want. Say Yes to the things you want to keep. Do something. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin now.”
On today's podcast, I'm honored to interview Kamal Ravikant. He's the author of two awesome books - Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It and Live Your Truth. What's awesome about Kamal's writing is that he's vulnerable and authentic enough to share some really raw and profound truths that I think lots of us need to hear. "We don't stumble accidentally into an amazing life. It takes a conscious commitment to figuring out what we stand for - finding our truth. It begins by looking inside ourselves, because when it rises from within, we have no choice but to express it, to live it. That is when magic happens."
Should we strengthen our brains like we do our bodies? Absolutely. The problem is that we're rarely taught how. And what we hear about sometimes sounds weird or even embarrassing. But it's incredibly important. As Christopher Paolini says, "the monsters of the mind are far worse than those that actually exist. Fear, doubt, and hate have hamstrung more people than beasts ever have." In this episode of the Habit Chef Podcast, we'll explore four positive habits we can develop for strengthening our minds and fighting stress. Listen in, and you’ll learn what people who are mentally strong don't do, how to prevent yourself from doing them, why daily exercise is the next blockbuster drug, how to program yourself to think differently, how to quiet your mind, and what you should do for 20 minutes each day.
Have you ever been thrown off track by something you thought would be positive? I've certainly experienced that over the last couple of months. An opening in the leadership position at Port Royal caused me to rethink the trajectory of my role. After some evaluation, I decided to submit a plan to fill the gap and provide leadership for the next few years. An intensive interview processed ensued, and I was selected. Then the virtual can of worms exploded ... Combining the inherent intensity of a leadership transition with an annual owners' meeting and unexpected turnover in a key position led to weeks of feeling like I was being tossed by the waves and barely keeping my head above water. Eventually, we got enough key people and processes in place, and the intensity began to subside. Only then did I begin to make sense of what I'd experienced, how I should learn from it, and what I could share with you. In this episode of the Habit Chef Podcast, we'll uncover a surprising source of disruption and how to prevent it from derailing your progress.
