Today, we're going to break down Habit Hacking & how to create new habits.
Habits are small daily goals that help us achieve day to day objectives
Habits may be the fundamental thing that will help you achieve your goal or that is also destructing your results.
Bad habits are easy to pick up, Smoking is a prime example, easy to pick up, difficult to budge!
Habits need to be "Triggered"
On a daily basis, we perform different tasks
Lets take brushing your teeth as an example
If you have a goal of drinking a pint of water in the morning but you keep forgetting...
Try putting a sticky note by your toothbrush to remind you to drink a pint of water when you get downstairs
What this will do is become a "Trigger"
You will start to resinate brushing your teeth with drinking water. With consistency and triggers, you'll be able to remove the sticky notes and perform these tasks on a daily basis.
Daily tasks that you perform also already have triggers...
Alarm clock wake up -> Trigger
Get in the shower -> Trigger
Brush your teeth -> Trigger
Get dressed -> Trigger
Turn on TV -> Trigger
Grab your keys -> Trigger
When you start to perform these things differently, it feels alien right?
Hence the Triggers!
What Triggers can you put into place to ensure that you create your habits?
