Tools 0 Comments

Working with a 14 day program to develop a habit.

Step = Day, but I’m catching up!

Step 1 define the Habit. DONE

Step 2: Shrink the Habit DONE

Step 3: Schedule the Habit DONE

Step 4: Start the Chain DONE

Step 5: Create a Trigger DONE

Step 6: Create a Reward – In process.  I’m not good at rewards. I’m quite indulgent, and tend to say I don’t want anything.  But it is because of the indulgence and impulsivity. Since spell check didn’t like the word impulsivity I looked it up to make sure I wasn’t making up words… 

Impulsivity (or impulsiveness) is a multifactorial construct that involves a tendency to act on a whim, displaying behavior characterized by little or no forethought, reflection, or consideration of the consequences.

Hello Me!

I think I can honestly say success will be its own reward.  Seeing the repeating behavior continue, the chain not break will have to be my reward for now.


Step 7: Set a weekly review – DONE

Step 8: Manipulate Environment – in progress
