If you’re a human, you’ve probably failed to make changes that you’ve wanted to make. Why is it so hard to create and maintain sustainable, positive, habits?
By default, we aren’t set up well to optimize our behavior. Behavior change is a skill that must be learned. The good news is that once you understand how behavior works, you’ll see that establishing new habits can actually be easy and fun. No, seriously.
In this 6-week course grounded in cutting-edge research from Dr. BJ Fogg’s trailblazing Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University, you will:
Transform the way you think about behavior
Develop the ability to create or eliminate any habit
Leave with behavior design skills that can be shared with your colleagues, family, and community
Week 1: The Fogg Behavior Model: bring clarity to how behavior truly works, get familiar with the core elements of a habit, and support one another in creating new habits to practice immediately.
Week 2: From Aspiration to Action: uncover what you truly want (More productivity? Less stress? Improved physical health?), and how to use that aspiration as the foundation for selecting new habits.
Week 3: Make it Easy: learn the 5 levers you can pull to make habits easier to do.
Week 4: The Power of Prompt: discover the best places in your life to put your new habits.
Week 5: Untangling Bad Habits: leverage the Fogg Behavior Model to reverse engineer undesirable habits out of your life.
Week 6: Sharing is Caring: now that you’re well on the path to behavior design mastery, you’ll explore ways to infuse this skill set into the workplace or any other area of your life.
