BJ Fogg is the founder of the Stanford Behavioral Lab (seen here with The real stars of the show: Monkey & Frog) He’s researching how people make new habits – and his message is fairly simple: Make tiny changes to form new habits. The big life-altering “change-who-you-are-in-two-weeks”-solutions mostly fail anyway. So pick a tiny habit, do it often – and then pick a new one. Connect it to a trigger, and change your environment to help you:
Frog decides to “drink 8 glasses of water a day”
Monkey decides to bring a glass of water to his desk every morning, when he comes into work.
-> Who of the two will drink more water in the long run, you think?
