How to Build Rock Solid Habits (Part 1)

There’s never been smarter information out there on how to build better, stronger, rock solid habits. In this short video I’m using monkeys, zombies, an egg and a Canadian beaver to share two key insights on how to build a better habit.

Resource list:
– Charles Duhigg, The Power of Habit
– BJ Fogg, Tiny Habits

    Might be nice if you used a white board. Same ideas, but less sheets of paper tossed after five scribbles. Not sure if that will work for this or not, but something to consider.

    Great Video, the fact I did not think “how much longer is this going on” was testament to the fact it delivered it’s message well. In addition to being entertaining it also delivered a great advice. In terms of speech speed – absolutely spot not too fast or too slow.

    I love what you do, Michael! You take multilayered concepts, connect the dots, and present them in an accessible way. I found this video useful and entertaining to unpack the rather complex matter of habit shifting.
