In this episode:

“What wires habit is the feeling of success.” 
 
“You can recognise your own work, and that sense of agency is very empowering. And that ability to solve that yearning that we all have to be seen is incredibly powerful and meaningful. It’s not just a celebration, it’s an act of existence.”  

“Rigidity isn’t the way that you change. You change through flexibility in adjusting, and learning, and adapting.”

Takeaways:

  • Begin by forming the habits you want, and not the ones you think you should have. 
  • The smaller the change the better. Those tiny wins help create positive emotions around change that can help motivate you to keep it up.  
  • “Shine” is the emotion of personal success. 
  • Celebrate each tiny success for three minutes, then pause and reflect on how you feel. 
  • Rehearse your habit and then celebrate the rehearsal to reinforce the habit.
