The easiest way to build a new habit: no desired strength, encouragement or effort

Combine a little scientific advice and a little practical advice not only to begin, but to keep to anything you always wanted to do.


If you are ever facing a new challenge, it is likely that you witnessed what I call the rip effect of progress: how focusing on one aspect, no matter how small, leads, of course, to improvement in other fields.

Research supports the assumption. Leadership: Google found that managers not only reached the expected productivity levels a month faster than other employees when they talked to new employees on their first day about role and responsibilities, but also managers became better managers.

Of example, doing one thing led to other issues.

The same goes for exercise and diet. Many people naturally start to eat better once they start working regularly. One study found that people who worked 12 weeks (long enough to practice a part of their lifestyle) still liked high-calorie or fatty foods as much, and did not want to eat them as much anymore.

As the researchers say, “Exercises could boost food awards and eating behavioural characteristics linked to overconsumption.” Or maybe I still like ice cream in a non-researcher-speaker… Yet regular exercise by-product–one of my life fields to change–ensures that I won’t want as much as ice cream. I don’t want that much.

What is the reason you need not make drastic changes…

“Atomical habits” is James Clear’s name: a tiny habit that makes a huge difference.

You’d like more books to read, say. An important goal is to read about four pages a day (this is a way to read 50 books this year) rather than set it. Just 4.

Everybody can read four pages a day, but even if you’re gone from your day and are prepared for bed, it’s time to read four page for five minutes.

You can easily stick to four pages— and you can expand on them once you keep the practice. You will be talking more to yourself. You’re going to find yourself reading other things. You are beginning to look for other strategies, tips, helpful advice, etc. You will be even more eager to learn in the pursuit of knowledge.

Of example, doing one thing leads to other things.

So you could piggyback…

Holiday Ryan wanted to contribute to his society more, the author of several great books.

He wanted to be more serviceable… But he did not. But he did not.

David Sedaris then heard that he likes to walk long distances and take trash near his home. It’s part of his routine; Ryan walks every morning. So he began collecting any garbage he saw along the way.

Ryan has already developed his walking routine. He only had to add something little to his “easy” routines, something he wanted to do.

If you always email thank you to your customers, you will receive a reminder calendar to check in a month or two later. Piggyback commends at least one employee on something unforeseen when you have a weekly staff meetings. All you have to do is think about something you do already. (Because nobody ever gets enough credit and no employer ever wants to see their employees doing great things.) And you add something low, but haven’t.

You can get piggyback instead…

The author of several great books, Ryan Holiday, has decided to contribute more to his community.

He decided that he wanted more support… But he did not. But he did not.

Then David Sedaris heard him say that he likes to walk and take trash in the immediate neighbourhood. Its part of Ryan’s routine every morning, Ryan walks. So he began to collect some trash that he saw along the way.

Ryan has already established his walking habits. All he had to do was to add something little to that “base” habits, something he wanted to do.

If you always send thank you to your customers, you should return a calendar memorandum in a month or two later. Piggyback commends at least one employee for something shocking when you have a weekly staff meeting. What you have to be aware of is something you already do… (Because no one gets any lounges and no one boss ever tries hard enough to see their employees doing great things.) Then add something small, but haven’t, you wanted to do.

Combine change with the ribbon impact

In the exercise study, students were not aware of their interest in high-calorie foods. A naturally occurring shift in appetite for less healthy foods occurred without warning.

This is the beauty of the ribbing effect. Trying to improve something and sticking to it inevitably leads to better results, sometimes without a conscious decision-or the will to resolve change resistance.

But by supporting a small change into a established habits you can also make a conscious decision to make further improvements.

Then use the strength of the ribbon and piggybacking changes.

Win – win. Win – win.
