Secrets to create habits that stick and results that last.

    Oh oh! I got COVID.

    Oh oh! I got COVID.

    Hey — Dean here!

    So today’s episode is being recorded while I deal with COVID.

    I thought it would be a good episode to share how, or if, my successful body habits are holding up.

    You have heard me say before that I design my habits to work on my worst day vs my best. While this is definitely not my worst day, it’s not my best either.

    I share how my habits are holding up and how luck factors into this journey.

    Enjoy the show and hey — keep being awesome my friend,

    Dean

    —>PS. I’m now posting tweets and threads on twitter about my journey. If you would like to get daily bite-sized tips come follow me on Twitter.

    🤫The Oscar Slap

    🤫The Oscar Slap

    Hey! Dean here. Three quick things.

    One. I changed the name of the Podcast to “The Habit Show” and the newsletter to “Habit Secrets.”

    I quickly explain why in today’s show.

    Two. To help identify my emails in your inbox moving forward, I will be adding the shush emoji 🤫. It’s in reference to habit secrets.

    Three. Today’s show is about the Will Smith Oscar slap.

    But with a twist. That was an unpredictable outcome that no one could foresee.

    I talk about dealing with the unpredictable vs. the unexpected on your journey to building remarkable habits.

    It’s a different take on a hot topic that will help you redefine what failure is and how you can successfully deal with it.

    Enjoy and thank you for your support.

    Keep being awesome 😎,

    Dean 🇨🇦

    Good habits must work on your bad days

    Good habits must work on your bad days

    Aloha!

    Let me start by sharing a mistake I made in this episode. At around the 5:15 mark I said…

    Products are designed to work on our worst days. They are not designed to work on our worst days.

    Unfortunately, that’s an example of how my brain likes to mess with me. Here’s what I wanted to say.

    Products are designed to work on our BEST days. They are not designed to work on our worst days.

    Whew! That feels good to get that out in the open.

    *****

    Here’s the gist to today’s show.

    We should be looking to design good habits that work on our bad days.

    I think of bad days like a pyramid.

    At the bottom are simple things that throw us off like a bad sleep or sleeping in.

    As we creep up the pyramid we see things like someone hijacking our time with something they “think” is urgent.

    Higher up is an argument or disagreement that derails us by throwing us into emotional turmoil.

    At the very top of the pyramid is the worst kind of days possible: dealing with loss and grief.

    That last one is something I have been thinking a lot about lately. I have been very lucky and fortunate that I have not had a lot of that to deal with yet. But I will and I am trying to prepare myself for that.

    In the episode, I talk about that and share a story about why I think good habits are important to dealing with the devastation that comes with loss and grief.

    It’s a good listen with lots of takeaways for you to noodle on as you rethink how you design and adopt habits.

    *****

    Enjoy and thank you for your support.

    Keep being awesome 😎,

    Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

    This episode is about the power of compounding.

    Einstein is often attributed with saying that compound interest is the 8th wonder of the world. (Fun fact: It turns Einstein never said that at all. Go figure!)

    Regardless of who said it, compounding is a profound principle that applies not only to interest, but to habits as well.

    Great achievement is not a result of a 30 day sprint, but rather a lifetime of compounding behaviours, which start with days, then turn into weeks, months, years and decades.

    Today’s show is about the first magical milestone on your journey to compounding essential habits: the first 100 days!

    Enjoy my friend.

    Last week I started doing something I never thought I could do or even wanted to do. I started eating all my calories within a 90-minute window.

    In this podcast, I share how that accidental idea came to be a thing I am presently experimenting with.

    I also share the details of the evolution of this idea. And that’s important. I have been working at getting my eating right for the past decade. Understanding my journey will help you understand how seemingly impossible goals can become reality when you give yourself enough runway.

    Enjoy my friend.
