Most of us hardly spend any time understanding how humans work. How we work.

When we want to make changes in our work, life, relationships, health and more, we take on snippets of information and advice. If the information and advice is sound and we act on it, things start to change.

The purpose of this podcast is to expand our understanding of how we work, particularly how our brain works. Making physical changes in our brain will make real changes to life. And the biggest thing we need to understand and work on is our habits.

We are a collection of habits and up to 80% of what we do each day can be down to habits we have formed consciously and unconsciously.

I take a look at the science of why we do what we do and more importantly how to make changes and create habits, routines and systems which will help improves lives.

I also talk to guests who can shed more light on why we do what we do, and other guests who share the challenges they faced and how they made changes.

I am a performance and change coach working with people who want to make changes in their life, work, and future. I focus on helping people build habits, routines, and systems because these are the foundations where change happens.

Jane Ferré ,

An insightful look at habit creation

Over the last couple of years, I have started to become intrigued by habits and the impact that they can have on one’s life. Of course, I said yes when Azzy asked me to be a guest (9 October 2020 - How to Deal With Redundancy) as creating habits were key to me surviving and coming out the other end.
There is something on the podcast for everyone - pick an episode at random, I know there will be something in it that will both inform and entertain.
