    108. Why Your Habit Building is Failing

    108. Why Your Habit Building is Failing

    How many times have you told yourself at the start of a new year that you are going to work out more, leave school on time, drink more or any other goal/habit that you have wanted to build? And how many times have you found yourself failing at building those habits? Have you ever wondered why? 


    This week’s episode is the next installment of our mini-series on habit building for the month of January! In the first episode, we share the habits we are trying to build… don’t worry, you will get an update on how it’s going in next week’s episode! In the second episode, we shared tiny changes that give you BIG results and reviewed the book Atomic Habits. In today’s episode, we are getting down and dirty with why your habit building is failing.


    In this episode we share: 


    3 Misconceptions around building habits.

    Instead of asking “How long does habit building take” you should be asking “How many times does it take to build a new habit.”

    Your habits are failing because you do not have the systems in place to help you.

    If you don’t change these current systems and routines, then your habit will fail.

    You have to start small and build easier habits in order to later build more difficult habits.

    107. Tiny Changes That Give You BIG Results!

    107. Tiny Changes That Give You BIG Results!

    We have an exciting episode for you all today! We recently read the book Atomic Habits by James Clear and our minds were blown! This book has been on our radar for some time and what better time to sit down and share our thoughts than at the start of a new year.


    Starting a New Year will prompt many of us to think about resolutions, but we pushed your thinking with our first episode by having you instead focus on building habits. Since then, we have always understood the importance of building effective habits. So when we learned about James Clear’s book Atomic Habits, we knew this would align directly with what we believe. 


    In this episode we are going to share things that resonated with us, our biggest takeaways, and how we are planning to implement tips and strategies moving forward. So grab a drink, go for a walk or put your airpods in while cleaning because this is going to be an episode to remember. 


    In this episode you will:


    Learn the four laws to building habits: Make it obvious, make it attractive, make it easy, make it satisfying. 

    Building habits is about identifying the person you want to become. 

    Improvements are only temporary until they become who you are. 

    Habit formation is the process by which a behavior becomes progressively more automatic through repetition. The more you repeat the more your brain makes this into a habit. 

    “Goals are about the results you want to achieve. Systems are about the processes that lead to those results.”

    SO MUCH MORE!


    GRAB THE BOOK!

Do you!

Love your show. It’s honest, funny, practical, and something I look forward to listening to. Overtime I’ve seen some changes in my behaviors and productivity, organization still eludes me, but working on it- so keep those ideas coming or repeated. Michelle- keep doing you and what is bringing you joy and fulfillment; if you’re joyful, then we get to experience the best of what you want to offer. Bridget- wow a school! Get it!! Cheers to a bright 2022.

life saving

Your suggestion on batching vs task switching changed my life. I’m on my 2nd year of teaching but 1st year in person and I’m a special education teacher who can’t keep up with lesson planning for different small groups. I learned a lot with your podcast and I have tough-loved myself a lot more now. And I’m usually frantic in the morning trying to get things done. Now I batch-photocopy for the month instead of daily. I make anchor charts for the entire week and I make sure I keep them nice so I can use it the next year (already thinking about long-term). I also now set boundaries when it comes to the chitchat with co-workers. Just wanted to say thank you, queens! I’m more purposeful, productive, and have less anxiety.
