In November of 2012 I decided to join professional network/entrepreneurial brain trust.
The rationale was simple, successful people don’t succeed on their own.
There are two parts to the program:
- Monthly interviews with a wide array of brilliant people, masters and advisors that have helped countless people with productivity, health, psychology, and more
- Membership to an exclusive community of ambitious professionals to hold you accountable, encourage you, and help you live a Rich Life
This brain trust provides access to knowledge, wisdom and proven strategies that top performers use to…
- Get more done
- Stay focused
- Earn more money
Below are my notes/key takeaways from B.J. Fogg, discussing, among other things, how to get out of a rut and find motivation to change:
- Create and test hypothesis in your own life.
- Eliminate barriers to efficiency
- Design for laziness (ex: If there’s a full water bottle on your desk at all times you’ll drink more water)
- Incremental improvements are more reliable and robust for long-term behavior change
- Create tiny habits –> Believe in the baby steps
- Small and flexible > Big and brittle
- Behavior = Motivation –> Ability –> Trigger
- What is your target behavior?
- Figure out who has done it and ask for their recipe
- Leverage patterns and things that have already worked
- People are waiting to be led
- Do hard things now to make future things easy
- Build a system to make it easy even with low motivation
- Help people do what they already want to do
Here are a some additional notes from a webinar Ramit hosted with B.J. on the psychology of persuasion.
If you’re tired of waiting for “some day” to take your life to the next level you can check out the Brain Trust here.
