Top 10 Mistakes in Behavior Change…..and some way you can fix them

by KII

1. Relying on willpower for long-term change
    Imagine Willpower doesn’t exist.
    That’s step 1 to a better future.

2. Attempting big leaps instead of baby steps
    Seek tiny successes one after another.

3. Ignoring how environment shapes behaviors
    Change your context & you change your life.

4. Trying to stop old behaviors instead of creating new ones
    Focus on action, not avoidance.

5. Blaming Failures on lack of motivation
    Solution: make the behavior easier to do.

6. Underestimating the power of triggers
    No behavior happens without a trigger.

7. Believing that information leads to action
    We humans aren’t so rational.

8. Focusing on abstract goals more than concrete behaviors
    Abstract: Get in shape
    Concrete: walk 15 min. today

9. Seeking to change a behavior forever, not for a short time.
    A fixed period works better than “forever”

10. Assuming that Behavior change is difficult.
      Behavior change is not so hard when you have the right process.
