Event Details

Habit Design is taking the world by storm.

Whether it’s best-selling books, ground-breaking research, or prestigious conferences, it’s clear that this field is quickly gaining momentum.

And for good reason. New research in behavioral science is revolutionizing how we think about success, productivity, and the nature of human performance. It is transforming “self-help” from a hokey, feel-good trend to an objective science.

What could you accomplish if you could program your own behavior? What would you do if you could quickly and easily cement any habit into your daily life, or replace existing bad habits with positive ones?

Write 100 words a day? Exercise every morning? Cook healthy meals every night? These kinds of behaviors are not only healthy, they are the secret ingredient for success in virtually every area of your life.

But any behavior that relies even a little on willpower or motivation is doomed to fail. It’s only a matter of time before your willpower weakens, and your motivation fades.

It’s tempting to look at successful people and see overnight success. What we don’t usually see are the small daily habits that have propelled these people to success through thick and thin.

Real success is not achieved by grand, heroic victories by superhumans. It is built, one small step at a time, through automatic habits that you build into the fabric of your life.

Habit Design will show you exactly how to do that.

In this class, we will:

1. Deconstruct the Habit Loop, the basic model that governs how every habit, good and bad, is created and maintained

2. Outline the most effective strategies and tactics for modifying each component of the Habit Loop - Cue, Behavior, and Reward - and the 3 drivers of habit formation - Mindset, Energy, and Willpower.

3. Examine a curated selection of methods for establishing new habits, drawing from fields like UX Design, Workflow Design, Productivity, Environment Design, Quantified Self, Positive Psychology, Energy Management, Behavioral Science, Mindfulness, Chronobiology, and others.

4. Fill out a Habit Design Template with the strategies and tactics most suited to your individual situation, as a blueprint for creating or modifying any behavior in your life.

Here is a small selection of topics we will cover:

  • Setting schedules instead of goals

  • Circadian and ultradian energy cycles and energy management

  • Methods of strengthening willpower

  • Anchor and keystone habits

  • Tiny habits and small wins (from B.J. Fogg at the Stanford Persuasive Tech Lab)

  • Creating low-stakes habits

  • Identity-based habits

  • Implementation intentions

  • Logarithmic vs. exponential progress, and the pitfalls of each

  • Positive self-talk and visualization

  • Quantified Self methods of tracking and analyzing habit adherence

  • Scope reduction and planning for failure

  • Using peer pressure

  • Designing environments to support habits

  • How to replace bad habits with positive ones

  • And many more...
