“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle
What one thing, if you did it repeatedly, would make a big difference in your life?
Do you need to ‘repeatedly do’ something, but find it really hard to keep up the repetitions?
Once something becomes ‘a habit’ , it’s easy to keep up the repetitions.
How do we turn something into a habit?
Research in recent years has shown us the most effective strategies to turn an ‘action’ into a ‘habit’
This course will teach you what those strategies are, and help you start creating a habit.

What will you do at this course ?
You will practice creating effective ‘habit plans’ and assessing habit plans for common errors that could derail a new habit.
You will create a mini ‘habit plan ‘ for yourself, to put into practise right away.
During the second and third class you will assess how your ‘habit plan’ worked during the previous week and make any changes necessary to the plan.
You will practise looking for obstacles that could prevent embryo habits from becoming mature.
You will practise making plans to overcome these obstacles.
We will discuss how long it will take for your embryo habit to become fully fledged.
