    Inspiring. I really liked your tips about building habits. Are you familiar with BJ Fogg? I think what you have to say is very much in line with his research. “Make the right thing easier to do” is an essential key to behavioral change.

      I’m not familiar with BJ Fogg, but I will look him up. It’s definitely true that making the right thing easier to do is the best path to habit formation and long-term improvement.

        He’s famous for advocating establishing the habit of flossing one tooth every day. That approach is based on the theory that if you start with a small thing at make it a habit, it’s extremely easy to scale that small habit up.
