When you think about your day, what percent of it would you guess is being run by or influenced by habits? I bet the percentage is a lot higher than you think! Creating habits is always possible.
You see, so much of our behavior, the thoughts we have, and our emotions are ingrained in us to the point that they run nearly on autopilot. Sometimes these habits move us in the direction we want to go, but sometimes they don’t.
Sometimes, our habits subtly nudge us away from the end goal we have in mind for ourselves, and we may not even realize the impact those small behaviors have on our ultimate outcomes.
It’s often asked, “How long does it take to create a habit?” and the truth is that it can vary from person to person. Research shows that positive habits take a minimum of 21 days to form but bad habits can take 66 days to break. Good habits like forming a morning routine of brushing your teeth can be easy to adjust if, for example, you want to start exercising. The key to forming new habits is to stay consistent. As we build habits, forming a habit loop makes it easier to stick to these new learned behaviors.
Because of this, today, we’re focusing on the compounding power of habits.
Today we’re speaking with Will Moore. Will hit rock bottom in his first year of college when he hit his mom and ended up in jail. Through a turn of events, Will found himself immersed in his first personal development book, and it occurred to him that he wasn’t at all on the path that would lead him to become the type of man he wanted to be.
Through years of studying and experimentation, Will became the success he is today by focusing on the incremental and compounding nature of small, everyday habits in the areas of life that matter most. And he’s sharing that expertise with us today.
In this episode, we talk about:
- What habits are and what they aren’t
- Some common misconceptions about habits
- 5 core areas of your life that you develop habits around and why each one is so important to your ultimate outcome.
Will is the founder of Moore Momentum, and he’s sharing his wisdom and expertise with us in this episode. Dig in, and ask yourself, are you truly on the path that will lead you to become the type of person you want to be? Is your simple habit formation making those habits stick? If not, it’s time to adjust course.
