David Kelly, Howard, Stanford discussed on Broken Brain with Dhru Purohit

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And so the habits were a flashing one to doing push ups after I peed certain things about how I aid or what? I wouldn't eight eat. Howard noted things I wish I had kept a list actually I, didn't I mean because you don't know that you know ten years later? You can be publishing a book on this. You're just. In some ways out of need. Trying to use what you know about behavior and exploring, how do I change my own behavior? Now that I understand that it's not about the size of the behavior about being consistent, and you can be consistent if it's tiny because you're not susceptible swings motivation. And then just. Doing stuff and know I. One of the classes I'm going to rewind a little bit to the heritage. In the mid nineties, I took a Stanford class with David Kelly, and at the time David, Kelly was running idea, which was a big company, but not the huge companies now, but there's no such thing as design, thinking or the Stanford. D. School out would come later out of David, Kelly and actually one of my classmates. So the thinking. Of just you know you design you. Try stuff you hit rate that was. Some ways David Kelly. Really! Got Me going on that so when I started hacking my baby fifteen years later. that was natural because I had done that another kinds of projects, so it was like okay. Try something it rate iterating rate. Until you find the right design. And that's fundamentally today to the tiny habits method you, you make the best design you design the habit the best you can, and that works you keep going if you don't it, doesn't you? Rate and you it you re design it. You don't blame yourself. You don't say you know black willpower motivation. It's design challenge, and in some ways I really credit David Kelly in the mid nineties of training me in tuning in to the power of design. And jump in and actually even zoom out even further I. WanNa even start off with that was profound back then, but it's still profound today, because there's so many misconceptions that we still all have many that people who are listening to the podcast today, actually probably still believe around habits and change. Can you run through some of the most common misconceptions I feel like we can really. Really, appreciate the behavior model and everything teach tiny habits. When we looked at the common misconceptions that are out there about how to actually create a habit and change in your life. Yeah, kind of do a laundry list and you can stop me, or you can rewind to the ones you want me to d-print one that it's all about motivating yourself. If you just keep yourself motivated. You can change habits to if you can't change your habits then it's your problem that you lacked motivation or you lacked willpower three. Repeat it over and over twenty one days if you just repeated twenty one days or sixty six days, the habit will wire, and so it's a matter of repetition. Next? Just do one habit at a time that you. That's the only way that works next. It's hard to change habits. All of those things are not true. I want to take a couple of them and UNPACK why they're not true, and we'll kind of zoom zoom out with your model in the context of it. So what do we know about why the whole idea of like?.
