The ability to have a small. It's a small little win smaller changes and you know it's easiest doing to push ups after. Up or waking up by the Maui. Abbott which is saying today is going to be a great day right on the tiny things transform. You maybe in the next when we get back together. We'll talk about how that works and how I know that works. But what essentially happens is even as you feel successful in these tiny things your identity shifts the way you think about yourself changes to be much more positive the way you deal with challenges or opportunities in your life shifts and it doesn't have to be massive changes that get you there. It's these tiny things as long as you feel successful at them that then leads to all these other positive things and that's what the subtitles about the small changes. That change everything. It's the way you process the world where you feel emotions. The way you experienced emotion that I call shine and you do that by displacing one to doing push ups pouring a glass of water. Not by running marathons or You know taking twenty thousand steps every day. Now it's Momentum right when she star you can send you right. That's the whole thing right as a big part of it. It's it's a change in your ability to change your confidence to change and really important that shift in identity that something. I saw research pretty early and I wish little sewage by it. People are changing their identity within five days. Because that's what the program was launched in two thousand eleven five day tiny habits program and I had to look carefully and it's like Yep people are thinking about themselves differently and then that leads to perceiving the world than Acting in the world differently with the much ripple effects is that. Why when you say that will be no. Today's the Mary Abbott. You've named after your friend abode stepping stepping on the floor and saying today's going to be a great day it does it. Does it change the synapses or neurons in your brain to be more positive are what is it now? I think I'll just think you set an intention and or if you're feeling doubtful you at least you open the possibility and you will have a great day so it's just seven words but I'm some of my friends who are really into intentionally that like. Oh you're setting intention it's just exactly right And and that Some of these things Like the practice of celebration. The MAUI habit started as techniques and then we can look back and explain why they work and that's totally a legitimate way to discover stuff. You don't have to do an experiment. In fact it's really hard to do an experiment. The tiny habits method came out of a hacking stuff like. Let's hack the behavioral attack. What the prompt is. Let's hack emotions in worked and then you can explain why later it worked. It didn't start from reading theory on deriving a method. Okay so academics are not going to like me for this but facebook twitter. Google instagram zoom does not start as theories and then they. They started as practical hands on things and we can look at them and say why they work. That's how tiny habits evolved as well. It was like it was a set of techniques that worked it did not get derived from theory and so many people think. Oh we have to read all the theory in them will know how to do the techniques. That's like let's read everything up plants in the world. Then we'll learn great cooking techniques and you can explain those may be conceptually but you actually work with people who know the techniques lead to great dishes. Those start with theory and then try to derive a method from theory. I hope I could. I don't hate me for saying that but that that's how you create things that really work. I mean look at the everything you know things that are really popular. People use did not derive by reading theoretical papers. You're not offending me. Just any academic. Some people will be maybe gave a cat would be upset. Or it's not worth me. Probably though I attrition and where you can actually measure. Physiology is a kind of a different thing. Social Science. Social Science is way harder than Physical Sciences. So she does not get the credit for that. But it's way harder than chemistry astrophysics Radovic.
