If you enjoy this special episode with BJ and James, listen to their full Bulletproof Radio podcasts:
- Behavior scientist BJ Fogg, Ph.D., founded the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University and is considered the leading scientific authority on habits. His behavior model is easy to learn and easy to apply to everyday life… and doesn’t include willpower. “The thing that wires a habit in is not repetition,” BJ says, “it’s the emotion you feel when you do the behavior.” He explains that behavior happens when three elements come together at the same moment: motivation, ability, and a prompt.
- BJ introduces you to the science behind habit formation in his book, “Tiny Habits: The Small Changes that Change Everything ”
- Writer James Clear researches habits in the context of human potential, continuous improvement and decision-making. “Your habits compound over time as they start to layer on top of each other and increase over time,” James says. “But your decisions—if you imagine your life is like a string of decisions—those decisions can compound for you or against you, too. The benefit of making a single good choice is fine, but the benefit of making a string of good choices can be significantly better. You’re really trying to string those two together.”
- James book, “Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones,” details how habits can shape your life and is a go-to resource for Fortune 500 companies and professional sports teams.
