Building Tiny Habits with BJ Fogg

Sometimes it is easier to work when your cup is full.

When you have done things that you enjoy.

Instead of grinding it out all the time.

BJ Fogg talks about habits. One thing he writes about is that instead of pushing yourself to finish the entire task. You limit yourself to only doing a portion of the task.

That way, you want to complete the task.

You keep limiting yourself, but you keep growing until you allow yourself to complete the task.

That way, you end up having the reinforcement of achievement and also doing something.

You get that little hit of dopamine when you accomplish what you set out to do.

That is what I have been doing with my one improvement a day method.

Everyday, I improve one thing about my environment. Even if it is a small thing, like throwing away one piece of trash. Or finding a space for one item to be organized. Or removing one item that is cluttering up one desk drawer.

Some people will look at that and see the difficulty of it. Some people will look at that and see the opportunity of it.

See the void, but also see the opportunity.
