Week 1. Starting with Gratitude
Usually, people are inspired to change their lives because of situations that are wrong, depressing, and distressing occurring around them. But nothing is done without hope, so we start by turning despair into hope and understanding the fundamental power of changing one thing to change the world.
Week 2: Implementation Intention
In this session, we discuss how to turn your intention to change into a solid plan. Just hoping to change is not enough. We need to translate your desire to change into an action plan. In this session, we will discuss the three critical components of a successful plan, and we will help you work through them for your chosen intention.
Week 3: Better Ways to Track Success
Tracking is critical to success. This session will cover ways of easily and powerfully tracking your progress. We will introduce our proprietary method so that we can track our progress both individual and together.
Week 4: Tips and Tricks
This week covers some tips and tricks of how to improve your success rate.
Week 5: Building Awareness of What’s Holding You Back
We are all part of a system of behaviors that we engage in that determine how we spend our precious time, motivation, and commitment. We will discuss how to identify drains on our system and remove them.
Week 6: How to Effectively Use Support Groups
A key part of your plan is getting support from peers, friends, co-workers, and even fellow travelers on the journey. We’ll cover how to identify and set up your support system.
Week 7: Rewarding Yourself
Positive reinforcement is critical. We don’t do things that don’t payoff. But what makes it difficult is that some activities don’t pay off for a while into the future. We’ll learn how to set up smaller, more immediate payoffs that subconsciously build and strengthen your motivation.
Week 8: Creating the Right Triggers
We each have a daily limit to our willpower and motivation. Learn to shape your environment to make it easier to get the stuff you want to do done.
Week 9: Avoiding the Wrong Triggers
There is a way to break unwanted habits. We’ll cover how you do it. We’ll take the list from previous work and apply the method to one of the items.
Week 10: Simplifying Your Life
This week is a deeper dive into how to make it all easier to get what you want to do done. We’ll talk about simplifying decision-making using guidance used by Jeff Bezos and the Two-Minute Rule.
Week 11: Stacking Positive Behaviors
Now that you have mastered changing one behavior, we’ll talk about how to build on that foundation by stacking additional behaviors that you want to change.
Week 12: Celebrating and Sustaining
In this final week, we share stories and celebrate success. We’ll make plans on how to sustain the change going forward.
