  • Habitual Recourse:  Defining your life before your habits do

    Have you ever set an intention or goal to make a healthy change, especially around the New Year,  well it may come as no surprise that old habits die hard and unfortunately tend to sneak back up on us.  Whether it has to do with wanting to working out more, eating better, saving money, or even increasing the bottom line in your business and or having deeper relationships with loved ones, it all starts with habits.  Habits shape and form our lives on a daily basis and unfortunately sometimes it is the bad habits that are directing our lives.  Even worse there are many companies that exist today that understand the science gained from fields such as psychology, biology, and neuroscience regarding habit formation and they are using it to sell their products to us; since the 1920’s.  

    The focus of this talk is to explore the science behind how companies exploit us and use those same techniques to create systems that distinguish old habits and help us create and maintain the ones we choose. 

    Course Overview:

  •        How to circumvent the usual mistakes we make when changing habits.
  •         How to use your environment to help shape your new habits.
  •         Learn fundamental practical changes you can make daily that will deliver results.
