This is such an important episode to listen to if you want to make a change in 2020. But don’t wait until January 1st! Listen to it before then if you can.

Talking Points:

  • 3 reasons why you can make a change in 2020
  • Temporal landmarks
    • “Setting virtuous goals at the beginning of the year can be quite effective, recent research tells us, since the first day of the year is a temporal landmark. Temporal landmarks signal the start of a new, distinct time period — making us feel we can start from a clean slate. They highlight a contrast between current and future goals (which are often different!) and can thus be a relatively simple way to motivate yourself to accomplish your virtuous goals”
  • The Fresh Start Effect
    • Be more motivated to take action when you feel like you have a clean slate
  • Start now… you are ahead of the game!
    • This lets you gather data on what works and what doesn’t.
  • Don’t tell anyone your goals (unless they are doing it with you)
  • Focus on progress, not perfection.
    • My meditation story.
  • Do a pre-mortem
