A guide to moving the needle on behaviour change.

It's often said that the one constant in life is change.

And most of us have something that we'd like to move the needle on.

Lose a little weight. Save a little money. Change jobs. Travel more. Stress less. Write more. Communicate better. Be more present with loved ones.

Stop checking our phones 8327 times a day.

Make life a little easier.

And yet, most of the time, we're stuck. Struggling to breakthrough the status quo, the inertia that feels like cement in our shoes. Unable to put the phone away or resist the extra bit of dessert.

  1. Awareness
  2. Alignment
  3. Action
  4. Accountability
