Research has shown that it takes 31 days of conscious effort to make or break a habit. That means, if one practices something consistently for 31 days, on the 32nd day it does become a habit. Information has been internalised into behavioural change, which is called transformation. — Shiv Khera
31 days? I’m in! Where do we begin?
That’s what this post is all about.
I’m working on the ESD podcast as well as the ESD audiobook. Here’s the hot-off-the-press recording of the Preface from “Every Single Day.” Enjoy!
Here’s a little clip from the Preface.
In this book, you’ll learn about patience and perseverance and how I spent 26 years slogging away avoiding living my dream. Ouch. Painful. Yuck. Heavy. Boring.
But the actual “transformation” part? Yeah, that probably took a few seconds.
I transformed myself when I made the decision to change my behavior.
It took more than two decades to ponder and wish, hope and delay, pretend, and defer. Then a few mere moments to crush it all with a simple decision to change a single daily behavior–and stick with that new behavior.
That about sums up this book.
If you’d like the whole thing, it’s all right here. Thanks for stopping by!
