Great presentation. Fits very nicely with my AgiliZen approach to designing and changing habits. I’m working on my own version of this to add 10 more to this list. : )
This is NOT a recipe for how to end a compulsive or hard to stop habit like eating sugar, interrupting people, etc. Strategizing how to change unwanted habits is much more complex and custom to the individual.
If you are “neurodiverse” or tend to be impulsive, compulsive or suffer from chronic procrastination, anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc. this information is helpful, but not “everything” you need to know to start a new habit. In particular, learning more about trigger design, self-acknowledgement, and iterative systems design so that you can design your environments to support the changes you want to make is crucial.
