I am looking forward to seeing how this can complement my Anthrocubeology endeavors, which includes Tiny Habits, as well as my exploring behavior-design based environmental, health and safety compliance practices.
This post is a quick share about my choosing to take Fogg’s Change Lessons.
Prior to starting the lesson and part of signing up, I had to declare what behavior I am looking to change. For me – Budgeting. All things finances. Saving. Spending. Investing.
In Fogg’s first lesson, he references the different “paths”, which is a reference to the Fogg’s Behavior Grid. Because of this, I shared in my responses in this first lesson –
Behavior grid … I am excited about this. I have been trying/testing things out with friends/colleagues for my small shifts/workspace cultural shifts efforts with improv + tiny habits.
(a) emphasis on practice, and
(b) incorporating the behavior grid more.
Fogg shares –
Behavior change is a skill. It’s not magic, or luck, or an inherent talent. Just like other skills — playing the piano or speaking a new language — you get better with practice. … You’ve practiced a skill before. Maybe it was dancing, writing, or public speaking. That’s good! What you learned about practice applies directly to practicing behavior change. … You need to build your skills. That’s where practice come in.
– and this is something that I have used as part of designing tiny habits for myself and for colleagues I have supported in their professional and personal development. As an example, the 3-3 Buddy System has a variety of practices associated with accountability, focus, listening, information gathering, and process improvement. And the practices differ for people but get to the same place when we “3-3”.
