“All men’s natures are alike. It’s their habits that carry them far apart.” ~Confucius
Today’s Frequently Asked Friday throws it back to the basics when discussing a fundamental part of the Habit Factor‘s methodology: What is Habit Alignment?
At its simplest, Habit Alignment is the realization that identifying the core, recurring behaviors — the positive habits — that support your goal is the quickest way to achieve that goal.
When it comes to goal achievement, The Habit Factor says focus LESS on the To-Do list and focus MORE on the habits that will help you achieve your goal.
Habit Alignment identifies the few, most important behaviors to intentionally craft into habits to support your goal. Want to write a book? What are the habits that will support this goal? (Hint: It’s not just about writing, it’s about overall wellness.)
It’s all reinforced by the process of tracking! PARR: Plan, Act, Record, Reassess.
When you consider habit alignment, the big “a ha moment” is the recognition that our goal requires ENERGY. We are energy. In order to achieve our goal we must use the most efficient form of behavior energy…habit!
Listen in to hear about how Habit is the most efficient use of our behavior energy and how establishing the core, recurring, habits that support our goal will power us toward that goal’s achievement.
