Obtain Feedback From Those You Work With

Obtain Feedback From Those You Work With

Behavioral science works most effectively when you have real data.

Incorporate The New Desired Behavior First

Incorporate The New Desired Behavior First

When it comes to building better habits, I think incorporating the new desired behavior first is the key to long-term change.
