An Eight-Step Plan

An Eight-Step Plan

The eight steps in the mini-habit program are:

  • Choose your mini habits and habit plan - Write a list of positive habits you'd like to have
  • Use the why drill on each mini habit - Ask yourself why you want to instill a mini habit into your life, and delve deeply into the answer by asking the question more than once
  • Define your habit cues - Habits are either "time-based" or "activity-based". Identify which cue works for each new mini habit.
  • Create your reward plan - Many habits don't offer immediate rewards. Sculpting your abs, for example, takes time.
