"If I gave you $1,000 to track 3 habits for one day could you do it? Everyone knows that they could!" Martin recaps seven notable and common mistakes people make when trying to develop new habits. #1) They forget IT'S A PROCESS! Unfortunately, many believe habit tracking is an ALL or nothing proposition! "It doesn't matter if you've failed 163 times, you are experimenting—keep trying!" #2) They simply put a dot next to the habit and move on! When it comes to habit tracking, do NOT do what 99% of habit trackers recommend...simply put a dot and move on. Don't do that! Search: "P.A.R.R....

Habits 2 Goals: The Habit Factor® Podcast with Martin Grunburg

"Habits and goals, by design, complement each other."   Oh, the irony. When The Habit Factor® was published in 2010, the idea of using habits to achieve goals as a process for goal achievement was unheard of. The Habit Factor's subtitle demonstrates its originality at the time: An Innovative Method to Align Habits with Goals to Achieve Success. Due to its predominantly negative connotation, all of the prior goal achievement best practices excluded habit entirely. Processes like S.M.A.R.T. goals did not mention habits. Even scientific research papers that studied the relationship...

Habits 2 Goals: The Habit Factor® Podcast with Martin Grunburg

"Everything is difficult before it is easy." ~Thomas Fuller Resistance comes in many forms. The wind is a terrific example. It turns out that without any wind trees cannot grow strong and will topple over. The same is observed in our life. If we are without resistance—if there is no pressure—how can we grow stronger? Pursing goals and ideals provides ample resistance to grow, learn and become stronger. Lifting weights, as an example, proves resistance makes us stronger. The wind offers other clues. MG happens to notice that even boats lying at anchor, FACE THE WIND. This is analogous...

"Remember, it's rarely either/or; it's BOTH!"

This Frequently Asked Fridays episode comes on the heels of our "What Are Your Favorite Self-Help Quotes?" episode. 

This week, we go the opposite direction: "What are the worst self-help cliches?" Some of these platitudes are regurgitated so much they are actually painful to hear, misunderstood and detrimental to our well-being.

The problem is, our life views don't have to be an either-or situation. Don't get caught up in a train or tract of thinking that may trap you!

Listen in to hear the top three worst self-help cliches and why they are both true and missing some key ingredients -- and how they fall victim to dichotomous thinking. 

Enjoy the episode!
