BJ Fogg, PhD
I’ve been coaching people in Tiny Habits for about four years now.
Each week people sign up for the 5-day program I offer, and then I guide them in learning and practicing the Tiny Habits method, from Monday to Friday.
Day by day — for over four years — I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t. And this has helped me make the Tiny Habits method even better.
(This daily experience has also shown me how we can improve our teaching Tiny Habits, but I’ll save that for another time.)
I decided to pull together some of the messages people sent me this week. These are habiteers who are in Day 4 of my 5-day session. As you read the notes below, you can probably imagine why it’s fun and rewarding to teach Tiny Habits. Imagine people tell you these things. It downright makes you happier.
(I’m not coaching next week; I’m taking a rare break because my family is celebrating my dad’s 80th birthday. I’ll miss the daily boost I get from sharing Tiny Habits.)
A sample of what people have told me this week:
“I’m also pleasantly surprised at how easy it’s been to nail all three habits.”
“Adopting just three tiny habits is spilling over into other areas of my life. I feel more in control of my circumstances, which in turn makes me so much more relaxed”
“The feedback and process was simple to follow, thank you for your insights!”
“I’m actively looking for excuses to do my habit (putting things away) for that little rush of a “high 5″ that I give myself.”
“I’m most surprised about how much of an impact simple celebrations make. Now I know why some elders in my family are so consistent; they are constantly heard saying, “Praise the Lord!” Thanks BJ!”
“I can see and feel results already from the tiny habits practice”
“Thank you for this course. I’ve realized that I’ve been trying to do way too much and then feeling frustrated and overwhelmed when I don’t succeed right away. This has been very eye opening for me.”
“I feel more accomplished in my tiny habits then I have I’m my whole life!”
“[I’m surprised by] the power of the celebration. The habits that I celebrated more are more automatic.”
“Results this week. More energy and more dancing to the music channel on tv.”
“Your Tiny Habits method works! Even though I have a psychology degree, and know why this works, I’m still surprised that it does.”
