Perhaps you wanted to take up a new hobby. You might have tried to re-orient your career in order to make a bigger contribution to the world. You might be one of the millions of people who want to get fit, lose weight, or stop smoking. You have discovered for yourself that changing your behavior is hard. Habits are the Key Driver of Your Daily Performance ： If you’re reading this site, then chances are you feel there is something that is holding you back from reaching your full potential. You might feel like you procrastinate too much, that you hesitate too long to get involved in new ventures, or that spend too much time flitting from project to project without putting in sustained output. Although you might be aware of the problem, you might not know why these problems arise. That is because your habits are the key driver of your daily performance, and you have little insight into the basis of your own habits. What you may not realize is that behavior change is hard because your brain is exquisitely organized to help you achieve your goals. That means that if you want to change your behavior, you have to fight against your brain to develop new habits. If you want to win that fight, you should come armed with knowledge about the way your brain helps you to achieve your goals. Smart Change explores the psychological mechanisms that form and maintain habits in individuals and groups and offers real, accessible and actionable advice for changing habits. In an engaging narrative, Markman covers a wide range of habits, from individual behaviors like eating better and exercising regularly to work-related behaviors such as learning effectively and influencing customers’ purchases. That is where Smart Change: Five Tools to Create Sustainable Habits in Yourself and Others comes in. The book starts by exploring the research that has illuminated the way your motivational system works. Your motivational system is that set of brain mechanisms that helps you to achieve your goals. This system takes your goals and uses one set of brain mechanisms that drives your behavior (called the Go System) and a second set of mechanisms that tries to prevent you from giving in to your temptations (called the Stop System) to allow you to navigate your daily life. Then, the book identifies five pressure points that you can use to help you change your behavior. He proposes that there are five effective tools to help individuals change behavior and to help people influence the habits of the people around them: 1. Tame the “Go” system: Identify the triggers of habits, replace old behaviors with new ones and generate specific plans to deal with obstacles. 2. Harness the “Stop” system: Learn to deal with stress and other factors that hinder the development of new and positive habits. 3. Optimize your goals. Determine the course of behavior change and how to successfully incorporate those changes for the long term. 4. Manage your environment: Change your surroundings to dramatically reduce poor behavior and habits. 5. Engage your Neighbors: To affect other people’s behavior, understand the shared culture that creates a mutual dependency, and allows neighbors and colleagues to have a profound positive influence on the behavior of other members of their community. Of course, the behaviors you have developed were not build in a day, and you will not change them overnight. It will take a lot of work. To help you along the way, Smart Change introduces you to your Smart Change Journal, which you can use to help yourself to prepare for the changes you want to make in your life. The book will guide you through the process. The same principles that you use to change your own behavior can also be used to help other people to change their behavior. Smart Change also explores how to take the tools of behavior change and use them to influence the people around you. 6 Ways You Can Use Smart Change ： Here are six things you can do to engage in Smart Change to promote great success. 1. Learn About Yourself Before trying to change your behavior, you need to understand it. Keep a habit diary. Spend two weeks keeping track of the behavior you want to change. When you do you do it? What was the situation? How were you feeling? After two weeks, take a look at your diary. What patterns emerge? Are you surprised at some of the things you are doing that are keeping you from succeeding? 2. Focus on Positive Goals One reason it is often so hard to change your behavior is that you focus on stopping actions you no longer feel are valuable. You might want to eliminate multitasking from your life or stop checking email so often. Your Go System cannot learn not to do something, so you have to focus instead on actions you can take. Aim to write for 30 minutes without taking a break every morning or sit in a nice chair and read a book or article for work each day. Eventually, those behaviors will become habits. 3. Manage Your Environment Much of your behavior is driven by the world around you. So, make the actions you want to perform easy to do and the actions you want to avoid hard. If you want to avoid checking your email so often, keep your email program closed and shut off your cell phone for an hour at a time. That will reduce the number of temptations to stray from your goal. 4. Find Happy People A lot of the goals you adopt are influenced by the actions of the people around you. If you want to develop a new set of behaviors, then find people who have what you want. Find happy people. Spend time with them. Not only will you get some good advice, you will find yourself engaging in the same kinds of routines they do, and that will affect your own happiness. 5. Be Active Too often, people wait for the right time to make a change in their lives. They assume that the right moment will come and everything in their lives will fall into place. Successful people do not wait for some future time to make changes. They act each day. Success is not really a matter of timing. It is a matter of doing work every day and allowing the small successes to accumulate over time. Success is not something that happens one day. It is something that you look back on and realize you achieved. 6. Be Kind to Yourself Finally, remember that your path to success will involve a number of failures as well. Successful writers have their work rejected. Successful scientists do studies that fail. Successful athletes get benched. The trick is to use each failure as an opportunity to learn something new rather than as an excuse not to continue trying. That means that you have to have a little self-compassion. Do not get down on yourself because you failed. Figure out whether you put in enough effort. Analyze what worked and what didn’t. And then get up and try again.
