Best of: Build Good Habits in 2020: Stanford Behavioral Scientist BJ Fogg – Love Your Work, Episode 211

January 02 2020 – 07:30am

bj fogg bestofThis is the time of year when we make resolutions. Very few of us will actually keep them.

The reason we can’t keep resolutions is that resolutions don’t work. We would be better at reaching their goals if they built habits, instead.

BJ Fogg (@bjfogg) is a behavioral scientist at Stanford University. He specializes in “Behavior Design.”

BJ has a new book coming out, right now in the beginning of 2020. It’s called Tiny Habits.

I wanted to have him back on the show to announce the book. But then I realized that this episode on how to build good habits is so good that it’s worth running again.

Here’s what you’ll learn:
