"Consistency over time vs. a short burst of activity is what ultimately encourages and supports the development of any habit."
Today's Frequently Asked Friday episode aims to bust a myth:
"To form a habit you must perform the behavior every day."
That is absolutely NOT true! The worst part, believing such a myth might actually prevent you from trying to develop new, positive habits!
What is important -- above all else -- is consistency over time! Remember P.A.R.R.: Plan, Act, Record Reassess. The process of habit tracking for 28 days will allow the "seedling" of your habit to take root. Raising the minimum success criteria and going another 28 days will instill it even further!
Listen in to hear what actually has to happen to create a habit and develop a skill.
Enjoy the episode!
