A Simple Trick to Develop Good Habits that Stick and Break Bad Ones | Don’t Break the Chain Method

Want to create good habits that stick or break a bad one? That’s the question I answer in today’s video. We can form good habits by simply performing the task each day and placing a big red X on a calendar. This is also known as the “don’t break the chain” technique and I go over the psychological reasons it works. I also go over how long it takes to form a habit (avg: 66 days). This trick can help you find success in developing any habit such as waking up early, exercising, or reading. This technique is widely (and falsely) attributed to Jerry Seinfeld. I learned mid-production that Seinfeld did not invent this technique, apologies in advance. Nonetheless, it’s still a good technique!
