PSD Video Tip #3: Using triggers for creating habits

creating habits

Using this very simple technique, creating habits comes very easy and it is fun too!

  1. Hey Timo,

    Every night before I go to bed I jot down 5 things that I MUST do online the following day. I put that post-it note on my screen, so it’s right in front of my face and I’m not going to be until I get those choirs done.
    That’s how I formed a new constructive habit.

    thanks for the share!


  2. Hi Timo, I know it’s a little off topic but I want to share something with you as it’s very much a trigger like your explaining. 4 years ago I quit smoking cigarettes. this was the biggest challenge ever I mean it! What I did is every time I wanted a cigarette I simply drank water. Now the crazy part is these trigger’s also work backwards. For example if I’m thirsty now I also find myself craving a smoke. Is this weird?

      Sure, that is really weird Brian!

      Anyway, that was another great example of triggers in action – thanks for sharing :)
