Learn This One Skill and You Can Change Everything

You have a vision of something you want to accomplish in life.

What is that vision for you? You probably have several large and small goals or dreams floating around in your mind.

Maybe you want to . . .

exercise

eat healthier

learn a new skill

write regularly

meditate

de-clutter

floss your teeth daily

wake up earlier

Maybe you’ve tried to master them. Started. Stopped. Tried again. Stopped. Given up. Felt bad about yourself.

Whenever we attempt to try something new, that seems to be the pattern. We begin with great intentions and loads of enthusiasm. But a few weeks into our efforts, we peter out.

Why do we do this?

Are we weak? Undisciplined? Lazy? Incapable?  We might feel that way when we fail. But we aren’t any of those things. We simply haven’t learned the one skill that makes all other skills possible — how to create sustainable habits.

On Monday, September 10, at 9:00 a.m. EDT, Leo Babauta, Katie Tallo, and I  are releasing The Habit Course Self-Study Program.

This is the same program teaching The Simple Method for creating habits that we have offered live to hundreds of successful habit creators. Now it’s available to you at any time, to complete at your convenience.

Successfully creating life-long habits involves a specific skill set. Without learning these skills and putting them into action, your habit creation efforts are destined to fail.

Over the period of 4 weeks during The Habit Course Self-Study Program, you will learn The Simple Method, putting it into practice on one habit of your choosing. By the end of the program, you will have mastered this habit and the skills for creating new habits for life.

This Method is exactly what Leo Babauta (of Zen Habits) used to accomplish . . .

  • Quitting smoking.
  • Becoming a runner.
  • Running several marathons and triathlons.
  • Waking early.
  • Becoming organized and productive.
  • Eating healthier.
  • Becoming a vegetarian.
  • Tripling his income.
  • Writing a novel and a non-fiction book.
  • Eliminating his debt.
  • Simplifying his life.
  • Losing weight (more than 60 pounds).
  • Writing several best-selling e-books.
  • Starting a successful Top 25 blog.
  • Starting a second blog for writers and bloggers.
  • Creating a leading blog on minimalism.
  • Living car-free.

The Simple Method involves . . .

planning and preparation;

time management;

creating a trigger;

setting up rewards and accountability.

During the program, we will break down all of the steps into easy, manageable parts. And we will provide guidance for the roadblocks and emotions that are part of establishing habits.

The course includes dozens of articles, worksheets, videos, podcasts, case studies, and webinar recordings. There are 12 guest experts who provide additional insights and instruction. You will know exactly what to do week-by-week as you follow through the course, resulting in a brand new habit.

With the course, you will receive 11 bonus self-improvement books and programs valued at over $300.

You can read what several of our past participants of the live course have to say about the program on The Habit Course site.

If you are serious about making positive change in your life that doesn’t disappear after a few weeks, please check out The Habit Course Self-Study Program.

  1. Barrie,

    So happy you’re offering this course. I think habit development is one of the most important opportunities we have for bettering ourselves and realizing our long-term goals.

    Best of luck!

  2. I know I need this because I have purchased several self-improvement books and not worked my way all the way through them.

    …..and this is the corollary to not being able to find my “Let Go of Clutter” book because my house has gotten so messy again.

    Thank you!

      Hi Meg,
      I hope you do get the course — it really shows you exactly how to solidify a habit so that it becomes as natural as brushing your teeth or anything else you do automatically.
