Identify your Golden Behaviors and focus on them to create positive change in your life
Write your aspiration down
If you can’t think of anything, write something as simple as ‘reduce my stress.’
Write down ten specific behaviors that would lead you to your aspiration
For example: Instead of “Play with my dog” as a way to reduce stress, make it specific by saying “Play fetch with my dog each evening at home.”
Put a star beside five behaviors that would be highly effective
Don’t think about feasibility. Simply focus on the impact that these behaviors would have on your aspirations.
Circle the behaviours that are both effective and simple to practice
Be realistic. Does thinking about doing this behavior fill you with energy and excitement or cause you to grimace and feel dread?
