Martin, See my previous comment. The content is great, but I wish you would change your podcast name back to the original HabitFactor instead of Habits2Goals. My only goal is to develop and maintain healthy habits. The notion of Goals gets too complicated and may confuse many. Need to be clear & calm before we can identify goals. At least make it clear that we don’t have to set our Goals before starting down this path. Bill

Great stuff!

Rank #1: S02-Frequently Asked Friday 08: How to Quit A BAD Habit

Podcast cover
Read more

"It's crazy... so many habit apps allow you to track bad habits. Please, please, do not ever track BAD HABITS you're just putting attention and focus on what you do NOT want!"

"To eliminate a bad habit replace it with a good one."

Martin begins this episode by sharing how the environment is the first line of defense (or maybe even offense) when trying to kill a BAD Habit. Modifying your environment helps you to remove the common triggers and allows you to create impediments to executing the behavior you are trying to avoid.

Next, Martin shares a famous quote by a Dutch Renaissance Theologian, Desiderius Erasmus who said, "A nail is driven out by a nail, habit is replaced by a habit." Replacement is the key to elimination, NOT just removing the bad behavior... "that creates a vacuum!"

Finally, the listener is encouraged to revisit a prior episode "3 Bad Habit Busting Tips" and in that episode— as here, Martin revisits the "3 Ments" when it comes to killing a bad habit; environment, replacement and finally experiment.

Rank #3: S02-Mind Bullet Monday 17: The Power of Quadrant #2!

Podcast cover
Read more

"The key is tricking yourself to move quadrant two items to quadrant one whenever possible."

This episode Martin revisits Stephen Covey's classic Effectiveness or Time Management Grid.

Many of us become great at "getting stuff done" (GTD) the only challenge is that often it's NOT the the important stuff that, in the long run, will make us feel content, accomplished and like we've lived a life that was worth living.

All too often that "stuff" resides in quadrant one as Dr. Covey points out yet, it's quadrant #2 as Covey defines it, where things the important but not urgent items are that have the most value to us.

What sort of things can be found in quadrant #2?

-Planning and strategy -Setting a vision -Exercising -Reading to your children -Vocation -Prevention -Long-Term Goals

Martin explores this idea that within his latest book, The Pressure Paradox™ one of the underlying themes was the importance to creating a sense of urgency (pressure) and how a key to being more effective is moving the those long-term goals into quadrant 1.

For instance, the book and even the app as well as goals like the Ironman and catalina classic were all quadrant #2 items. And, it was via the use of The Habit Factor that helped move those key behaviors (habits) into quadrant #1.

Check it out — listen to today's episode and see if you can't identify the important quadrant #2 items in your life and make sure you are tracking the important habits that will help you achieve your goals!

Rank #4: Eat That Frog!

Podcast cover
Read more

"If the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you can go through the rest of your day knowing that was probably the very worst thing that will happen to you the rest of your day."~Brian Tracy

Your “frog” is your biggest, ugliest, perhaps most difficult and often most important task, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on and keep pushing out into an unspecified future.

Chances as good that each and everyone of us are avoiding something; a doctor's appointment, paying a bill, making a phone call, etc., There is undoubtedly a brutal task starring you in the face and often the irony is we only make these tasks seem larger and more difficult by putting them off.

"Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of the uncompleted task" goes an old saying. And Lao Tzu advised, "Do the difficult things while they are easy and the great things while they are small.

For some of us the "Frog" is getting ourselves to the gym every other morning. So, the challenge for us is to stop thinking about it— and building it up— to look that ugly 'frog' square in the eyes and eat it knowing that the rest of our day will be relatively easy!

Listen in to hear more about frog eating and why the topic even came up. Enjoy the episode!

“I was facing some rejection from a lot of areas in my life... everything kinda caved in all at the same time.”

Meet Cathey F! An amazing woman and a long-time THF reader, app user and podcast listener. MG begged her to share her story about her semi-recent struggles and how she was able to breakthrough.

Cathey was in "total overwhelm"... trying to start a new business in the midst of a potential health crises, changes in her community, social circle and other difficulties made even tracking a few habits just too much.

Then, she signed up for a "Focus & Discipline" webinar hosted by MG and shares how some of that content combined with tracking certain key habits proved to help feed her ongoing breakthrough.

Every reader/listener is going through a challenge or will be! Her willingness to share her experience is likely to help others and bring great value to the audience!

Brilliant job — thank you again Cathey!

Rank #6: S5: 51: Too Late?

Podcast cover
Read more

"Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right." ~Henry Ford

On this Frequently Asked Friday we ask the seemingly ominous-sounding question: Is it too late?

Too late for what? Too late to achieve our goals... too late to realize our ideal future.

Just as the great Henry Ford proffered in the quote above, it may depend on what you think

At 50, Ray Croc started the McDonalds juggernaut. Colonel Sanders was in his mid-60s when he sold his famed recipe and the KFC franchise was launched. The founder of Wal-Mart was 44 when he opened his first store. The examples go on and on.

The stories echo the same themes: Failure, rejection, success.

It may sound cliched, but it's important to realize that if it's been done before, we can do it too! Even if it hasn't been done before, we can do it! Recall the episode, Anyone Can Do It!

Listen in to be inspired to fight through repeated failure and rejection, become the person you are meant to be, and understand that it's never too late to go after your goals!

Rank #7: S3-21: MBM - The Fruits of Pain

Podcast cover
Read more

"Habit; A shackle for the free." ~Ambrose Bierce Martin shares how his latest experiment, abstaining from alcohol for just one month (unable to have a beer or two a night) then evolved into another behavior experiment, a modified low carb/diet. Both of these he explains were fairly painful yet, the fruits— the rewards of each have been fantastic!

"It's kinda like the frogs that are boiled to death in the pot as they are slowly cooked. The temperature rises slowly, one degree at a time and they never notice or try to escape until it's too late. The frogs are just too comfortable until, of course, they are dead."

"There are two great pains in life," Jim Rohn is famous for saying. "The pain of discipline or the pain of regret." "Discipline" he assures us "weighs ounces but regret weighs tons."

The bad news is there is no escaping the pain. The good news is we have a choice. And, the best news is; you should know that there is tremendous FRUIT on the other side of that pain and challenge you put yourself under!

Ideally, we don't want to arrive at the end of our lives thinking "I SHOULD HAVE" tried this, learned that, only to realize we have wasted too much time and most of it in a perpetual mission to stay "comfortable".

Keep experimenting— keep leaning into the pain and discomort the great challenges that will make you better. You're far stronger and more resilient than you know and you won't ever know if you don't try!

Go for it! Enjoy the show! ; )

P.S.: ANYTIME YOU CHANGE / MODIFY YOUR DIET FIRST seek the advice of a medical professional. This is not an endorsement of any particular diet product or plan.

Rank #8: S3-17: FAF - What is the Quickest Way to Happiness?

Podcast cover
Read more

Today's topic involves the age-old quest for humans to BE HAPPY! That's it! "How can I be more happy?" Or as the title of the show suggests, "What's the quickest way to happiness?"

As you might guess MG and HE have a few thoughts on the matter. Henry starts with a great recount of friend who "wasn't particularly happy" and gives him an exercise to perform.

MG recounts a semi-related parallel story shared by the late, great Dr. Wayne Dyer. Then they go off. The list of tips gets long enough for Henry to exclaim, "I think there's a formula here!" Give this FAF a listen and let us know if you don't (or, do) come a way a little happier! ; )

This episode has us turning the tables... in the coming weeks we'll begin to weave-in interviews of domain industry experts so we figured we might as well start with Nick Palkowski, podcast guru, expert in online marketing strategy and all-around-great guy!

Things weren't always sunshine and rainbows for Nick. The first business he started in college, while a great learning experience, ultimately left him with $2 in his bank account and a jar of peanut butter. A jar of peanut butter. Those important lessons (from failure) taught Nick what not to do and what he needed to do differently. They proved invaluable and led him to launch his booming, full-time business Your Podcast Guru.

"The best way to grow your business is to consistently add value to your audience." @NickPalkowski

One of the most important factors for Nick was understanding that success is a habit, meaning he recognized the importance of becoming a consistent and disciplined professional. Nick even shared his top three character traits and supportive habits on the show... (23:45):

  1. Reading every day
  2. Evening ritual
  3. Exercise

We discuss an important principle, "The Principle of Maximum Error"  and how Nick's story is a great, real-life example. So, if you're interested in podcasting and self-improvement (with some inspiration) listen now and check out his custom page for THF listeners:  www.yourpodcastguru.com/thf.

Rank #11: Super Conscious Connectivity

Podcast cover
Read more

Many of the greatest thinkers and philosophers throughout history believed that ideas are "alive" and readily available in some sort of universal space which is often referred to as "infinite intelligence" or the Super-Conscious.

Whatever you want to call it, chances are it exists! Emerson once noted, "There is a power above and behind us and we are the channel of its communication."

 There is a power above and behind us and we are the channel of its communication. —EMERSON

The best part is this "resource" isn't relegated to the super genius or the super-creative... it's available to everyone...all you have to do is connect to it!

Perhaps you've wondered how Leonardo da Vinci could draw a helicopter centuries before one existed or how Edison had the insight for the lightbulb or Ford the carburetor or... and, on and on it goes.

Even Albert Einstein once noted, "There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why."

"A LEAP IN CONSCIOUSNESS"... Fascinating.

To draw upon this innate creative intelligence that we all have Martin and I review a "system" that he credited helped to reveal many of the insights in The Habit Factor and now his upcoming book, The Pressure Paradox. The process is just an ordered formula or recipe he calls the "Ments".

1. Elucidate

Start by defining the end state.. the problem and the ideal solution. Try to get crystal clear on the underlying problem and this will help to provide some associations and connections you may have not otherwise made.

2. Investigate

Once defined... RESEARCH! Feed your conscious and subconscious mind with the problem and all available information you can find about it and possible solutions. What's been written and thought about it already. With the search engines of today, research has never been easier!

3. Marinate or (accelerate if you must)

The next step is to allow the problem and all the related information you have come across in your research to really sink in.  Think about the idea often and just let the idea marinate for while. You can accelerate the process through a brainstorming session with others. Sometimes, depending on the urgency of the matter, a person might marinate on a subject for years.

4. Emancipate

As you marinate, set the problem free.... go for a jog, surf, take a walk hit the gym. Just get away from the problem that you are trying to solve. This allows you subconscious mind to take over the process and make the connections and associations--the leap as Einstein called it that you can not make consciously.

5. Congregate

After releasing your problem, the insights will start to arrive. Now is the time to corral them, and pair them up and ORGANIZE all the new ideas with the research and the original problem statement and see how your new solution fits.

This super conscious connectivity may seem mysterious at first, but when you start following this process you will see better and faster results on a consistent basis. Much like any exercise and like a muscle continued use will strengthen the skill. Start to identify opportunities in your life where you need an innovative solutions. Make super conscious connectivity a habit you practice.

Rank #12: S601: Your Future Self

Podcast cover
Read more

"We tend to believe that in the future, we're much, much better."

"You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do." Henry Ford

Habits2Goals kicks off its sixth season with a powerful Mind Bullet: Your Future Self. 

A topic called "behavioral economics" was the catalyst for this mind bullet. In his book The Undoing Project, author Michael Lewis discussed the concept of behavioral economics—the idea that humans are not rational creatures. They're emotional. Sometimes they eat too much, sometimes they drink too much, etc.

The concept of behavioral economics cropped up again in an NPR podcast featuring Richard Thaler, who won a Nobel Prize for behavioral economics and is the author of Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics. Thaler said something that resonated: "We are all better in our future self."

Think about it: Our future self is amazing! We say things like, "I'm going to get her flowers next week." "When I get my raise, I'm going to save more money." I'm going to eat better, give more, save more, make better decisions—in the future.

It's time to live in the present and be your best self NOW. Create the life you want by being more aware. When you say something like, "I'll start saving money next month," bring it back to NOW immediately: I'll start an automatic savings program NOW. Buying her flowers next week? No, buy her flowers right now. Eat better, drink less, save more—NOW. 

Listen in to hear about taking your future self off a pedestal and consciously creating the best version of yourself NOW.

Rank #13: S617: Goal-Setting 201

Podcast cover
Read more

"If Artificial Intelligence (AI) is goal-directed behavior, then setting meaningful and worthwhile goals is a true sign of real intelligence."

Henry J. Evans joins Habits2Goals to pick up where last week's episode, Goal-Setting 101, left off, continuing our discussion of the massive topic of goal-setting

Last week we discussed the what, why, and how of goal-setting, among other things learning why SMART goals aren't smart, how to become the best version yourself that you can imagine, how to stay motivated, and how habits and tracking are game-changers when you're creating your own vision of yourself. 

This week, we look at the importance of setting goals, managing the inevitable setbacks that come with goal setting, how accountability plays a role, and why tracking habits is the magic secret sauce in goal achievement.

Listen in to hear more on why goal-directed behavior is the very definition of intelligence, why goals are mostly about your capacity to set the goal and go after it, how tracking is key, and much more.

Rank #14: S02-Mind Bullet Monday 10: As A Man Thinketh

Podcast cover
Read more

What thoughts are you choosing and
encouraging?

"This little volume (the result of meditation
and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the
much-written upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive
rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and
women to the discovery and perception of the truth that -
 
They themselves are makers of themselves
by virtue of the thoughts which they choose and encourage; that
mind is the master-weaver, both of the inner garment of character
and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have
hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in
enlightenment and happiness." As a Man
Thinketh
, ~James Allen

Martin kicks off this episode with a quick read
of the above foreword by James Allen and then breaks down some of
the main ideas, sharing his experience as it relates to Allen's
opening insights.

"Mind is the master-weaver, both of the
inner garment of character and the outer garment of
circumstance..."

Our habits of thought and behavior direct and
dictate our circumstance, our present condition and then,
ultimately shape and define our character.

Our unique capacity to take mindful control of
THOUGHT— to direct our thinking toward our goals and ambitions is
omnipotent. Or, we can waste the capability and allow it to drift
idle and aimless.

This episode ends with a bit of a challenge —
to be mindful of our thoughts and our speech and ask, "What are
your thoughts weaving today and what form will they assume
tomorrow?"

We all have this unique gift... the powerful
capacity to develop  new habits of thought. And, it can only
begin with awareness and then the intention to apply it
consciously.

You can get to do this any time you
decide!

Enjoy the episode and be sure to share this
Mind Bullet Monday with your friends!

Rank #15: S603: How to Kill a Bad Habit

Podcast cover
Read more

"A nail is driven out by another nail. Habit is overcome by habit.” ~Desiderius Erasmus

On the first Frequently Asked Friday of Habits2Goals Season 6, we tackle a back-to-basics topic first visited in Season 1: How to kill a bad habit.

The formula is simple: To kill a bad habit, use the three "ments": environment, replacement, and experiment

Say you need to kill the bad habit of drinking beer. To control your environment and make it conducive to quitting this habit, don't buy beer. Need to quit smoking? Don't buy cigarettes or be around those who smoke. The bottom line: If your environment is conducive to a bad habit, that bad habit isn't going anywhere. Create impediments to create a prohibitive environment!

Substitute comes next: If you're quitting beer, perhaps substitute it with non-alcoholic beer. If your habit is smoking, go for a walk when your friends go out for a smoke. Remember that just as a nail is driven out by another nail, habit is driven out by another habit. 

Next, experiment: Nothing in life is static, so try things out and find what works for you.  

Listen in to learn the fundamentals of killing a bad habit without disrupting social cues and conditions, and how the three "ments" are game-changers when you're trying to change your life.  

Enjoy the episode!

Rank #16: S02-Mind Bullet Monday 14: The Company You Keep

Podcast cover
Read more

"I'm an overnight success, it just took twenty years."

We tend to overestimate what we can accomplish in the short term and under estimate what we can achieve in the long run.

Today's episode is about how long it takes to really make any entrepreneurial endeavor "stick". That is, whether it's a book, an app, a podcast or any business endeavor, if it's something you want to succeed you'd better be willing to invest years of time, effort and personal energy.

To kick off the episode Martin first shares a quote by the late, great Steve Jobs regarding just how hard it is to create a successful company and ultimately why so many people quit.

It's hard. It's very, very hard and you have to be persistent.

Martin shares how he fully underestimated the amount of time it would take and now, 20+ years later, it is still an active company and partnership.

When you think about it, the most successful companies have been around dozens and some even over a hundred years. It seems the most successful companies are even generational.

So, it's important to know that when you start something you are planting a seed that will need consistent care and feeding for years to come.

Rank #17: S3-29: FAF -What's the #1 Trait for Success?

Podcast cover
Read more

SUCCESS! Seems everyone wants it and today's question is (if there is one) what is the #1 trait that determines one's success.

Both MG and Henry recognize this could easily result in multiple-days worth of discussions and certainly there are hundreds if not thousands of books written on the matter. Having said that, they both manage to narrow their answer down to a few, very select traits.

The best part (as you know) is any of these traits is create-able via the magical force of HABIT!

Tune in and then let MG and Henry know what YOU think the #1 trait is!

Rank #18: S3-16: Klyn Elsbury: The Change-Maker

Podcast cover
Read more

“Even in the most difficult times you are the one who gives your situation power by attaching a story to it”. ~Klyn Elsbury

Klyn Elsbury is one of the real change-makers of her generation! She's written a bestselling book, taught a Zumba class, runs a recruiting firm and perhaps most incredibly has done ALL of these things while battling Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs.

In fact, Klyn made her battle with Cystic Fibrosis public in 2015 in an effort to combat big pharma and make a critical drug affordable. "I was already taking about 20 other different medications daily, there was no way I could afford that $259,000 price tag so I wrote a heartfelt blog post and that ended up going viral."

Klyn touches on all of this and shares with Martin a handful of key mindsets that allow her to stay strong and push through the tough days.

Klyn also shares how her company has uniquely positioned itself in the recruiting space, her take on "success", her best habits, favorite app, and a great book she's recently enjoyed (links below) all on this episode of Habits 2 Goals.

Rank #19: S607: The 10,000 Hour Rule

Podcast cover
Read more

"Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good." ~Malcolm Gladwell

Today's Mind Bullet revolves around a famous success tenet that, when you look deeper, simply reflects the magic of The Habit Factor: The 10,000-hour rule

The 10,000-hour rule was made famous in Malcolm Gladwell's book Outliers, which discusses the outlier-type variables that influence success, for example when you were born. 

10,000 hours spent practicing a skill. This rings a bell. What is created when you do something over and over again until you become unconsciously proficient? That's right! A habit!

In Outliers, while Gladwell points out the seemingly random occurrences that contribute to success, he discusses one consistent success factor that holds true across all instances: the 10,000 rule. That is, practicing a specific task that can be accomplished with 20 hours of work a week for 10 years, leading to otherworldly proficiency.

Tune in for more on Gladwell's 10,000-hour rule, the one great constant among extreme success stories, and how the Habit Factor compounds supportive behaviors to carry us automatically toward our goals.

Rank #20: S02-Mind Bullet : Who's To Blame?

Podcast cover
Read more

Who is to blame when things go wrong?

Yes... this is a Mind Bullet on a Wednesday. (you are not crazy). Martin starts this episode with a bit of a chuckle as the guest for this episode had to reschedule at the last minute leaving him with a Wednesday Mind Bullet (regular listeners know that Wednesdays are reserved for interviews). So this last minute shift in plans creates a learning moment.

In life people will often drop the ball - not follow through, etc. It's very easy to fall into the blame-game trap. To point fingers and absolve oneself of responsibility.

Martin shares a quick story about a Facebook post from an entrepreneur who was ranting about "people not doing the job right in the first place" and "wasting half my day fixing their mistakes."

The question is; Who is really responsible? Who is really to blame?

It turns out taking responsibility ends up providing a host of benefits including freedom and ultimately saves us from needlessly wasting energy.
