#59: Mads Friis: Simple tool to building habits and reaching goals

by | Oct 7, 2020 | Personal Development

You try to start a new habit but somehow it ends up not becoming a habit 🤷‍♂️ I have tried this way too many times 😅

However, I learned a tool when I was at Harvard which when followed has helped me a lot with building new habits and reaching goals 🎓 Today’s episode is therefore a quick walkthrough of the tool and some of the research backing its effectiveness.  


You can also find a cheat sheet here to get started with the tool: https://growthisland.io/my-harvard-guide-on-how-to-reach-your-goals-and-build-new-habits/


Curious to hear how it works for you and how you work with building habits?
