For Behavior Modification, the key is to just get started. One of the quickest ways to get started is to make something easy by breaking it down to its smallest component.

For example:

  • Don't commit to working out, commit to one pushup every morning.
  • Don't commit to flossing, commit to flossing just one tooth.
  • Don't commit to changing your whole diet, start with breakfast first.
  • After that, momentum takes over and you can "scale" your habit.
