We have been talking about those stubborn goals that have been on your list year after year.
Are you ready to finally make progress? Cognitive science to the rescue!
My goal to get to 185 pounds has been on my list for about 7 years!
My goal is now in sight.
Using If/Then/When statements I have created a simple series of micro habits and each habit has a reinforcement component, part of which is me envisioning seeing 185 pounds on my scale.
Cognitive research shows that visualizing a goal in isolation is detrimental to goal achievement. Instead, we should visualize the desired outcome of the goal AND also visualize overcoming our main obstacle for that goal. For me, the obstacle has been snacking through the night.
Now, evening grazing is no longer a habit!
