This is part 2 of my interview with Dr. BJ Fogg, author of Tiny Habits: The Small Changes that Change Everything. In this part, we talk about how success breeds success and having your patient work on the habit you want them to change shouldn’t be the first priority. The first priority should be what they want to change because it shows them that they can be successful in creating lasting change. We also discuss how positive emotions help to encode habits and he actually came up with a technique to make ourselves feel successful after we’ve performed an act we want to repeat. We end by talking about the habits that he is still working on himself.

Dr. Fogg founded the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University. In addition to his research, Dr. Fogg teaches industry innovators how human behavior really works. He created the Tiny Habits Academy to help people around the world and interestingly, the Tiny Habits Academy long preceded the Tiny Habits book. He lives in Northern California and Maui.
