Personal & Professional Development
We all want to get better at our jobs, have more time, build better relationships, and contribute more to society, which is why personal and professional development matters. The rate of personal and professional development is one of the biggest differences between prolific, successful people and their average peers.
And, according to Stanford professor, BJ Fogg, there are really only 3 ways to develop:
- Have an epiphany
- Change your environment
- Change your behaviors
The first is unreliable. The second is powerful, but not always an option. The third is hard if you’re trying to do it without knowing how. There is a science to behavior change anchored in the science of habit formation. It addresses how we change our behaviors and how we identify and unpack psychological hurdles or mindsets that hold us back.
