YAPLive: The Science of Habit Building with BJ Fogg | Cut Version

Do you have trouble sticking to habits, but want to create sustainable behavioral change? Maybe you’re setting huge, life-changing goals that require daily motivation, or perhaps you’re simply having trouble remembering to complete the action at all. This happens to all of us, but social scientist and New York Times bestselling author, BJ Fogg, has the solution. Start small. BJ is the mind behind the idea of the tiny habit.
