How to Motivate Yourself to Change Your Behaviour

I find this such a fascinating TEDx Talk.


Tali Sharot explains why warnings don’t work to change behaviour, but instead the three things that do work.

Her key findings from the research showed the most effective ways to create lasting change were:
* Social Incentives – because people care what others think
* Immediate Rewards – because we are driven by instant gratification
* Progress Monitoring – by highlighting the progress, not the decline

“If we want to motivate change we might want to rethink how we do it because fear induces inaction, where the thrill of the gain induces action. So try positive strategies rather than threats, which capitalise on the human tendency to seek progress.”
