Today on the podcast:

He received an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and is the foremost leader in understanding behaviour design and habit formation.
In today’s episode, we go through a highly relatable topic on what some call the modern plague when it comes to hitting any end goal – and that is distraction.
Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s episode.
- The three main causes of distraction – external internal and planning problems.
- M.E.A. – minimum enjoyable action when it comes to any new exercise program
- His ‘burn or burn’ technique for weight loss
- How to not get distracted in the middle of your workouts.
- Why willpower and self-control doesn’t help you with distractions
- Strategies for avoiding the ‘gym distractors’ who try and talk to you in the middle of workouts
- Why ‘to do’ lists can create the “I’m a loser” personal identity and what to do instead
