5 Steps that will Change Your Life Forever!
                             5个步骤改变你的一生!

Research indicates that habits form around 40% of our daily behaviour (Duke University). Positive habit building therefore has the power to change our lives.

研究表明,习惯性行为占我们日常行为的40%(杜克大学)。因此,好习惯的养成能改变我们一生。

Ever bought a gym membership and only used it a couple of times since? Ever tried to save up money to buy something but got nowhere near your savings target?

你是否曾买了健身房会员卡但没能坚持定期去锻炼?曾经计划存钱却没有达成储蓄目标?

After finishing a number of recent training sessions, many attendees were excited to have learned and gained awareness around important interpersonal communication skills.

Big question is how can we ensure this positive change continues after training? Or… how can we build new habits?

在近期的一些培训课程中,学员们因认识到人际沟通技巧的重要性而感到兴奋,并建立了相关意识。但重要的问题来了…… 如何才能持续取得进步并积极改善?或者说,我们如何建立新的好习惯?
 
At Advance Consulting we love using acronyms to help remember things. S.M.A.R.T goals & S.M.A.R.T habits.

在上海冉斯商务咨询有限公司,我们用缩略词记忆法来帮助记忆这5个步骤,即S.M.A.R.T目标和S.M.A.R.T习惯。
 
Step 1: Specific
Get specific about what you want to change. What is the change?
Habit changes such as “I will improve my communication skills” (common pre-training aim) or  “I am going to eat  healthier” are both unlikely to work.

-Break up big goals into smaller manageable chunks.  Rather than lose 20KG go for 2KG first. Professor BJ Fogg calls these tiny habits (www.tinyhabits.com)
 
-Focus on one habit. A 1% habit change per day will provide HUGE payoffs. This is called the kaizen approach to self-improvement.
 
第一步:Specific  具体目标
定下具体的改变目标。
大家经常会下决心要:“提高自己的沟通技巧”(培训预期的目标)或者“我要吃得更健康”,但为什么效果不怎么样?
我们需要做的是——把大目标分成容易做到的小目标。先减掉两公斤,而不是二十公斤。
贝齐·福格教授把这些称作“小习惯”(www.tinyhabits.com)
 
专注于一个目标,每天改变1%,日积月累后将会有巨大的回报。这就是——自我经营改善提高法则。
 
Step 2: Motivation.
You need motivation to change.
If your manager told you to come on a training program you wont change. 
Other people want you to stop smoking you wont. You have got to want it yourself. Best motivation comes from within. This is called intrinsic motivation.

第二步:Motivation  动力。
改变需要动力。
如果只是你的经理想让你去参加一个培训,你也许不会有大的改变。
只是别人想让你戒烟,这恐怕不会成功。你得有自己想做一件事的动力。最强大的动力来自于自己的内心。
这就是内在的动力。

Step 3 Anchor Your Habit
Remind yourself of why you are making the change.  Set a visible reminder to link your new habit with change. 
For example if your habit was to slow down when you speak during con calls then you may put a post it note on your office phone to remind you. Whenever you see this post it note you are anchored to speak slower.

第三步:Anchor Your Habit     锚定你的习惯
提醒你自己想要改变的原因。放置一个明显的提示来提醒自己。
例如,如果你的目标是在打电话时放慢语速,那就在电话上贴一张提示纸条来提醒自己。一见到这张纸条,你就会想到放慢语速。
.
 
Step 4: Reward yourself
It is important to celebrate your wins. It feels good, motivates and re-enforces what you are doing.
Old habits die hard. BUT need to be patient. Get back up if you fall down.

 
第四步:Reward yourself      奖励自己
庆祝你的成就是很重要的,这会让自己感觉良好,并不断鼓励自己,加强动力。
旧习惯很难改,需要耐心。即使失败,也要重新振作起来继续努力。
 
Step 5: Time bound
Not only do we need to know exactly what habit we want to change but also when and how long we are going to give ourselves.
According to research, it takes 66 days for a new behaviour to become automatic –or your habit to form.

第五步:Time bound 限时
我们不仅需要很清楚的知道想改变的是什么习惯,而且也要知道具体如何实现并限定期限。
研究表明,从一个新的行为转变为习惯性行为需要花66天。
