Making Your Own Luck With The Power OF Habits With Mike Forest.

How can you hack your habits, and make the hard things in life easy..er?

How can you push the domino over and set a cascade of good habits that keep accelerating your results?
To learn how we can do this I brought on Mike Forest from Thehabit.space and fellow podcaster on the Smarter Sculpted Physique Podcast

Some of my favorite takeaways golden nuggets from this interview:

  1. The habit cascade and his vitamin D, sun light expose example with training, thinking and structuring your day right to win.
  2. His advice for bulletproofing your own success by planning in detail. And how to use others and pre commit to make the action more do able.
  3. That little voice inside your head that justifies why you need to eat that piece of chocolate, why you shouldn’t go to the gym etc. and cultivating the habit of telling this little voice to piss off.
  4. Having back up meals and just having contingency plans in place for things like training and nutrition.
