Based in modern behavioural science
There have been a growing number of books published in the last few years on changing habits. Unbelievably though, almost all of them are based in behavioural science that was developed over 80 years ago based on the study of training pigeons and rats. The applicability of “behaviourism” to human beings has since been largely discredited by modern psychology, and of course behavioural science has made leaps and bounds of progress in that time.
We are doing things differently. The Smartstart program is based in modern behavioural science, so no pigeons or sticks have been harmed in bringing it to you. Instead you will be supported by a program designed to intelligently leverage the full power of being a human being, whilst recognising those aspects of our psychology that unconsciously strive to undermine our best efforts.
We know that changing your behaviour is hard, so we use behavioural science to help you stack the odds in your favour.
Smarter than a book
Books are a great medium for learning new knowledge. However putting knowledge into practical action is quite another matter. For instance, reading a book about how to play a musical instrument is not even half way there to actually being able to play the instrument. The same goes for changing habits.
Whilst making a change in your world requires new knowledge, it also requires many other ingredients including motivation, practice, learning and perservance. What sets the Smartstart program apart is that it will not only equip you with new knowledge about how to master new habits, but it will also help you to integrate this into your life together with the other essential ingredients.
