A Simple Model to Create New Habits

To create a new habit, work through the model, or formula:

Motivation+Ability+Prompt=Behavior

  1. Is there a prompt for the desired behavior?
  2. Is there ability to complete the desired behavior?
  3. Is there motivation to complete the desired behavior?

As any great leader or manager can attest, all of these questions need to be answered as it relates to the individual completing the behavior.

The process of habits includes neurological cravings for the pleasure-inducing neurotransmitter dopamine, which motivate us to take action. However, motivation alone is not enough to help us change our behavior and create a habit.
