Today's guest is Katy Milkman, who is an award-winning behavioral scientist and Professor at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She hosts the popular behavioral economics podcast Choiceology, and is the co-founder and co-director of The Behavior Change for Good Initiative. Her research is regularly featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and NPR. And in this interview Lewis and Katy get to dive into some of the research for her new book,How to Change: The Science of Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.
This was such a powerful and enlightening conversation that we had to split it up in 2 parts! You can listen to the first part by going to www.lewishowes.com/1151 where Lewis and Katy talking about the biggest internal barriers holding you back, the science of believing in yourself, why setting big goals is actually hurting your ability to succeed, “Commitment Devices” and how they lead you to a better life.
And in this second episode Lewis and Katy discuss the number 1 thing we need to know about changing ourselves for the better, what science says about how to prioritize your goals, making pledges and why they’re the key to accountability, how to “temptation bundle” and why this skill is so important for creating new habits, why we need to be more flexible with our goals, and so much more!
