I think habits are here to make our lives easier. Habits, like walking, allow us to focus on doing other things – like getting to our beloved quickly, without worrying about how we do it. We can just relax and let our legs do the walking (or running perhaps).

I think a good life consists partly in developing good habits. Habits like checking in to see we are being authentic and listening to others.

So, I’m developing a new course and website. I think we can develop the habit of checking in to see whether we are in touch with our authentic selves or not. I think having a daily reminder each day for 30 days can help people do this. Which will be my next online course. I think if we develop the ‘habit’ of authenticity we will have much more satisfying lives.

At the moment I am writing the course and the landing page. It should be ready to go in the next month. Watch this space, Evan.


Would you like to feel less stressed?
Could you do with more joy in your life?

The answer is living authentically. Buy the book or sign up for the course now from my Living Authentically website.

    I like this fresh new take on the concept of habits — many uses of the term in the personal development context have me feel irritated, because they seem to be premised on the idea that all we need to do is adopt Habit X and that will “make people do what we want.” But this seems to be more about simply adopting the habit of checking in with what you want in each moment.

    Hi Chris. The idea that if we adopt habit X then people will do what we want, isn’t in line with my experience (to put it as kindly as possible). If only it were this easy! (Though I’m not sure about making people do what we want anyway.) My idea is developing the habit of just checking in with ourselves. The next step is acting in response to what we find (a whole ‘nother story). I think once we have a good sense of who/where we are then we can live a more satisfying life. Thanks for your comment.

  3. about a year ago, i started the habit of simply asking myself at the end of the day, “what’s one occasion where i’ve felt like i was really myself?” that has been very useful and interesting. i guess a program like yours would help to keep track of that …

    What a wonderful question. Yes I hope the program will help people keep track of that sense of themselves. Thanks for your comment.
