No matter where you are, it’s beginning to look like New Years. But before we say ta ta to 2018, we look back at the year that was on a special edition of the Texas Standard:
How do you celebrate? Or do you? That was the inspiration for this Typewriter Rodeo poem.
It’s that time of the year when we resolve to drink less, exercise more, save money, etc.
It may feel really good to intend to do “better” in the new year, but as Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke explain in this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, real change takes planning and hard work.
Why is that? It turns out we have no idea why we do most of the things we do on a daily basis. And as long as our behaviors are driven by factors that operate below our conscious awareness, we may not know how to change.
As the Two Guys point out, effective change can happen when we start from the outside in. When we look at our environments first we can make space and cultivate relationships that help us become best selves.
