For many years, my wife, Alyssa, and I have had the argument about what is the “better way” to do hard things.

For example: 

  • Do you never have sugar/carbs or do you allow a cheat day?
  • Is it better to train for a half-marathon by running with friends long distances or by doing sprints alone during the weekend? 
  • Do you create new habits in your life by getting an accountability buddy or by taking the time to write out your purpose and your “why” in creating the habit?
  • Here’s the thing: 

    When it comes to doing “Hard Things” or changing your behavior, all of them could be right OR none of them…. Wait what?

    OK - the real answer is IT DEPENDS.

    Why? Because not everything will work for everyone. Unfortunately, so much research and personal development advice out there is about “the best way” for all humans. But for many things in life - from nutrition, to running, to saving for retirement, to remembering to put your car keys in the same place - not everything is going to work for everyone. 

    So how do you know what’s really going to work for you? 

    One way is by learning how your personal expectations (and the expectations of others) influence your behavior. 

    If you get this one thing right, it makes choosing a training plan, accomplishing financial goals, and even making a career change and finding your car keys so much easier. 

    Learn how to do this by listening to our latest episode of the podcast with Gretchen Rubin, the author of “The Happiness Project” and “Better Than Before.”
