Learn about the easy and proven way to build good habits and break the bad ones.

What’s a habit? If someone were to ask you about your daily habits, you might need some time to think about them. That’s because a habit, by definition, is an act that you perform automatically by instinct. Like when you walk into a dark room, you instinctively turn on a light switch, right? Habits are actions you don’t even have to think about, which is why you might not realize how a small daily action can have a powerful effect on your life. If you’re saving a dollar a day or smoking a cigarette a day, these actions may not seem like much now, but twenty years from now, those habits can either make you rich or, unfortunately, kill you. That’s why it’s important to understand how habits are formed, so you can learn how to kick the bad habits, implement the healthy ones, and take back control of your life.

136. Temptation Bundling: A Simple Trick to Reach Your Goals, a Behavioral Economics Foundations Episode
Today we are going to be talking about a really cool trick called temptation bundling. You may have noticed this is a shorter episode than we usually have on the podcast and that is because while temptation bundling can make a huge impact on your life and business, it doesn’t have to be all that complicated. (Hooray!) In this episode, you’ll learn what temptation bundling is, how it works, some ways I have done this myself in my own work, and tips on how you can jump in and start bundling yourself!

Show Notes: * [01:03] In this episode, you’ll learn what temptation bundling is, how it works, some ways I have done this myself in my own work, and tips on how you can use it too. * [02:15] One of my favorite things about this concept is how simple it is. This is actually something I’ve done naturally most of my life before it had a name. * [03:17] When I required some extra motivation, I created little milestone moments and rewards to keep myself motivated. * [03:57] The essence of temptation bundling is taking something you should do but may have a long term reward and not be super appealing at the moment, and bundle it with something you really want to do right now. * [05:01] In the foundational research study led by professor Katy Milkman, participants agreed to have their iPods locked up at the gym so they could only access them when they went to work out. They exercised more and were happier about it. * [06:10] A slight change in routine can upend newly forming habits and make them hard to start up again if you aren’t careful, so it is important to keep that all in mind as you set up your own temptation bundling techniques and timelines. * [07:26] Here’s another great thing about temptation bundling: pretty much anything can be a candidate for the bundle, and what you set up doesn’t necessarily need to be what someone else would want or need. * [09:04] Temptation bundling uses a “now” activity to help achieve a longer-term goal and overcome time discounting. * [09:37] Most multitasking doesn’t work well. As you are likely going to be looking for ways to implement this for your work goals (at least some of the time), I don’t want you to feel limited by needing to only use this while doing two things at once. * [10:19] To help to find your candidates for temptation bundling start by looking for something you love to do in your spare time. * [11:55] The two items that you want to bundle don’t have to be related. Choose any reward and tie to the action ahead of time (download your freebie worksheet here to get started). * [12:56] Temptation bundling is everywhere. You just need to find the cheese to your own personal life broccoli and you’ll be achieving goals left and right. * [13:08] Melina’s closing reflections. Thanks for listening.

If you’ve ever decided not to apply for a job because you didn’t have 100 percent of the requirements, you may want to revise your strategy. Employers know that there is no perfect candidate for the jobs they advertise. You might be the best applicant with only 60-70 percent of the skills required. But how do you explain the lack of certain skills in an interview? Find Your Dream Job guest Eric B. Horn suggests assuring the hiring manager that you are willing to pursue training and further education if necessary. Eric also shares how to know when the lack of specific skills is a deal-breaker.

Resources in This Episode: * Pick up a copy of Eric’s book, “How Professional is Your Development,” (https://amzn.to/2O6MZWj) to learn about his mistakes after college graduation and how you can avoid them. * You can avoid the resume pitfalls we consistently see job seekers make with my resource: Don't Make These 8 Killer Resume Mistakes (https://resume.macslist.org/). In this guide, I’ll show you how to avoid the most common errors and get employers to take a second look at your resume.
