As a researcher, speaker, trainer, teacher and leader I’m confronted by many with the adage “why we do what we do.” Habits have been defined by the confluence of knowledge, skill and desire. Knowledge being the “what-to” or “why-to“ do something. Desire being the “want-to” and skill being the “know-how”. Think of it as a tripod for a camera. The mount the camera sits on is essentially our habits. With out the three legs ones habits are mismatched and unpredictable. The great news is no one can exist without the three-legs. But many of us have bad
habits. Influenced by leaders, advertising or superiors and these habits are simply learned behaviour. Therefore one can change their habit, driven by desire, identifying change and learning how to do so. What habits do you need or want to change?
