Increase the Probability of Achieving Your Outcomes with This Simple Perception Hack

  • Here are some questions to support you:
  • Do you know anyone who enjoys doing that activity?
  • What would it be like to do the task if you were them?
  • What is it like when you imagine yourself taking that action with joy?
  • What else can you do to support yourself in making that task more enjoy-able?
  • When you bring joy to that process how much does it increase the probability of you taking action?
  1. Think of a big goal you’ve been wanting to accomplish but haven’t been taking action towards with the quality you would like.
  2. Think of a leveraged behavior that, if you were to take it more consistently, would bring you closer towards your desired end state.
  3. Imagine taking that action with a state of joy.
  4. Practice this regularly until your default becomes to feel pleasure when thinking about taking the desired action.
