Ben Austin, the creator of Stop, Start, Do joins us to talk about finding the motivation to change your habits.  


  • Maintaining morale in difficult periods of our lives

  • Understanding the difference between blame and responsibility

  • Getting back on the path to what we’re destined to do

  • Why people close to us resist our changes

  • The power of tracking and measuring your progress

  • The motivational seesaw technique

  • The stop the start do framework for changing habits

  • The problem with trying to change too many things at once

  • Developing systems to eliminate decision fatigue


Knowing what to do is not the hard part, actually doing it is

It’s fundamental to have some sort of system to track your personal development progress

Your environment doesn’t need to crush you to change

There’s a real difference between I failed and I’m a failure

You work towards becoming the ideal version of yourself but never actually achieve it
