This month I decided to watch the video interviews on CreativeLive by Chase Jarvis and get some daily inspiration, motivation and wisdom. I’ve decided to blog about the series, logging my thoughts and takeaways…
Day 27 creative genius – Gretchen Rubin.
I’m a big fan of Gretchen Rubin. I read her books and listen to her podcast. Her research is fascinating and I find myself always learning something new about myself and life as it is. She’s also lovely to listen to and oddly enough, I find that her voice reminds me of Elizabeth Gilbert, another one of my fave writers… so it’s all good!
In this interview, Rubin goes through her general topics of interest and her research, sharing insights on why it is we do and react the was we do. You should definitely check out her website if you are interested in the psychology and science of human tendencies and why we do what we do!
I was really stopped by the section when she talked about how goals are great, but they are not habits. And it’s important to distinguish climbing that mountain to get to xyz goal… or wanting something to be consistent, which is a habit. That which we don’t even think about anymore, a habit is just done! I had not thought about it in this way before and it’s really changing the way I approach to do’s, goals and life changes!
