As I was working on Better Than Before, my book about habit change, I was often reminded of this old joke, about the guy looking for his wallet under the street light.
Because the fact is, if we want to find something (like a new future for ourselves), we have to look in the right place.
Even if the light is better under the streetlight, it’s no use looking there if you dropped your wallet on the dark corner.
And if you want to change your life, you need to pay attention to the habits that will help to bring about that change.
In writing Better Than Before, I discovered that it’s actually not that hard to change our habits — when we know how to do it in the way that right for us.
Have you ever talked to someone who was really looking for his or her keys in utterly the wrong place? Or have you ever found yourself doing it? It’s surprisingly easy to fall into this trap.
