The Best Ideas in 2,000 Years

By Marty Nemko

Surveying 2,000 years of self-change techniques, U.C. professor, Robert Epstein found three that are particularly powerful yet simple-- the 3 M's:

Modify your environment. Example: Want to spend more time sending thank-you notes? Put some on your desk, more by your TV.

Monitor Your Behavior. Example: Want to stop saying, "Um"? Carry a golfstroke counter. Each time you catch yourself saying, "um," click the counter.

Make Commitments. Example: Want to learn that software? Daily, tell a friend whether you spent enough time on the program that day.
