Joel Constable
Have you ever set out to achieve a personal goal only to fall short, or worse yet, not even start? If you’re like most people, you lead a busy life with many competing responsibilities and commitments. Whether you want to be a better parent, write your first book, eat more healthfully, or be more mindful, the idea of taking on a new challenge or changing your current ways of doing things can be daunting. The good news is that there is a science to success. Specifically, there is a proven set of tools and techniques that you can use in order to significantly increase the likelihood of achieving your personal goals.

Drawing upon research in psychology, behavioral economics, and the neuroscience of change, this workshop will examine why change is so difficult and introduce a step-by-step process to take you from where you are now to where you want to be. During day one, we will explore common barriers to change and why we often get sidetracked from our goals. Through personal reflection and small-group discussion, each student will identify and work toward a goal that is meaningful to them. On day two, we will reflect on our progress during the week and further refine our plans. Students will leave the workshop armed with new tools and strategies to achieve their own version of success.
