Priming your behavior ensures success and happiness.

Being free to create and independent to relate, my “soul mate” and I often go for coffee and pastry or an occasional breakfast wherever we land.  We love to talk about life, events and friends. Upon returning home to chores, office to boring phone calls and classroom or workshop to face clients or students who can’t “get it,” I prime my motivation for success and happiness.

Choose an activity that you absolutely love to do. Do that activity first, from half an hour to even three, upon returning from your coffee break. This  “primacy effect” (first impression that sets the tone) is a “priming behavior” for the rest of the day or evening. In my case, I love to post on my blogs, so that is what I do right now for half an hour before I move to another office to work on my tax papers.

Priming your behavior is a powerful motivational force. As a teacher, arrange to teach your favorite class or subject first in the morning. Doing the thing you love first will get you going to do the chores. And, if you are smart reward yourself also at the “recency stage.”  Many handsome young bachelors  and beautiful sexy girls don’t get it that a “radiance date” can prime a whole month before and after for happiness and success.

Now I am ready for the taxes.
