SHOW NOTES: Dr. Jon Finn discusses his book "The Habit Mechanic" and ways to supercharge your leadership skills. Jon uses insights from psychology, behavioral science, neuroscience, and top-performing athletes to help organizations develop outstanding leaders. Listen for three action items you can use today. 
Dr. Jon Finn wrote his best-selling book ‘The Habit Mechanic’ (which took him over 20 years) because his life’s mission is to help people to be their best in the challenging modern world. This book is proven to change lives. People have said it is a ‘MANUAL FOR LIFE’, and a ‘TOOL KIT FOR SUCCESS’. It contains over 30 self-improvement tools.Dr. Jon Finn founded the award-winning Tougher Minds consultancy and has three psychology-related degrees, including a Ph.D. He has worked in performance psychology, resilience, and leadership science for over 20 years.Tougher Minds uses cutting-edge insights from psychology, behavioral science, neuroscience, and world champions to help organizations develop “Habit Mechanics” and “Chief Habit Mechanics”—resilient people, outstanding leaders, and world-class teams.Having trained and coached over 10,000 people, Dr. Finn, and his colleagues, work with global businesses, high-growth startups, individuals, elite athletes, coaches and teams, leading educational institutes, families, the UK government, and think tanks.Key QuestionsHow do you Manage your Happiness?QUOTE: (8:50) There are three core ingredients. One is you’ve got to get your brain working properly. So that means you’ve got to get good sleep, a good diet, good exercise, and also have really good, positive, personal relationships. That’s going to help your brain work really well. The next ingredient is you’ve got to have, in scientific language, some spend some time doing hedonic things. So getting pleasure is giving in to short-term gratification, but the third ingredient, which is harder than ever to attend is eudaimonia which is working towards doing and achieving meaningful goals.Now we call this habit mechanic development. So we’ve got to balance those three things outWhat is your favorite coaching question?A: “How can you make big improvements in your life quickly?”QUOTE: (19:56)  The surprising truth is you are getting better at the things that you don’t want to get better. When you worry, you develop more wires in your brain for worrying. When you beat yourself up, you develop more wires in your brain for beating yourself up.So the realization, that we are actually on autopilot the vast, vast majority of the time is a huge insight for most people because we are not designed to think of ourselves in that way. We are designed to think about the external world, not what is going on inside our own brains. And when we just start to get a little bit of insight just by turning on our prefrontal cortex a little bit more and doing a little bit more intelligent self watching, then we can start to make some big improvements very quickly. If we start to consistently do things a little bit differently and then build on this idea that we’re going to get good at what we practice, we’ve got to recognize what are the things that influence and  make it easier for us to practice the things that we’d like to practice
On this episode you will learn:✔︎  How Dr. Finn, from Leeds, UK, took three psychology related degrees to inform his work with The Habit Mechanic and his Tougher Minds Consulting Firm.✔︎ What Dr. Finn discovered made Roger Bannister's training more "efficient and effective" than his competitors.✔︎ How he has used his Habit Mechanic Model to develop high performing sports teams.✔︎ Simple and easy ways that we can all fine-tune our habit-building muscles.✔︎ Strategies to teach others how to do the same.✔︎ Unique visuals for improving time management, and overcoming obstacles.Dr. Finn, who founded the award-winning Tougher Minds Consultancy, and has three psychology-related degrees, has been working in the field of resilience, performance, and leadership science for over 20 years, and through his work, has uncovered WHY people fail, while trying their very best.For returning guests, welcome back, and for those who are new here, I’m Andrea Samadi, author, and educator, with a passion for learning, understanding difficult concepts, and breaking them down so that we can all use and apply the most current research to improve our productivity and results in our schools, sports environments, and modern workplaces. On today’s EPISODE #210, we will explore Dr. Finn’s cutting-edge insights from psychology, behavioral science, neuroscience, and world champions that helps organizations develop “Habit Mechanics” and “Chief Habit Mechanics” (we will uncover the difference between the two) building resilient people, outstanding leaders, and world-class teams.  I’ve been looking for a book that bridges the science with all of the strategies we’ve been covering on this podcast, and today we will connect the dots with theory, practice and results, as we ALL learn how to “fine-tune our brain, and supercharge how we live, work and lead.”Before we meet Dr. Finn, I have to give you a bit more of his background, because when reading his book, I was floored with how he connected the research to habit building, with examples that we can all understand and remember.Dr. Finn and his colleagues have a collective experience of over 100 years in helping people, leaders, teams and organizations build better habits. They have worked extensively in the highest levels of elite sport, advised the Government and think tanks, had their work featured in The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph, People Management and T.E.S, published peer-reviewed papers and popular books within the area of performance psychology, and helped 10,000s of people be their best more often.
