how do we makenew behaviorseasier to do? B = MAT * *In the Fogg Behavior Model, one way you can make behaviorsmore likely to happen is by increasing a person’s ability to dothem (making them easier to do).There are 2 basic strategies for making behaviors easier: Shapingand Sequencing. Shaping involves a gradual progression ofbehavior (slowly increasing in difficulty), whereas Sequencinginvolves a specific series of small, achievable steps that cascadeto the desired outcome. Here are examples of each from myown life.
Shaping Map: Long-Distance Cycling Bike to gym (15 min one way/ 3.75 mi) Davis Bike Loop (60 min/ 12 mi) Bike to Dixon (+ beyond) (1.5-1.75 hrs/ 25-30 mi) (got a new, faster bike) Bike to Winters (2hrs/ 35 mi) Bike to Lake Berryessa (3.5 hrs/ 57 mi) Bike to Lagoon Valley (4.5 hrs/ 72 mi) Bike to Folsom Dam (5.25 hrs/ 82 mi) Bike to Vallejo Ferry station (w/ 30 lbs gear, wind, hills) (5hrs one way/ 70 mi)Kelly Schmutte
