This episode is about habits and how we build and create them. Listen to find out what our tendencies are and how we use them to make our language routines.

  • What motivates you to do things?
  • What motivates you to keep going?
  • Do you set yourself goals and always meet them? Or do you hate goals?
  • Are you likely to spend weeks just looking for the perfect textbook before you start?
  • Or are goals only meaningful when others set them for you?
  • Or do you only set them when they make sense?

So many questions! And in this podcast, we promise you some proper answers.


In the episode, we dove deep into the Four Tendencies Framework developed by Gretchen Rubin, which is all about how you motivate yourself to keep going and to do things.
