Prompting Change

Here is this week’s 1% MORE—4 short prompts using Mind over Tech’s M.O.R.E framework to trigger tiny improvements to your digital habits.

This week's theme is: 🎯 Purpose

Mindsets and habits to identify and pursue what is important to you in your digital life.

BJ Fogg, Founder of Stanford’s Behaviour Design Lab, on the power of an elegant prompt:

“Prompts might seem simple on the surface, but they can be powerful in their simplicity (that’s the definition of elegance). An effective Prompt for a small behaviour can lead people to perform harder behaviours. For example, if I can prompt someone to walk for 10 minutes a day, that person may then buy some walking shoes without any external triggering or intervention. That’s elegant influence because the walker doesn’t feel like she’s being compelled to buy shoes. It’s a natural chain of events that an effective Prompt puts into motion.”

Be curious about how making even small changes to your digital habits can feel impossible without a prompt to act differently in the moment.

What if you could transform your device from something that distracts you into a tool that actively supports the adoption of a carefully chosen new habit?


an invitation to disrupt your digital habits

Set up automations that use triggers such as time, location, or opening an app to help you become more aware of your habits and begin to make a change.

Until next week,
