Uprooting Your Habits, both good-ones and bad-ones, takes considerable commitment!  I’m personally working on replacing the word “but” with “and.”

The word but may trigger a negative reaction because it sounds like I’m counteracting one’s proposal.

The word and sounds like I’m adding or complimenting their suggestion.

Example:

“Mark, your proposal sounds amazing.  We’ll be able to satisfy the employees and generate more sales.  And it may entail a bigger budget that seems a little out of our reach.”

You first acknowledge Mark for all the benefits of his proposal (that it will be able to satisfy the employees and create more sales).  Then you wittingly mention the objection at the end (that it will necessitate a larger budget, which the company may not approve).

The second sentence begins with and not but so the objection is perceived to be more of an additional comment rather than a criticism.

Using an illustrator/cartoonist, Darren Hardy’s message today is Uprooting Your Bad Habits.

Most people can relate to this story.  Swallowing medicine is easier with a spoonful of sugar!!!

Inch by inch it’s a cinch … 😉
