Technical or Adaptive?
Nancy Mehlert, MS
Having trouble getting a new lifestyle habit established?
A technical challenge has a straightforward solution. Need the remote control to work? Read the instructions and do what it says and the problem is solved. But this approach does not work for lifestyle challenges. In fact, you can’t address adaptive challenges with a technical solution, though we often try!
Lifestyle changes are adaptive challenges and can only be met by transforming our mindset and changing our behavior.
Adaptive challenges require a change of mind – a change in how we think.
