In Habit Design, we balance our research and discussion between personal success stories in sustainable behavior-change (similar to QS's "show & tell" format) and the design of solutions and services which bring about such personal experiences. This is the continuation of the previous meetup which addressed the latter of the two with Nir Eyal....

Nir Eyal is a contributing writer for TechCrunch, Forbes, Psychology Today, and a frequent speaker at industryconferences, universities, and Fortune 500 companies (presentations available here). He's also a mentor at several incubators including 500 Startups, Founders Institute,Innovation Endeavors, and theThiel Fellowship. As an entrepreneur, Nir has sold two technology companies since 2003. For most of his career, Nir has worked in the video gaming and advertising industries where he learned, applied, and at times rejected, the techniques used to motivate and manipulate users. His writing helps companies create behaviors that benefit their users, while educating people on how to build healthful habits in their own lives. Nir graduated from Emory University and Stanford GSB.

Habit Design® is the largest crowdsourced training community sharing best practices in developing sustainable daily habits that last beyond 100 days. Our goal is to spawn local "habit labs" across the world; over 100,000 members have participated representing 500+ companies, universities, non-profits, and other organizations.

We synthesize applied research across a wide range of habit designers including entrepreneurs, Wellness companies & professionals, non-profits, trainers, coaches, academics, and everyday enthusiasts. Some methods, tools, & frameworks we've covered include Behavior-Change Psychology, Captology (Persuasive Technology), Game Mechanics & Techniques, Behavioral Economics, Sociology, etc.

Colleagues that have shared their research with us include Dr. BJ Fogg, Leo Babauta (Zenhabits.net), New York Times reporter Charles Duhigg (author of "The Power of Habit"), Gretchen Rubin (author "The Happiness Project"), Dr. David Sobel (Kaiser Permanente), Dr. Kelly McGonigal (author, "The Willpower Instinct"), Dr. Peter Gollwitzer (Head, NYU Motivation Lab), and many others. By integrating these crowdsourced best-practices, we advance innovation in our community.
