How to get “unstuck” by chaining anchors

  1. Identify the negative state (Eg. Procrastination)
  2. Decide on the desired state (Eg. Motivation)
  3. Design the chain: Decide on what intermediate states are needed to bridge the gap between the negative and desired state. Present stateàIntermediate State #1àIntermediate State #2àDesired State
  4. Anchor each state separately with a unique stimulus, introducing a break state between each anchor.
  5. Chain the anchors by firing each anchor as the previous one reaches its peak.
  6. Test the chain by firing the first anchor and observe what happens.
