Behavioural Change?-You need a Protractor, Aircraft and Earthworms.

Recidivism means literally “a falling back” and usually implies “into bad habits.” It comes from the Latin word recidivus, which means “recurring.”

Recidivism is the reason only about 5% of diet programs are successful, and also why New Year’s resolutions fail to make it into February.

In this video Peter contemplates how Protractors, Aircraft and Earthworms speak to the challenge of behavioural change.

    Hi Sandra,
    Thanks for your loyal following of my rambling life.
    So much has changed since last I saw you and Ian and I wondered if Klipfontein was still available for a weekend getaway.
    Would be great to catch up
    Perhaps would be more private.
