I'm very grateful to Dr Allistair Rylatt for alerting me to this article from Huffington Post. As a leadership coach, with responsibility for helping people to beat their personal challenges, to change something in their lives, I'm usually asked: "How long is this going to take". I've always replied confidently: "The 'experts' argue that it will take 3 months to change a habit".

To be honest, I've never had any evidence to support this response and just grateful that people have been reassured that they don't need to look for overnight success.

Now there is evidence and the timeframe is a little less: just 66 days. Good intentions really can translate into change.
