(0:25) Amy, Sara & Jesse are in NYC! | Gretchen Fan Club

(3:16) “We’re going to meet Gretchen Rubin!” The moment they found out.
The empty shelf : one shelf in the house to help you feel good about not having too much “stuff".

(6:01) Clean houses | Obligers vs. Upholders

(6:57) Retaking the Four Tendencies Quiz
Holding yourself accountable based on how you proceed through life.

(9:55) Instructions | Choose the answer that happens across all facets of your life.

(12:01) Question 1: Have you kept a New Year’s resolution where you weren’t accountable to anyone?
Jesse | Self-Perceived Laziness vs Inner Accountability
Sara | Resolutions all-year-long!
Amy | Holding resolutions close to the vest AT the New Year or the first of anything. Amy lives for a fresh start.

(17:48) Question 2: Which statement best describes your view about commitments to yourself?
Sara | Waffling between two answers, real-time phone-a-friend.
Jesse | Other people counting on her makes her more likely to hold a commitment.
Amy | Yoga studio, paying money as an outside accountability source.
Amy holds commitments in the same regard no matter who she is accountable to.

(26:13) Question 3: At times we feel frustrated by ourselves, are you most like to feel frustrated because…
Amy | Amy can’t violate the rules even when she wants to. Tightening: refusing to stop a new habit
Jesse | Can take time for other people but not for herself.
Sara | Can’t break habits or break rules even if she wants to. It’s a spectrum, obsessive to healthy

(31:47) Question 4: When you formed a healthy habit in the past what helped you stick to it?
**Fire-Engine Sirens throughout this question

Sara | Good at sticking to habits
Jesse | Doesn’t choose to bind herself to a particular choice of action, unless it’s bananas for Frankie.
**Fire Department Arrives

(37:23) Question 5: If people complain about your habits you’d be least surprised to hear them say…
Jesse | She’s good at taking time to do things others request but not for herself.
Amy | Sticks to good habits that matter to her, always.
Sara | Taking time for others not for herself. Finds herself showing up to places due to the wrong motivations.

(42:02) Question 6:Which description fits you best…
Amy | Wants to say “asks necessary questions” but finds herself to be super disciplined even when it doesn’t make sense.
Sara | Puts others first, mostly (10% discipline)
Jesse | She refuses to be bossed by others
