How it works (our standard programmes)
You’ll start with a simple online questionnaire that asks about your behaviours and habits. That allows us to tailor your Do experience precisely for you. If you’re on a work programme, the questions might be about your habits in the office. If you’re on a health programme, we might ask about your exercising or eating habits. You just answer as honestly as you can.
Then we’ll start sending your Do’s – small powerful actions – by SMS text and/or email. Each one is designed to tempt you outside your comfort zone and to try out new behaviours. Unlike almost every other kind of ‘training’ or ‘course’, we don’t ask you to think or learn. We want you to DO. We believe that it’s only by doing that you can bring about real change.
Each Do is a small, manageable thing you can do in an ordinary day. But change is never easy. That’s why we give you your very own Do Zone, that connects you with other people on your programme. See what they did. Tell them what you’ve done. Upload photos. Share experiences. Enjoy being part of a movement.
At the end of your programme, we’ll invite you to fill in another simple questionnaire. That will show you what’s changed. It’s great to see the progress you’ve made. By now you’ll have seen the wonderful things that can happen when you do something different. So why stop? Keep going on your own and enjoy a richer, more fulfilling life from now on.
