The purpose of the present study was to investigate effects of implementation intentions on taking one multivitamin tablet, everyday, for 2 weeks, among individuals who endorsed self-concordant and self-discordant forms of motivation. A 2 (implementation intentions: yes, no) × 3 (motivation: self-concordance, self-discordance, control) experimental design was adopted with university students being exposed to manipulations of implementation intentions, self-concordance, and self-discordance… Expand
The two sides of goal intentions: Intention self-concordance and intention strength as predictors of physical activity
TLDR
Findings support the idea that intention strength and self-concordance are two critical facets of a goal intention that need to be considered in the prediction of physical activity participation. Expand
More or better: Do the number and specificity of implementation intentions matter in increasing physical activity?
Objectives: To examine 1) the specificity and number of implementation intentions people form for increasing physical activity, 2) the relation between motivation and the number and specificity ofExpand
The effectiveness of an implementation intentions intervention for fruit and vegetable consumption as moderated by self-schema status
TLDR
The moderating effect of healthy eater self-schema status in regard to the effectiveness of an implementation intentions intervention for vegetable consumption among undergraduates who were not initially eating at least 3 servings of vegetables daily is replicated. Expand
The influence of planning, support and self-concordance on goal progress and job satisfaction
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to test the combined influence of working towards self-concordant goals with goal planning and supervisory support on goal progress and job satisfaction.Expand
Automatic processes and self-regulation of illness
TLDR
An agenda for future research is outlined in which health psychology accepts the challenge posed by the interplay of the reflective and associative systems in promoting effective self-regulation of illness. Expand
The strength model of self-regulation failure and health-related behaviour
Abstract Successful self-regulation is associated with adherence to health-related behaviour in many domains. In contrast, self-regulatory failure is linked to poor adherence and drop-out. ThisExpand
Development And Evaluation Of An Intervention Based On The Theory Of Planned Behaviour In Promoting Leisure Time Physical Activity Participation
Building upon tenets of the theory of planned behavior, the present study examined whether a an intervention program that aimed to change control beliefs and behavioral beliefs (combined program) wasExpand
Motivation and goal self-regulation
The present thesis extends the goal striving literature by exploring personal and primed autonomous and controlled goal motivation in relation to goal-related outcomes (e.g. persistence, attainment,Expand
A Randomised Controlled Trial to Test the Effectiveness of Planning Strategies to Improve Medication Adherence in Patients with Cardiovascular Disease.
TLDR
While current findings have promise in demonstrating the conditional effects of planning interventions, there is a need to replicate these findings by manipulating planning and beliefs independently and testing their direct and interactive effects on medication adherence. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that “self-concordant” goal selection is a difficult self-perceptual skill, with important ramifications for thriving and causes of personality thriving and growth. Expand

Implementation intentions and repeated behaviour: augmenting the predictive validity of the theory of planned behaviour
Two experiments based upon Gollwitzer's (1993) concept of implementation intentions are described. In both experiments, attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioural control and intentions fromExpand
Attaining personal goals: self-concordance plus implementation intentions equals success.
TLDR
Two separate meta-analyses showing that self-concordance and implementation intentions are significantly positively associated with goal progress are included, indicating that goal self- Concords and Implementation intentions combined synergistically to facilitate goal progress. Expand
Goal striving, need satisfaction, and longitudinal well-being: the self-concordance model.
TLDR
An integrative model of the conative process, which has important ramifications for psychological need satisfaction and hence for individuals' well-being, is presented and is shown to provide a satisfactory fit to 3 longitudinal data sets and to be independent of the effects of self-efficacy, implementation intentions, avoidance framing, and life skills.

Comparing implementation intention interventions in relation to young adults’ intake of fruit and vegetables
TLDR
Results suggest that ‘if-then’ manipulations are superior in promoting behaviour change in an applied setting, providing evidence for the efficacy of implementation intentions even when experimenter demand is reduced. Expand
Testing a self-determination theory intervention for motivating tobacco cessation: supporting autonomy and competence in a clinical trial.
TLDR
The causal role of autonomy support in the internalization of autonomous motivation, perceived competence, and smoking cessation was supported and the self-determination theory intervention and process model of health behavior change for tobacco cessation was confirmed. Expand
Bolstering Implementation Plans for the Long Haul: The Benefits of Simultaneously Boosting Self-Concordance or Self-Efficacy
TLDR
The results showed that implementation plans alone did not result in greater goalProgress than a neutral condition but that the combination of implementation plans with either autonomy support or self-efficacy boosting resulted in significantly greater goal progress. Expand
Perceived locus of causality and internalization: examining reasons for acting in two domains.
TLDR
A model of perceived locus of causality (PLOC) is developed, using children's self-reported reasons for acting, and its proposed model and conceptualization are discussed with regard to intrapersonal versus interpersonal perception, internalization, cause-reason distinctions, and the significance of perceived autonomy in human behavior.

Mechanisms of implementation intention effects: the role of goal intentions, self-efficacy, and accessibility of plan components.
TLDR
The present research investigated the role of deliberative processes and accessibility of plan components as explanation for the relationship between implementation intentions and goal achievement and suggested that implementation intention effects are not explained by increased deliberation, but rather accrue from heightened accessibility of specified opportunities and strong opportunity-response links.

Self-concordance, goal attainment, and the pursuit of happiness: can there be an upward spiral?
TLDR
The self-concordance model of healthy goal striving was used to examine the motivational processes by which people can increase their level of well-being during a period of time and then maintain the gain or perhaps increase it even further during the next period oftime. Expand
Facilitating internalization: the self-determination theory perspective.
TLDR
An experiment supported the hypothesis that three facilitating contextual factors--namely, providing a meaningful rationale, acknowledging the behaver's feelings, and conveying choice--promote internalization, as evidenced by the subsequent self-regulation of behavior. Expand
