"When you're aware of a habit, you're in control". The book unfolded a significant part of my daily life, gave a powerful tool to form my life as I have always wanted to but failed so many times. I'll listen again.
Charles Duhigg brings together some fascinating research that helps you understand what makes habits work, how to find the inherent cues and rewards, and then finally how to change the habits you want. Through a diverse set of examples from professional sports, home cleaning products, gambling and alcohol addiction he provides a valuable lesson in the power of habits in life and business. I should make it a habit to listen to this book every six months to remind me. I loved it!
This book has to be one of the most important books in my life. Though I just finished it, I can already clearly understand it's usefulness.
Don't skip it.
I enjoy the variety of stories it tells, gives it a more well-rounded point of view.
Personally, I would say that there are probably too many stories to just read through, which is why I say this book would be best to listen why in the car or traveling.
The pointers are very helpful. I will apply what I've learned to my everyday life. I need to stop drinking alcohol everyday just for leisure, this book is helping me reach that goal.
Loved it so much, I listened to it twice! Great insight on individual habits as well as organizational habits. Everyone could benefit from this book. Great research done with a variety of businesses and industries.
