Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success | [Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan, Al Switzler]

Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success

A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on. For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?

Publisher's Summary

A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on.

For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?

Based upon the latest research in a number of psychological and medical fields, the authors of Change Anything will show that traditional will-power is not necessarily the answer to these strivings, that people are affected in their behaviors by far more subtle influences. Change Anything shows how individuals can come to understand these powerful and influential forces, and how to put these forces to work in a positive manner that brings real and meaningful results.

The authors present an array of everyday examples that will change and truly empower you to reexamine the way you go about your business and life.

    "Great encouragement to take control"

    Loved this read! It was a required book for a class I am taking and I am so glad it was. I look forward to applying the 6 sources of influence to many different behaviors I struggle with.

    "Definitely worth a list"

    Like their earlier book, Influencer, Change Anything is an interesting and somewhat actionable self-help book that, if I were seriously committed to changing something about myself, I would probably find more useful. They do make change sound like a lot of work, and there's nothing I currently feel that desperate to change to make it worthwhile. That said, I've listened to this book several times and will probably re-listen to it periodically (although I might be better off just keeping notes from it on an index card- the basic tenets could definitely fit on one). I do have to take a few points off for the interview at the end. While it's an interesting summary of the book, it's also a somewhat saccharine circle-jerk, and that's an unfortunate final impression for an otherwise motivating and occasionally inspiring (if periodically melodramatic) book.

    I enjoy reading fantasy, science fiction, and horror the most. To improve, I read about language, psychology, spirituality, and art. I read about computer science and business for professional reasons.

    Story
    "A good self-improvement book"

    A non-fiction book on how to improve behavior. Most examples were on conquering unhealthy habits with higher level thought, planning, and practice. Finances, relationships, diet, exercise, and addictions were described as being products of various influences. Internal personal influences and social influences were described as factors to be assessed for change. Routines for changing the patterns were described as a means of encouraging new good habits to replace old bad ones.

    I only found the specifics slightly useful, although a good review on why some habits are good for health and some aren't. I was able to abstract and generalize some good principles on the various influences though. Through the description, I was able to be more conscious of the various factors that create habits, and even dispositions and beliefs. Finally, I liked the "be your own social scientist" perspective, as that was a decided improvement over the "opponent social scientist" perspective encouraged so often on television propaganda and academic environments

    The best part of this book for me was the various case studies.

    N/A


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    The idea of altering influences in order to accomplish goals more easily.

    "Great Helpful Read"
    Would you listen to Change Anything again? Why?

    Absolutely, the strategies and information taught in this book were fantastic the first time and I anticipate them helping me even more the next go around.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Change Anything?

    Hard to say seeing as how it was a self help book, but there were several memorable and eye opening statements and I loved how it was all backed up with academic research. The whole thing was memorable.


    Which character – as performed by Joseph Grenny – was your favorite?

    There aren't really different characters, just the narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yeah, it was shocking in its ability to portray new and helpful information, and helped me realize that I have approached change in my life in exactly the wrong way for a long time.


    Any additional comments?

    I have absolutely no doubt that the tactics and strategies taught in this book will work. I've read quire a number of self help books and I feel like this one took elements from many of them and formed it into a cohesive and effective strategy for enacting change or overcoming addiction in ones life.

    Probably you are going to hear things you already know but it is a valuable systematization of research and practice on personal change. I highly recommend it.
