Publisher's Summary

Want more time to work on important goals? Need to build a specific habit? Struggling to change your life?

Imagine what life would be like if you started every morning with small actions that created a chain reaction of positive benefits throughout your life.

You eat a healthy breakfast, have a great conversation with your loved ones, and then begin your workday focusing on the important tasks. Then, throughout the day, you complete other habits that positively impact your top goals. I guarantee you'd feel more fulfilled, get more accomplished, and have a better direction for your career.

All of this is possiple when you add dozens of small changes to your daily routine. These habits don't require much effort. In fact:

  • Most of these habits only take five minutes or less to complete
  • And all this can be done when you follow a strategy known as "Habit Stacking ™"
  • One Routine + Multiple Habits = Habit Stacking

We all know it's not easy to add multiple new habits to your day. But what you might not realize is it's fairly easy to build a single new routine. The essence of habit stacking is to take a series of small changes and create a ritual that you follow on a daily basis.

Habit stacking works because you eliminate the stress of trying to change too many things at once. Your goal is to simply focus on a single routine that only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Within this routine is a series of actions (or small changes). All you have to do is to create a checklist and follow it every single day.

Useful - as far as list go

The book is useful as it gives a lot of examples into very good habits to have...depending on your own experience. It has provided a logically valid reason on how to get into the habit of following successful habits.

The problem for me is that, although the habits are good, they only go 'skin deep'. True change also requires addressing mindsets and beliefs to be truly effective. As such, the book offers change that will not apply to everyone because of this reason.

I heard the book in audible. This book relies heavily on lists and references and thus made the experience a bit complicated and boring at times.

Solid, practical, and useful

This book isn't just lists of what to do.

It provides you with the HOW: HOW to individualize this action plan. HOW to deal with the inevitable derailment. And HOW to make these new habits permanent.

Regardless of how you're wired, this book has enough different ideas and suggestions, so you're bound to find what works for your individual situation.

That's the major difference between this and other get-it-done books.

Very useful. Very realistic. Very practical.

Listen & Bookmark then Implement

SJ Scott classifies and coordinates actions we can take to achieve what we all really want: To be Happy!

From "when's the best time for...", how much time, the hows plus the whys, the upside of the habit and the downside of not doing it.
There is a real life experience when even the habit master doesn't want to do an activity, run, and explains what happens when we do what we don't want to do in the moment yet have the discipline just to start. The answer is in your book.

Deserves rereads to pick up some more habits. Being healthy and wealthy aren't small achievements to do learn at any age.

Interesting Method

The majority of this book was full of good information. I felt as though the concept of utilizing current habits to anchor new baby's l habits was useful. As someone who struggles with forming and maintaining habits, the idea of creating a routine that you can add new habits to is genius. I can actually use this method, it's actionable. The list of 127 habits was difficult to get through (I just played that part at 2X speed) but reading it would probably be easier than listening. Overall, it's a great tool that I believe I will actually use.

GREAT JAN 2018 MOTIVATION

What did you love best about Habit Stacking?

This is a practicable resource to be a vehicle for maintaining the skill sets to be successful in every area of your life. Most concepts are not new, but I like how the concepts are organized that turn into a step by step process to design good habits in your life.

What other book might you compare Habit Stacking to and why?

The Power of Habit

What about Greg Zarcone’s performance did you like?

His concepts are concise and he does not over explain points with long stories.

Habit Stacking Wow!

I'm going through the book. I'll dig into it later as I want to go through The Anti-Procrastination Habit first.

A Practical Guide!

Any additional comments?

Scott does a great job laying out his methodology of habit stacking. Although not a new concept, creating a new habit is certainly an area many struggle with and could benefit from this guide. Without a doubt if you implement this strategy and follow his lead you will get more done. This book is an easy read and well laid out. All of his support documentation is a great bonus. I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a review.

Remarkably average

I often felt like I had read a section before. Then, he will cite the source that I had read. Some new information and approaches were here compared to other, more prominent books. However, I felt like the first half of the book was literally all that you would need. Could have been half as long and a better book.
