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.

Not recomended

I don't recommend. Obvious suggestions don't provide any insight. I wish I had the time back.

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.

Motivational and concrete in ideas and actions

I purchased S.J.Scotts first version of this book and was able to use many of his ideas
This book is a big step forward with more specific helpful ideas and plans to organize and accomplish goals.
I recommend it for anyone who struggles with too much to do, too little time, who needs a blueprint to help guide priorities and outcomes.
This has helped me feel better about my daily to do list and not feel overwhelmed.

I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

I would have purchased it anyway!

Gets you rethinking ways to improve your habits

What made the experience of listening to Habit Stacking the most enjoyable?

The most enjoyable part of Habit Stacking which also helped better understand the content was S.J. Scott's personal experience in his own journey stacking the habits bit by bit resulting in a healthier and happier version of himself.

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

Habit Stacking can be compared to 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life, though in this case, they are essentially gifts to yourself that also benefit others in the long term.

Which character – as performed by Greg Zarcone – was your favorite?

S.J. Scott, the author, I guess would be my favorite "character" as he described his personal experiences with habit stacking, which made it more personal and story like.

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

I need to start incorporating the habit of more directly telling my parents I love them on a more consistent basis. In fact, that was the first concept introduced in the book.

Any additional comments?

I definitely recommend listening to it, as Greg Zarcone speaks clearly and the ideas you get from Habit Stacking can start you on your own journey of a better self by merely changing one small habit at a time. On top of that, it comes with bonus material that frees you from having to take notes of links by going to the book notes S.J. Scott was nice enough to include with the book. My main suggestion would be to include a concise checklist of all the habits in pdf format to make it easier to remember and then chose which habits to follow. The book was just released last month, and he did say he will add more content so that may still happen later. Definitely, not a detractor from the book. Give it a listen! I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a review.
