The Power of Habit

The Power of Habit by Charles DuhiggOne of the best books I read back in 2012 was The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. You can see my review here. It’s now out in paperback, and I have a copy.

More importantly, I have decided that it’s time to change one habit.

ONE.

Why just one?

Habits have enormous power in our lives. And Duhigg explains that “A huge body of research has shown that small wins have enormous power, an influence disproportionate to the accomplishments of the victories themselves.”

Why is this? Because one small win often precipitates a cascade of other small wins and changes.

It’s time for a series of small wins.

Over the next few weeks I’m going to be re-reading THE POWER OF HABIT and applying the insights.

What am I going to change?

Saying no to all the things I want to do at 9:30 PM and getting my keister into bed. So I can enjoy a full night’s sleep. And all the benefits that flow from that.

Please feel free to join me in a quest for one small change.
