I had expected this to be more of a how-to for habit change. This was not the book I expected it to be, but I’m glad I read it. The stories are interesting and there is an appendix at the end with a framework and guide to using the ideas. There is a lot more to the book, but if you want to cut to the very high-level summary of how to work on your own habits, here you go:
- Identify the routine
- Experiment with rewards
- Isolate the cue
- Have a plan
The author is Charles Duhigg and the full title of the book is The Power of Habit. Why we do what we do in life and business.
