An excerpt from Stacey’s review:

Your appearance, income, weight, social status, friendships, and career are all a combined result of one thing: your habits. Your habits can make you or break you, and for most of us they do a little bit of both.

In Charles Duhigg’s book, “The Power of Habit: Why We do What We do in Life & Business,” he explains how habits are created, why they are sometimes broken, and how savvy businesses are capitalizing on habits to boost profits.

According to “The Power of Habit,” when you establish good habits, those habits trickle into other areas of your life. For example, statistically, people who go to the gym three times a week are more likely to eat healthier and are more likely to have positive, healthy, relationships with others. Those who write down their food intake three times a week are more likely to lose weight than dieters who do not.

Habits trickle through your life, your business, and your relationships. My recruiting habits have trickled down into other parts of my company, and understanding this concept is key. We can make major changes in our businesses and lives without having to establish fifty new habits overnight. In fact, we may only need to change one habit and the positive effects of that single change can have major impact in many other areas.

If you are truly serious about reforming your habits so that you can accomplish all of your wildest dreams, then definitely check out the book. It will give you a blue print for creating and breaking habits.
