More About the Author
I'm pleased to share with you that The Pressure Paradox (a sequel of sorts) to The Habit Factor is now LIVE! You may have to search for it as it doesn't appear Amazon has linked it yet to my author page. I encourage you to preview both books, "LOOK INSIDE" either from the paperback version (it's the best for previewing). Doing so should give you a good sense of the intent and "flavor" of these books-- in essence providing a clear path to the most efficient and effective way to achieve your goals.
RE: The Habit Factor:
There is a brilliant foreword by a modern-day hero, Roz Savage, and you are able to read the entire Prologue.
The book is designed to help people (YOU) achieve their goals much faster and with greater predictability by appreciating and applying the might and force of HABIT. In doing so, they are sure to broaden their perspective and integrate several fields of knowledge: Science, Philosophy and Spirituality -- all integral to goal achievement. The book details a very specific practice and methodology -- one that utilizes something we are calling Habit Alignment Technology™.
THE TWO-MINUTE BACKGROUND:
As an overworked entrepreneur, Grunburg set out to establish some balance and clarity in his life by attempting a "bucket list" (lifestyle/non-work related) item. The goal was to enter an elite paddleboarding race and complete a 32-mile open-ocean paddle -- an event known as the Catalina Classic. He later applied the very same technique to complete another major goal, an Ironman-distance triathlon. Both were successfully accomplished, yet he had no prior experience or base knowledge -- no paddleboard, no road bike, not even running shoes.
He shared the methodology with a group of fellow entrepreneurs who were looking to achieve their own BIG goals. Before long, the group was sharing terrific feedback about the process and were experiencing incredible results for themselves; from doubling company revenues to losing weight and even surfing a dream 30'+ wave (story is in the book), just to name a few.
Their progress and success demonstrated that ANYONE who was COMMITTED to following this methodology would achieve their goals. He parlayed their feedback and experience and turned it into the mobile app which today helps tens of thousands around the world. The app shares the same name as the book and is available for iPhone/iPod and Android. The app has been a perennial best-selling Productivity app and has received unique acclaim by PhD's, Top Personal development trainers and coaches. The app was even recognized by Mashable.com as one of the "Top Eight iPhone App for Self-Help" and iTunes has featured the app numerous times in the UK, Australia and US stores. More recently, Lifehacker.com (another top productivity blog) featured Grunburg's presentation at TEDx by running the post, "Achieve Your Goals More Easily by Creating Related, Sustainable Habits".
The more Grunburg researched HABIT as the SOLE subject matter, the more seemingly magical habit became. His studies revealed that many of the world's greatest minds of their respective eras; Aristotle, Confucius, Ben Franklin, William James, Darwin, (to name a few) professed the omnipotent force of HABIT! Yet, today, ironically and for the most part, habit evokes a negative connotation (as in smoking, drinking or drugs) and in the rare instances when habit is featured positively, it is always in a set number or list, as in "X" number of habits. Lists of positive habits can be helpful but without the fundamental understanding as to WHY habit is so powerful, one fails to truly grasp its true nature, significance and perhaps most importantly, how HABIT relates to the subconscious mind.
WILL THIS BOOK HELP YOU?
If you have ever failed to achieve or COMPLETE your goals or are looking for something to get you motivated and started, chances are The Habit Factor® is the book for you. Again, "LOOK INSIDE" to decide for yourself. When you commit to this methodology you are certain to enjoy the same success as others from around the world!
Best of luck and thanks again for visiting!
