I've been trying to change things in my life and create new habits countless times on my own (start exercising regularly, eat healthier, not procrastinate and so on) but I always fail in the end. I always feel super excited when I start out and manage to do the things I set out to do for about a week or so and then, for some reason, fail, feel useless and quit.
Reading this book and using the work sheet (which you get for free by signing up to a newsletter, which in itself is very helpful too) has helped me get a good start with my new habits. I am now a lot more confident that I'll be able to keep what I've promised myself and make my habits "stick". Thanks to this book I now know how to handle the inevitable setback too so I'm not even worried about those anymore.
The book is very easy to read and it's, just as someone else pointed out, very action-oriented with clear steps to help you get started and create habits that stay with you in the long run.
I'm very happy I found this book and I highly recommend it if you want help getting rid of bad habits or create new ones.
And I tell you this book is GOOD.
For the start, I really cannot find any weak spot in it, which is uncommon, to say the least.
I don't like a science based approach. I think all too often people replace science with its new dogmas with religion trusting it blindly to solve their problems. Science can also by wrong for long time, especially when we talk about human behaviors. For example willpower research for decade or two was off the mark.
But Patrik doesn't blindly quote research and say it's the unerring oracle of truth. It's enough to read his approach to the question: "How long it takes to create a habit?” to notice his approach has a lot of common sense as well.
The book is very succinct and to the point. Zero BS and hogwash.
Despite the very meager size it covers all the aspects of habit development: how to start, how long to keep, how to monitor, etc. I'm impressed by the ideal balance between covering all that is necessary and brevity of the advice.
For science nerds the book in more than its 20% contains references to articles and research.
I'm a habit coach and I advise people on habits all the time. From now on this book will be my recommendation for beginners. It's an ideal tool if you have very little idea about creating good habits and would like to get educated fast.
PS the most valuable lesson for me is this:
not willpower but smart playing with psychology through small and consistent actions is the key. Only a little bit of willpower is needed.
