Now that I have read it....I am ANGRY. What a waste of money!
I found most of the book how to make these small changes pretty basic stuff. If it was a 99 cent book I wouldn't complain, but I found most of the habits common knowledge items.
Here are 5 of Mr. Scott's "small life changes" for example:
#55 Collect Dirty Laundry
#69 Practice Simple Grooming
#84 Brush your Tongue
#85 Microwave your Sponge
You get the idea.
BLUF The author got my $7 don't let him take yours.....
On the other hand, the book lists things we can do in a way that is not convincing, mostly because the choices proposed by the author are a bit dull and the amount of time he allows for each activity does not sound right. The sum of what the author proposes (the 97 ideas) would already take you over eight hours a day.
I hope there will be a second edition, with more research, interviews, and more interesting ideas, because on the bottom line, habits are the stuff that we are made of.
This book gives me things I can do RIGHT NOW to improve my life and increase my income.
I learned who to create ...
1) a morning routine
2) a production routine
3) a bedtime routine
I've had each of the above three somewhat in place on my own in the past but I've never been consistent. I work from home and get very frustrated with interruptions and low production on my end. I realized that I need to put much more discipline into my life if I want to reach my goals.
S. J. Scott is a "down to earth" "in the trenches" kinda guy. He knows what it's like working from home and what it takes to be successful.
However the idea of stacking habits that one wants to acquire in a way that they flow one into another, and understanding triggers for good habits (as well as bad habits), are helpful, as are some other tips in this book. I'm sure anyone would benefit from learning these techniques. That said, the book could have been shorter and sold as an article rather than a book and have provided all the new insights that I got from this book.
I have not yet tested the habit forming suggestion but am in the process. As I do believe small changes can make large impact.
