It all sounded good to me. So a dived in - ready to implement the 'no fluff' strategies.
Thanks to the Hack Your Habits strategy, I have began to develop a truly set-it-and-forget-it system that helped me achieve my goals faster, with less effort, and with the goal of achieving immediate results. I've begun to build a powerful, automated system to avoid the trap of modern day temptations, but also gives me strategies to deal with willpower battles and avoid motivational ups and downs.
A major goal I have already achieved is becoming more organised - no more wasting time trying to find things!
The accompanying FREE workbook, is a super helpful will guide through the steps outlined in Hack Your Habits and help me create my own, personalised Habit System - including setting up a dedicated "productivity' space with helpful prompts to help me stay focused.
As a trained psychiatrist and psychotherapist with nearly 20 years’ experience of helping people change their behaviour and their lives, the author (Joanne Jast) has a good understanding of human nature and the knowledge of what really works and what doesn't when it comes to behaviour change.
An excellent read. Highly recommended.
To start with, Joanna dives into the material with why motivation is not the way to build habit change. She gives solid advice on how to use willpower to form lasting changes with habits, and how to set your habits on autopilot for better execution. The course has great colour diagrams to illustrate the "Hack Your Habits" Framework. The book also features an accompanying workbook to use as you are going through the book. Chapter 7 is one of my favourite chapters because it dives into the habit problem and then, chapter 8, setting goals for building the habit.
In PART 4, Joanna gets into designing a habit system through:
• Breaking old habits
• Finding effective cues
• Using habit goals to map out routines
• Connecting your cue with your routine for high-end execution
PART 5 is about creating your "Fail & Future Proof" system for success. You will discover:
• How to implement 5 strategies to stop you from failing.
• How to kill resistance
• How to test, track and Tweet your system.
PART 6 is chock-full of stellar material on how to tackle common barriers for better habit formation. In this section you'll discover what motivates you, how you're motivated, and how to make motivation work for you. You can also learn how to deal with willpower shortages and outages.
“A Scientific Approach to Building Habits”
Joanna has given us a different angle on dealing with habits. The book really gets into the science of how and more specifically, WHY habits fail us. Once we understand the HOW habits work, we can focus on the solutions to making them work for us through better positive habits. Also, the more we know about ourselves, the better our results will be. By defining our core character and the habits we stick with, we can develop and customize our course for better success.
In addition, Joanna has done interviews with some TOP performers in the HABIT industry such as Stephen Guise [Mini Habits] and Martin Meadows [Self-Discipline], Hal Elrod [Miracle Morning, and Steve Scott [Habit Stacking]. These interviews add great weight to the book and serve to measure it's authority for building the best habits possible.
The Bottom line on Hack Your Habits…
This book is going to become a game changer in building and maintaining solid habits for many people. It doesn’t just rehash all the stuff that is already out there but has been well-structured, well-written, and superbly crafted so that you can pick it up and execute the action plans immediately. I love books that get right into the meat of the material immediately and don’t waste time with long, drawn out explanations. It is written with authority and is definitely a book I’ll be recommending to my friends, family and clients.
