THE POWER OF HABITS
by Charles Duhigg
I love this book.
Ok, maybe that’s a bit hyperbolic. But still – this book is absolutely amazing and I’d consider it essential reading for anyone who falls into the category of “human”.
As it turns out, habits shape much more of our behavior than we realize. The habits we do have largely determine the progress (either good or bad) we make in life. Bad habits are hard to break, and good ones are hard to form.
This book has literally changed my day-to-day life in profound ways. Now that I know how habits work, I’ve built over 20 new ones – waking up early, drinking more water, doing basic exercises daily, etc. I’ve also broken bad habits, which I’ve been doing since I was a kid.
