New Year’s resolutions and bad habits, we all can relate to these. Wouldn’t it be helpful to explore an approach with which your desires, wishes, and improvements really stick with you? Enter Stick With It: A Scientifically Proven Process for Changing Your Life – for Good by Sean Young. The author heavily leans on scientific research you’re probably familiar with: Kahneman c.s. The self-help step-by-step approach has the acronym SCIENCE to make that stick as well.
Stepladders: to reach your destination you need to take small steps, beginning with the next move. A community can help you taking responsibility and keep you accountable for ingraining that new habit. Focus on important things only. Make small changes easy to pick up. Neurohacks, elsewhere called lifehacks, can reveal new insights, foster efficiency, or boost improvements. People keep doing things if they’re rewarded with things they need. Make it fun to participate and continue working on change. You’ll see the change that will last, engrained in your behavior.
The book’s packed with practical exercises and real-life case studies. Hopefully, Young’s audience not only read or listen but practice what’s preached.
