The Science Behind Habits

Renowned psychologist Wendy Wood explains how habits – good and bad – form and how you can jettison bad habits and develop good ones.

Wendy Wood, PhD, is the Provost Professor of Psychology and Business at the University of Southern California. She lectures widely and has written for The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.

Super achievers might have extra willpower, but, says Wood, they arrange their lives to support habits that help them succeed. Habits work on autopilot in the background to promote incremental change. Wood defines habits that stick and teaches you how to build them. Her observations are sharp, and if you want to adopt helpful habits, Wood’s advice provides an effective starting point.
