Have you ever wondered why some people can adopt a healthier lifestyle or realize professional achievement, while others flail and fail? Journalist Charles Duhigg attributes this to habit and explains that successful people learn to control and change their habits. First, they understand that the three steps of the “habit loop” – “cue, routine and reward” – determine what individuals do without thinking. By analyzing how undesirable habits such as overeating, excess drinking or smoking operate in that loop by satiating cravings, people who want to change can control habits that may seem to control them. Duhigg‘s fun, educational book will help anyone who wants to embark on self-improvement. May the force of habit be with you.
