The Power of Habit: why we do what we do in life and business

power_of_habit_imageA very enjoyable book by Charles Duhigg. Here’s what I want to remember from it: habits/routines are powerful and fragile, they can be overwritten but they never disappear. Change keystone habits for greatest impact in other (seemingly unrelated) areas. Write down plans (which I’ve always done), deliberately design willpower habits and build self-regulatory strength, and remember that willpower is a muscle.  There is a lot of power in a crisis to change habits/routines, habits are truces in the workplace, major life changes make people the most vulnerable to marketing interventions, our brains seek familiarity, the power of weak ties.  (submitted by JF)
