The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg – Productivity Book Group

Productivity Book Group [ http://productivitybookgroup.org ] discussed The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business [ http://amzn.to/1rbOMCW ] by Charles Duhigg.

Amazon description:

In The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize–winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

Charles Duhigg is a Yale undergrad, Harvard MBA and award-winning staff reporter at The New York Times, where he writes for the business section. Prior to 2006, he was a staff writer of the Los Angeles Times. He lives currently in Brooklyn, NY. Duhigg published The Power of Habit in 2012, and it spent 60 weeks on the NYT bestseller list; that’s quite an achievement and more importantly, it hints at a shift in society’s perception and openness to personal productivity, especially habit formation. It’s this popularity that has brought many of you here onto the call today.

We discussed the Habit Loop, habit formation, keystone habits, and much more in this call. Enjoy the discussion!
