BOOK EXCERPT:

Improving your life is much easier than you think. Whether it’s losing weight, sleeping more, or restoring your work/life balance – the secret is to start small. For years, we’ve been told that being more healthy and productive is a matter of willpower: that we should follow the latest fad and make constant changes to our lifestyles. But whether in our diets, fitness plans or jobs, radical overhauls never work. Instead we should start with quick wins — and embed new, tiny habits into our everyday routines. The world expert on this is Silicon Valley legend BJ Fogg, pioneering research psychologist and founder of the iconic Behaviour Design Lab at Stanford. Now anyone can use his science-based approach to make changes that are simple to achieve and sticky enough to last. In the hugely anticipated Tiny Habits, BJ Fogg shows us how to change our lives for the better, one tiny habit at a time. Based on twenty years research and his experience coaching over 40,000 people, it cracks the code of habit formation. Focus on what is easy to change, not what is hard; focus on what you want to do, not what you should do. At the heart of this is a startling truth — that creating happier, healthier lives can be easy, and surprisingly fun.

Mini Habits

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

Discover the Life-Changing Strategy of This Worldwide Bestseller in 17 Languages! Lasting Change For Early Quitters, Burnouts, The Unmotivated, And Everyone Else Too When I decided to start exercising consistently 10 years ago, this is what actually happened: I tried "getting motivated." It worked sometimes.I tried setting audacious big goals. I almost always failed them.I tried to make changes last. They didn't. Like most people who try to change and fail, I assumed that I was the problem. Then one afternoon--after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise--I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This "stupid idea" wasn't supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day). I had to consider that maybe I wasn't the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as "the way to change" in countless books and blogs. My suspicions were correct. Is There A Scientific Explanation For This? As I sought understanding, I found a plethora of scientific studies that had answers, with nobody to interpret them correctly. Based on the science--which you'll find peppered throughout Mini Habits--we've been doing it all wrong. You can succeed without the guilt, intimidation, and repeated failure associated with such strategies as "getting motivated," New Year's Resolutions, or even "just doing it." In fact, you need to stop using those strategies if they aren't giving you great results. Most popular strategies don't work well because they require you to fight against your subconscious brain (a fight not easily won). It's only when you start playing by your brain's rules and taking your human limitations seriously--as mini habits show you how to do--that you can achieve lasting change. What's A Mini Habit? A mini habit is a very small positive behavior that you force yourself to do every day; its "too small to fail" nature makes it weightless, deceptively powerful, and a superior habit-building strategy. You will have no choice but to believe in yourself when you're always moving forward. The barrier to the first step is so low that even depressed or "stuck" people can find early success and begin to reverse their lives right away. And if you think one push-up a day is too small to matter, I've got one heck of a story for you! Aim For The First Step They say when you aim for the moon, you'll land among the stars. Well, that doesn't make sense, as the moon is closer than the stars. I digress. The message is that you should aim very high and even if you fall short, you'll still get somewhere. I've found the opposite to be true in regards to productivity and healthy behaviors. When you aim for the moon, you won't do anything because it's too far away. But when you aim for the step in front of you, you might keep going and reach the moon. I've used the Mini Habits strategy to get into the best shape of my life, read 10x more books, and write 4x as many words. It started from requiring one push-up from myself every day. How ridiculous is that? Not so ridiculous when you consider the science of the brain, habits, and willpower. The Mini Habits system works because it's how our brains are designed to change. Note: This book isn't for eliminating bad habits (some principles could be useful for breaking habits). Mini Habits is a strategy to create permanent healthy habits in: exercise, writing, reading, thinking positively, meditating, drinking water, eating healthy foods, etc. Lasting change won't happen until you take that first step into a strategy that works. Give Mini Habits a try. You won't look back.

The Power Of Experiments

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

How tech companies like Google, Airbnb, StubHub, and Facebook learn from experiments in our data-driven world—an excellent primer on experimental and behavioral economics Have you logged into Facebook recently? Searched for something on Google? Chosen a movie on Netflix? If so, you've probably been an unwitting participant in a variety of experiments—also known as randomized controlled trials—designed to test the impact of different online experiences. Once an esoteric tool for academic research, the randomized controlled trial has gone mainstream. No tech company worth its salt (or its share price) would dare make major changes to its platform without first running experiments to understand how they would influence user behavior. In this book, Michael Luca and Max Bazerman explain the importance of experiments for decision making in a data-driven world. Luca and Bazerman describe the central role experiments play in the tech sector, drawing lessons and best practices from the experiences of such companies as StubHub, Alibaba, and Uber. Successful experiments can save companies money—eBay, for example, discovered how to cut $50 million from its yearly advertising budget—or bring to light something previously ignored, as when Airbnb was forced to confront rampant discrimination by its hosts. Moving beyond tech, Luca and Bazerman consider experimenting for the social good—different ways that governments are using experiments to influence or “nudge” behavior ranging from voter apathy to school absenteeism. Experiments, they argue, are part of any leader's toolkit. With this book, readers can become part of “the experimental revolution.”

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

★ Based on Nicolas Cole's viral article with more than 1,000,000 views! ★ Big changes don't happen overnight. They happen day by day, little by little-until all of a sudden, you've arrived. Nicolas Cole, one of the most-read personal development writers on the internet with more than 100 million views on his work, reveals to readers why the secret to success isn't about finding a shortcut-but building tiny habits that compound along the way. Part actionable advice, part vivid storytelling, 19 Tiny Habits is a quick read. Reflecting on the 19 tiny habits that have led to huge results in his own life, Cole credits these small daily actions as being the foundational elements of his successes in his late teens and 20s: "When I was 17 years old, I was one of the highest-ranked World of Warcraft players in North America, as well as one of the first bloggers in the emerging eSports industry with a viral blog." "At 22 years old, I discovered I'd been undiagnosed with Celiac Disease for the first 18 years of my life. I turned to bodybuilding to start over, find a sense of confidence, and turn my newfound boring diet of rice, chicken, and vegetables into an unfair advantage-putting on 70 pounds of muscle and transforming from a skinny, socially awkward teenager into a shredded fitness model." "By 24, I had graduated college with a degree in fiction writing and decided I wanted to start taking my writing more seriously. In less than 2 years, I became one of the most-read writers on the internet, the #1 writer on Quora (a platform with more than 200 million users), and one of Inc Magazine's Top 10 contributing writers." "And by 28 years old, I had quit my 9-5 job as a copywriter and turned my love for writing into a ghostwriting business called Digital Press. In less than 18 months, Digital Press became a multi-million-dollar agency with 20+ full-time employees working with more than 300 different Silicon Valley investors, executives, NYT best-selling authors, Grammy-winning musicians, Olympic athletes, and more." In this book, readers will not only hear Cole's story first hand, but also learn for themselves: Habits for happiness Habits for success Habits to improve focus, discipline, persistence, and drive Habits to change yourself (for the better) Habits to redefine the way you see your life 19 Tiny Habits That Lead To Huge Results will change the way you think about your life journey. Process over destination, mastery over achievement, Cole has found a way to turn relentless goal-setting into a way to know yourself better as a human being-achieving your goals, while being deeply fulfilled in the process.
