The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business
Open Discussion on the Book Written by Charles Duhigg
Tuesday evening 03.27.12 at 7
Are your habits a help or a hindrance? How does the word even make you feel? Hasn’t everything that could be said about habits already been said? Could your habits be refocused or altered for a dramatically different outcome? Where did your habits originate from? Were you born an early or late riser? What about smoking, liquor or even cussing? Do you shape and manipulate your habits or do they manipulate you? Do you have habits that you are barely aware of?
In “The Power of Habit” Charles Duhigg has penned a thoroughly entertaining read on the importance and pitfalls of habits. In a world that is demanding change and adaptation in so many areas this is a book that is hard to put down. And amusingly, the way that Duhigg explains them makes you wonder why you thought it was so hard or why you waited so long to tackle offing bad habits or fashioning new and productive ones. Properly read and implemented this could be a most worthwhile investment.
I’ll wrap up this review and invite as I think that it is cookie time for me. We hope that you join us. You don’t have to make it a habit.
For the “Habit” of Discussion:
- What do you really “crave?” Why are cravings important?
- “Transformation” must be driven by something! What drives you?
- What are some of your “cues, routines and rewards?”
- How have you tried to change habits in the past? Did it work?
- How might meaningful “habit design” be facilitated?
- What are “keystone habits” and why are they so important?
- What effect does “crises” have on your “habit patterns?”
- What do marketers know about you that you don’t?
- What habit(s) do you want to change?
“Charles Duhigg masterfully combines cutting-edge research and captivating stories to reveal how habits shape our lives and how we can shape our habits. Once you read this book, you’ll never look at yourself, your organization, or your world quite the same way.” —Daniel H. Pink
