This is a book that made me think twice about how I react to everything in my life; is it a habit or do I genuinely feel a certain way? The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg, explains that we act based on simple habits, and that we can change whatever we want if we can figure out the trigger, routine, and reward we get from that habit. All we need to do is identify the cue or trigger, and then we can change that habit by changing the routine part.
Why was that very interesting? Because if you can identify that, you can change anything you dislike about yourself; emotional eating, smoking, cursing, etc., and for someone like me who is an impulsive shopper, this was heaven. The book also explains how corporations depend on your habits to sell more (shame on them!), and how habits can sometimes be fatal, in this case addictions.
I recommend this book to everyone, a mother who wants to save, a manager who wants his staff to perform better, a coach who wants to win tournaments.
