Descrizione

An award-winning psychologist and director of the UCLA Center for Digital Behavior shows everyone how to make real, lasting change in their lives in this exciting work of popular psychology that goes beyond The Power of Habit with science and practical strategies that can alter their problem behaviors—forever.

Whether it's absent-minded mistakes at work, a weakness for junk food, a smart phone addiction, or a lack of exercise, everyone has some bad habit or behavior that they'd like to change. But wanting to change and actually doing it—and sticking with it—are two very different things.

Dr. Sean Young, an authoritative new voice in the field of behavioral science, knows a great deal about our habits—how we make them and how we can break them. Stick with It is his fascinating look at the science of behavior, filled with crucial knowledge and practical advice to help everyone successfully alter their actions and improve their lives.

As Dr. Young explains, you don't change behavior by changing the person, you do it by changing the process. Drawing on his own scientific research and that of other leading experts in the field, he explains why change can be difficult and identifies the crucial forces that combine to make transformation permanent, from the right way to create new habits to how to harness emotional meaning to motivate change. He also helps us understand how the mind often interferes with creating lasting change and how we can outsmart it, including using "neurohacks" to shortcut the brain's counterproductive instincts. In addition he provides a powerful corrective to the decades old science of habits, offering a next generation discussion of how habits can change behavior with the right approach.

Packed with pragmatic exercises and stories of real people who have used them successfully, Stick with It shows that it is possible to control spending, stick to a diet, become more social, exercise regularly, stop compulsively checking e-mail, and overcome problem behaviors—forever.

    The best behaviors understanding / changing book I came across by far.
  • (5/5)
    A life changing book. If you ever felt helpless in overcoming your bad behaviours, this book is for you.
  • (1/5)
    Anecdote after anecdote, this isn’t scientific at all. Just another self help book.
  • (5/5)
    Definitely one of the best habit changing books out there!
  • (4/5)
    This was a very good book. It took me a few weeks to complete and had some very actionable steps you can apply to your life immediately. I would suggest this book to anyone that needs tips on how to not only change certain behaviors in your life, but also in business with retaining clients. He really digs into the science of why people behave the way they do and simple techniques you can use once you understand why.

    The fact that i stuck with listening to it explains it all!
    I had the audio version which is much harder for me to focus on usually as I’d be doing other stuff. But it captivated me. Really interesting and it covers a wide range of topics. Recommended
    NB: the reader has a really nice voice and accent which makes it much easier and pleasant

    This is an excellent book on how to change your habits, or even better, to start new, healthy ones. The author, Dr. Sean Young, has been researching how to change and/or start new habits and behaviors for around fifteen years, and he's come up with a list of methods on how to do this, which he calls S.C.I.E.N.C.E. (geeky, right?). Stepladders - making very small but continuous changes over timeCommunity - social connections offers supportImportant - making the change a serious priority in your lifeEasy - changing is easier when you make it easier to doNeurohacks - changing your behavior changes your mindCaptivating - if it's fun and rewarding, you will use it moreEngrained - repetition and routine makes it stick The more of these methods you use to change or start a new habit/behavior, the better the change will stick.Highly recommend this book if you are even slightly interested in changing habits.
