To encapsulate this, I often think of Henry Ford’s famous quote :)
'If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.'
Here's mine, anyway :)
Indeed, If you aren't being told 'no' enough times, you're not pushing yourself hard enough.
Charles Duhigg, an investigative reporter for The New York Times, accomplishes what few books are able to do with his "The Power of Habit". The book educates (it's a serious look at the science of habit formation and change) while also entertains (filled with incredible stories). It's thoroughly enjoyable and provides many 'ah ha' moments.
The book covers a wide spectrum from explaining how habits are formed and how the bad ones can be broken, to how information on habits can be used in marketing, management, and social movements.
Besides the compelling stories, Duhigg also provides the prescription to change a bad habit. He explains how habits are formed by a cycle of a cue that triggers some behavior (good or bad), then a reward, and then a craving develops to drive a loop of repetitive behavior.
You have a happy reading. As for myself, finished in two seatings :)
happy doing business :)
"David has nothing to lose, and because he has nothing to lose, he has the freedom to thumb his nose at the rules set by others. That's how people with brains a little bit different from the rest of ours get jobs done."
In David and Goliath, author Malcolm Gladwell looks at how the 'Davids' of the world may actually have an advantage over the Goliaths.
I always look forward to the next work by Gladwell and he has yet to disappoint. David and Goliath is just the next work to challenge convention, educate the mind, and entertain the soul.
