Whether trying to lose weight, save money, get organised, or get a promotion at work, we're always setting goals and making resolutions, but rarely following through on them. According to Caroline Arnold, the 'big push' strategy of setting New Year's resolutions is ultimately designed to fail, because it relies on our limited willpower battling against our autopilot behaviours and attitudes, which are far more powerful. To permanently change ourselves, we need to focus our self-control on small and achievable steps, microresolutions, towards a big change in our life. Small Move, Big Change is Arnold's guide to turning broad personal goals into meaningful and discrete behavioural changes that lead to permanent improvement. Backed up by real-world examples and new scientific findings, she shows us that while the traditional resolution promises rewards on a distant 'someday', microresolutions work because they reward us today by instantly altering our routines and, ultimately, ourselves.

I had experimented with personal development strategies for a decade. When I accidentally started my first mini habit-and the changes I made were actually lasting-I realized the prior strategies I relied on were complete failures. When something works, that which doesn't work is exposed. The science in Mini Habits exposes the predictably inconsistent results of most popular personal growth strategies, and reveals why mini habits are consistent.A mini habit is a very small positive behavior that you force yourself to do every day; a mini habit's "too small to fail" nature makes it weightless, deceptively powerful, and a superior habit-building strategy.Mini Habits will better equip you to change your life than 99% of the people you see walking around on this globe. People so often think that they are the reason they can't achieve lasting change; but the problem isn't with them-it's with their strategy. You can achieve great things without the guilt, intimidation, and repeated failure associated with such strategies such as "getting motivated," resolutions, or even "just doing it." To make changes last, you need to stop fighting against your brain. When you start playing by your brain's rules-as mini habits show you how to do-lasting change isn't so hard.

Do you ever find even if you have temporary success making good choices, you fail to make lasting change and eventually go back to your old ways? The problem isn't that you're weak-willed. The real problem is you're taking the wrong approach.

Even if you only have five minutes a day, you can add these steps to your daily routine to almost effortlessly improve your habits. Discover Why You Can Upgrade Your Habits Even If You're Completely Unmotivated 11 years ago, I was eating fast food every single night and I never exercised. You couldn't have paid me to change my ways. Trying to force myself to change wouldn't work because I would have rebelled against giving up my comforts. Then there was a process I went through that shifted everything. I gave up the junk, started eating a healthy diet, and got in the best shape of my life. Most importantly, these habits have easily stuck for the past 11 years. What I learned was how to "flip a switch" in my brain so I could go from dreading to desiring healthier habits without a lot of willpower or self motivation. I've applied these tactics to develop a daily meditation habit, a morning routine, and skyrocket my productivity as a writer - things I used to constantly struggle with. I wrote this book because I want others to benefit from the methods that helped me so much.

Most of us wish we ate better. We wish we exercised more. We claim our health is important to us, yet, we don't do the things that we know we need to do. It's not that we have not tried living healthier - we have. Multiple times. It's just that sooner or later...we drop the new diet and quit the gym. Sticking to healthier routines seems like a never-ending battle. Some of us are wondering... ""Why the heck have I failed again and again at sticking to exercise and healthier eating?"" Some of us get baffled with our behavior. For example, even though we like exercise, we cannot make it a routine. We are wondering... " "Why don't I do what I want to do?" " Others feel they need to whip themselves into shape. Otherwise, "it would never work." They get started with healthier eating or exercise, and try and try and try, and push some more to make themselves stick to it... " "Does transitioning to living healthier have to be hard?"" In "Surprisingly...Unstuck" Brilaki combines research on how our brain codes habits with real case studies to explain why people fail again and again at making exercising more and eating right stick, and how to make lasting change actually happen. The good news? You don't need to whip yourself into shape and, yes, lasting change is actually possible and just a few steps away from you...

* One of Success magazine's Best Books of 2015 * It's difficult to ask anybody 'How are you?' without hearing the word 'busy' somewhere in their response. We feel overwhelmed by busyness because of the demands on our time: our inbox and our to-do list are bulging, a huge amount of people expect things from us and our organisations are trying to do more with fewer people. But it doesn't have to be that way. In reality, busyness isn't essential. Yes, there is a lot to do, but believing you're always busy because you have so much to do is both false and unhelpful. Busyness is a normal response to a world of too much, but it isn't the only response. In Busy Tony Crabbe draws on solid psychological research to address one of the great problems of modern life: we're too busy. But it isn't a time-management book. Rather than providing advice for increasing productivity and efficiency, it sets out four key strategies (corresponding to sections of the book) for thriving despite of the overload of too much: 1. Mastery - to move beyond busyness you need to regain a sense of mastery over your life. This section shows you how to build a sense of control back into your life, take responsibility for making choices and how to set boundaries to protect you from the flood of demands and information. 2. Focus - in a world of too much, success is not about doing more at work but about making an impact. This section outlines three ways to move to a career strategy that doesn't rely on productivity alone. 3. Engagement - busyness can cause you to disengage from the people, values and activities that are important to us. This section provides you with the three keys to re-engaging with your work and life. 4. Momentum - part of the challenge to moving beyond busyness is that even if you agree you should make the change, you're too busy to find the time and energy to do anything about it. This section is dedicated to helping you make the change, creating the impetus, energy and clarity to move to a life less busy.
