I don't know whether or not you are familiar with VitalSmarts, (the company I work for) but it was founded by several authors: Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler. Over the years they have become three-time New York Times bestselling authors for their books: Crucial Conversations, Crucial Confrontations, and Influencer. Pretty dang cool. They are now releasing a new book! It’s called
Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success
So why is this a big deal & what is it even about?
Well...here's a quick summary:
"Change Anything reveals a proven, scientific process to successfully take on any challenge in our lives-challenges like saving money, changing bad work habits, quitting smoking, increasing productivity, or losing weight. But here's the secret: willpower is not the answer. With a clearer understanding of the real forces that shape our actions, we can make better decisions, change our outlook, and replace bad habits with good."
"Individuals who have the power to change their behavior are individuals with power. Master the skills taught in this book and reach a new level of personal influence."
-Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Effective People & The Leader in Me
It releases tomorrow. You should totally buy it.
(Side note: I hate telling people what to buy, but if I make a blog post about it I get a free sweatshirt) :)
