We all have those little habits we’d like to change. Maybe you hate the fact that you bite your nails, or you’d love to curtail your twice-daily Starbucks runs. But actually making that leap from thought to action? That’s a little trickier.
New York Times reporter Charles Duhigg had a habit he wanted to break, too, but he took a pretty drastic approach. He decided to write a book on what drives habits, and how we can effectively stop them: The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business.
What he found (and shares in this quick video) is that a little bit of self-insight can help you break even the most seemingly ingrained habits—more easily than you might think.
