TEDx Talks
In this ingenious talk, Pulitzer Prize winning writer Charles Duhigg seamlessly combines informational facts from research, anecdotes from real events, and personal experience with insightful observations to explain why human behaviors are compelled by habit. Citing research evidence supporting the positive effects of willpower on long-term decision-making, Duhigg encourages listeners to teach willpower by supporting the mindful contemplation of consequences and resisting impulses that otherwise result in persistent habits.

Charles Duhigg is a renowned author and business reporter for The New York Times, where he has made numerous contributions. Mr. Duhigg is the author of "The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do In Life", recognized as one of the best books of 2012 by The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times.

Some habits have the power to start a chain reaction and change other habits. In other words, some matter more than others in remaking businesses and lives. These are keystone habits, and they can influence how people work, eat, play, live, spend, and communicate. Keystone habits start a process that transforms EVERYTHING.


For example, my keystone habit was waking up early every morning. This caused me to be more productive, allowing me to create a morning routine full of other good habits.


For more on this, I summarized the book into 7 key lessons.

He substituted a cookie craving with gossiping? That doesn’t count as a win but nevertheless proves the point of changing habits

THE HABIT LOOP:  CUE ->ROUTINE ->REWARD

Changing Habits starts with improving Will Power.
*Pre-empt the temptation by deciding what you will do*

HABIT TO DISCOURAGE BEHAVIOUR: Decide on the cue and the reward to help you avoid a temptation X.
HABIT TO ENCOURAGE BEHAVIOUR:  Decide on the cue and the reward to help you complete a new task Y.

I've also read EIGHT HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE by Stephen Covey.

He asserts

PRINCIPLES & VALUES  ->Create CHARACTER ->character builds HABITS ->highly effective habits build SUCCESS (GREATNESS)

I'm thinking the cross over is substitute WILLPOWER with CHARACTER or keep BOTH

PRINCIPLES & VALUES  ->CHARACTER ->HABITS ->SUCCESS (GREATNESS)
PRINCIPLES & VALUES  ->WILLPOWER ->HABITS ->SUCCESS (GREATNESS)
PRINCIPLES & VALUES  ->CHARACTER|WILLPOWER ->HABITS ->SUCCESS (GREATNESS)

As the Athletic Director and head coach of the Varsity Soccer team at Ryerson University, Dr. Joseph is often asked what skills he is searching for as a recruiter: is it speed? Strength? Agility? In Dr. Joseph's TEDx Talk, he explores self confidence and how it is not just the most important skill in athletics, but in our lives.
