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.

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)

my reply to the starbucks part of this video:
Sometimes you get bad customer service, because you are a bad customer.
we teach our children to not bully others, yet we bully others in customer service positions when we dont get our way from the "false sense of entitlement" best summed up as The Customer is Always Right.

If you had €1000 and you could invest that money in someone's future, who would you bet on? Is it yourself? Outstanding speaker Conor Neill from IESE Business School illustrates how to self apply the three criteria Warren Buffett uses to choose the people in which he trusts with his investments.
