Product Description

About the Author

"Build a Better Life - One Habit at a Time" Getting more from life doesn't mean following the latest diet craze or motivation program. True success happens when you take action on a daily basis. In other words, it's your habits that help you achieve goals and live the life you've always wanted. In his books, S.J. provides daily action plans for every area of your life: health, fitness, work and personal relationships. Unlike other personal development guides, his content focuses on taking action. So instead of reading over-hyped strategies that rarely work in the real-world, you'll get information that can be immediately implemented. When not writing, S.J. likes to read, exercise and explore the different parts of the world Learn more by scrolling down the page and check out his books on developing positive daily habits...

I loved the simplicity and thoroughness of this book. I admit I am biased as I am already a huge fan of Steve Scott, but he always has new ideas and a fresh twist and this book is no exception. Steve is like many good teachers - he makes you feel good about what you are doing already whilst at the same time managing to offer suggestions for improvements and changes that are 'do-able' and do not leave you feeling overwhelmed with the enormity of the task. This book is truly what it says on the cover - small life changes that can be picked one at a time and take less than 5 minutes to do but will make a real difference. The categorisation of the ideas into Productivity, Organisation, Personal Life etc is inspired and further helps you to choose what is most important at the current time to be applied to your own life and circumstances. Thanks again Steve for a great book!

I believe that most people who read a self help book are looking for quick results. This author is a recent discovery for me and although undoubtedly I have a strong routine built up from pre-reading of other works, I knew that I could do much more. For me the excuse was one of opportunity cost. Because I was being virtuous in doing X, therefore there was no time for Y. In particular computer time and writing, exercise and good health were being saved for one day when I have more time. The truth was my exercise routine had dwindled to using the stairs instead of the lift and that was it. Habit stacking is a wedge that first opens the door and then leaves it open. The habits require so little effort that it is difficult to resist on grounds of time or degree of difficulty.

I knew that I didn't drink enough water and found that a glass before bedtime and a glass upon waking gave me better sleep and quicker waking up and was simple to implement. I lulled myself into the belief that when I had more time I would exercise more and get fitter. The truth is that I didn't want to see how unfit I had become. The author asks you to start at such a low level that you cannot resist. One press-up, one sit up. Of course you don't stop at one because starting is the main thing. My resistance to writing was down to the slow start up time of the computer, making five minutes disproportionate. Also the lure of the computer has a habit of turning 5 minutes into many misspent hours. I resolved this by writing on paper for just five minutes a day. When I come to type it up later, 5 minutes outpouring on paper becomes a flood of words plus more ideas for later, all controlled with a kitchen timer.

The main idea behind this is that it is possible to make small changes (creating new daily habits or rituals) that will quickly change your whole life for the better.

The principle of, "Little hinges swing on big doors."

The author, S. J. Scott specialises in helping people break bad habits and cultivate good habits. Inside the book you will discover how to break tasks/routines down into "mini habits" which you can then link together (stack).

Lots of tips are provided for improving your productivity, improving relationships, finances, spiritual well-being and more using simple, less-than-5-minute-habits.

If you want to improve your life through simple 5 minute changes, this book can help you achieve that outcome. It's a well written and straight forward guide to, "Changing your life through better habits." It could, however, have been improved by including a few more original habits to cultivate, in my opinion.

I first discovered SJ Scott's book at Christmas - when I bought the "Resolutions that Stick" - and have been a fan ever since.

This habit stacking book as ever delivers what it promises in well designed, easy to action form. You may well find that some habit sections more relevant to your life, or areas of stress, than others - but in my view they are all worth a ponder.

As ever though the book is one thing - but gaining the desired effect requires implementation by the purchaser - which is the bit I always need to work on ;-) The book does give you the tools though - so the rest is up to you (or me)!

Enjoy!

Sometimes, when life just gets too busy it is useful to refine things a bit to reduce the stress and make sure everything gets done !!

This book certainly helps in that aim ... a tweak here and and a tweak there and things feel more streamlined and less higgledy piggledy.

I enjoyed reading this book and am working on habit stacking. I bought a couple of the author's other ebooks and also started reading his blog. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the role of habits in our lives and who wants to develop some useful habits that make life simpler. Its another one that is worth rereading.
