Publisher's Summary

Want more time to work on important goals? Need to build a specific habit? Struggling to change your life?
Imagine what life would be like if you started every morning with small actions that created a chain reaction of positive benefits throughout your life.
You eat a healthy breakfast, have a great conversation with your loved ones, and then begin your workday focusing on the important tasks. Then, throughout the day, you complete other habits that positively impact your top goals. I guarantee you'd feel more fulfilled, get more accomplished, and have a better direction for your career.
All of this is possiple when you add dozens of small changes to your daily routine. These habits don't require much effort. In fact:


Most of these habits only take five minutes or less to complete
And all this can be done when you follow a strategy known as "Habit Stacking ™"
One Routine + Multiple Habits = Habit Stacking

We all know it's not easy to add multiple new habits to your day. But what you might not realize is it's fairly easy to build a single new routine. The essence of habit stacking is to take a series of small changes and create a ritual that you follow on a daily basis.
Habit stacking works because you eliminate the stress of trying to change too many things at once. Your goal is to simply focus on a single routine that only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Within this routine is a series of actions (or small changes). All you have to do is to create a checklist and follow it every single day.

Gets you rethinking ways to improve your habits

What made the experience of listening to Habit Stacking the most enjoyable?

The most enjoyable part of Habit Stacking which also helped better understand the content was S.J. Scott's personal experience in his own journey stacking the habits bit by bit resulting in a healthier and happier version of himself.


What other book might you compare Habit Stacking to and why?

Habit Stacking can be compared to 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life, though in this case, they are essentially gifts to yourself that also benefit others in the long term.


Which character – as performed by Greg Zarcone – was your favorite?

S.J. Scott, the author, I guess would be my favorite "character" as he described his personal experiences with habit stacking, which made it more personal and story like.


What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I need to start incorporating the habit of more directly telling my parents I love them on a more consistent basis. In fact, that was the first concept introduced in the book.


Any additional comments?

I definitely recommend listening to it, as Greg Zarcone speaks clearly and the ideas you get from Habit Stacking can start you on your own journey of a better self by merely changing one small habit at a time. On top of that, it comes with bonus material that frees you from having to take notes of links by going to the book notes S.J. Scott was nice enough to include with the book. My main suggestion would be to include a concise checklist of all the habits in pdf format to make it easier to remember and then chose which habits to follow. The book was just released last month, and he did say he will add more content so that may still happen later. Definitely, not a detractor from the book. Give it a listen! I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a review.
