Publisher's Summary

Stop not doing what you know you should do!
You might think laziness, lack of willpower, and/or low motivation are to blame for the fact that you aren't achieving your goals. But fascinating research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology has revealed another, far more likely possibility. One with the potential to transform your life in a dramatic way.
The typical excuses for not doing what you know you should - I'm too stressed out... I don't have the time... I don't have the energy, etc. - are, in fact, manifestations of a complex, interconnected web of psychological, chemical, and neurological factors.
When activated, these factors can effectively paralyze you - making it virtually impossible for you to take the actions needed to create change in your life.
In other words, even if you're highly motivated... if you've got these internal circumstances operating, you aren't going to be able to do it.
But while the biochemistry may be complex, the solutions are actually quite simple.
Dr. Nick Hall reveals these solutions - and the fascinating science behind them - in I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? You'll learn:

An extraordinarily powerful stress-fighting tool that very few people take advantage of.
An easy way to instantly regain control and stay focused in an emotional emergency.
Six things to do when you think you've taken on more than you can accomplish in the time you have.
The mistake almost everyone makes when they organize their to-do list.
A simple exercise that can instantly tell you which side of your brain is dominant at any given time.
The first-thing-in-the-morning action that will literally reset your internal clock and have a profoundly positive impact on your energy level for the rest of the day (and it is SO easy to do!).

Big Disappointment!

What disappointed you about I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It??

This is a 10-hour compilation of physiology/pathophysiology medical lectures. Seriously, 50 minutes of every hour is nothing but straight physiology and pathophysiology. And he doesn’t just graze the subject either he goes very deep into the subject passing multiple layers that will completely lose the average listener. The other 10 minutes actually has to do with what the title suggests.

Even being a medical professional myself I quickly became annoyed and wanted him to get to the point instead of describing every minute detail of the anabolic/catabolic response, neurological pathway, and the cellular chemical responses of the brain etc.

Honestly I felt a little conned when I found out this wasn’t an audio book but was just a bunch of lectures he compiled from speaking at various events. Sometimes he even asks questions to the audience and then you have to listen to some random person’s question/response. He even repeats himself too and uses the same examples from a previous lecture you listened too 2 hours prior.

Sure there are a few gems here and there but after the 1st hour I found myself wishing I purchased something else.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nick Hall again?

Probably not.

Good, but not what I expected

This book is fascinating, yet not what I was expecting. Most of it is on nutrition and his the brain / body works, which was interesting to me but only because I am in healthcare. There was good ideas on beliefs, visualization, etc. However, the interview at the end was horrible. The "interviewer", some big-wig at Nightingale, had the most insincere candor and was obviously not there for the interview, and was a huge insult to our intelligence. Otherwise, a good listen.
