Publisher's Summary

Imagine how different your life would be if you knew a way to hack your daily habits to become a highly self-disciplined and productive person.
You will never quite know how many opportunities you have missed by lacking the self-discipline to truly follow through on your convictions. Whether it's attaining a new body, better job, or simply being more productive in life. All too often people fall short as they aren't equipped with the right mental make-up and mind tricks to actually achieve it.
Not anymore.
James Daugherty is an intelligence expert and former CIA spy who specializes in all forms of human behavior. But there's one trait which is critical to winning, self-discipline. A spy would be worthless without it.
However he never realized quite how much his ability to cultivate a self-disciplined mindset whilst working in the field as an American spy would help everyday people in civilian life.
Imagine if you could arrange your habits and behaviors in a way to achieve seamless success in whatever you are doing.
In this insightful and functional book, Daugherty gives listeners a firsthand look into the trials and tribulations he dealt with in the field as a CIA operative and no-nonsense guide revealing how to:


Understand the basic cognitive principles on how the brain actually works
The nature of a "habit loop"
Why it's critical to identify bad habits and replace them with better ones
Tactics to help you naturally cultivate a self-disciplined mindset
Strategies to help with delaying gratification and preventing procrastination
Day-to-Day habits of a spy to develop extreme productivity
Implementing "Habit Pyramiding" for exponential progress
CIA fitness training principles for fast results

And much more.

logically based material

Great audio book! It uses logic and science to support the message, and it doesn't rely on fluffy feel good rhetoric. This was clearly meant as a learning tool in conjunction with an inspirational tool.

Boring, not worthy buying

Would you try another book from James Daugherty and/or Tom Taverna?

Definitely no. Before I bought, I found it's all 5 star comments and I really regretted I bought this one.


What could James Daugherty have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It's nothing new to reader, it feels like it just put together something we already know and made into a book.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Don't like the narrator, the voice made me almost fall asleep


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. Want to return it.
