Enhance your purchase
Control your brain so it doesn't control you. A science-based approach to getting things done and avoiding laziness and procrastination.
Our brains are not wired for goal achievement. They are wired only for speed, survival, and the present moment. It's time to defeat this primal tendency and make self-discipline your new normal.
Stop leaving tasks unstarted and/or unfinished. You're better than that.
Neuro-Discipline tells the tale of two battling brains, and why we are predisposed to laziness and energy conservation. Time after time, we take the path of least resistance to our detriment. The key to beating this is understanding the brain's imperatives and working with them. Neuro-Discipline is your layperson's guide to self-discipline success - just enough biology and psychology to give important context, while ensuring that you don't get stuck in the minutiae.
This isn't a textbook; it has over 20 actionable tips you can use TODAY.

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I dislike and do not condone his overuse of lame, common, slang phrases, momentarily popular exclamations/metaphors etc, and dumbed-down, lazy language instead of more lasting, intelligent expressions. This will sadly make this great and helpful book into an annoying, stale, difficult to read, outdated trendy work to be ignored not too many years from now - like many whose authors gave in to the temptation to talk that convenient, foolish-sounding way instead of sticking with more intelligible, permanently acceptable phrases which would stand the test of time and be accessible to any culture. A great number of similar books have become severy inaccessible and outdated because of this mistake. But it's definitely worth buying and reading.
Now the book reviews on the back cover beg the question...who wrote those reviews? No names associated with the great quotes. Loses one more star for this alone.
The last chapter was the most informative, no nonsense, telling it like it is. Self discipline is not easy. This last chapter gives you the methods to make it work.
All you have to add is a little willpower, and you are on the right track to success in life.

It gives some strategies to be able to achieve more and compromise less while keeping the low effort, expedient brain on side, with enough variety that most people will find some useful tools within, (presuming they muster up the will to engage them!).
It’s more entry level than expert, so if you’re well versed it’s probably not be the book for you, but it’s a good intro for someone looking for a bit of insight and practical tips on how to redirect your energy from avoidance to achievement.
It’s written in an engaging way, too... ...an enjoyable read.
