Editorial Reviews

Review

I don't leave many reviews but I had to for this book since I felt that I got so much out of it, I might as well tell other people about it. In short, it's a stellar and dense read about what motivates people and our brains, and how we can short circuit that and take advantage of it to our self-discipline. It's important to understand what you are battling in procrastination, perfectionism, distractions, and lack of motivation, and that's all addressed here. Honorable mention on the characterization of motivation as a temporary state of mind, where discipline is more automatic. Then more about habit formation and longer lasting behavior modification. Fascinating section on dopamine control, as well as application of the 40% rule that the military has become famous for.

Far more than you'd expect but still very accessible and applicable. Overall, just fantastic.

I find that many of the books on so-called self discipline are purely motivational. "self discipline you just get by sitting in a room anddoing." Yes, maybe on some level, but that's not helpful. Like, how do you get to that point?

This author gives real tips and tactics to get to that point where you can sit, as he says, with wet socks and never have a problem with it. It is also about building the tolerance for discomfort and understanding how your environment and relationships have a huge impact somewhere on your mindset. I particularly liked the four questions posed in one of the later chapters to ask yourself: one of them was "So am I a disciplined person or not" when you are lookingat a temptation right in the face. If you leave yourself with no wiggle room and only room for a yes or no answer, then it can be a powerful reminder and helpful for self-awareness.

I read a LOT of books and this is one of the best of the year for me. Easy to read and apply. Thanks
