When the major met with Kufas mayor, he made an odd request Could they keep food vendors out of the plazas Sure, the mayor said A few weeks later, a small crowd gathered near the Great Mosque of Kufa It grew in size Some people started chanting angry slogans At dusk, the crowd started getting restless and hungry People looked for the kebab sellers normally filling the plaza, but there were none to be found The spectators left The chanters became dispirited By 8 p.m., everyone was gone. I asked the major how he had figured out that removing food vendors would change peoples behavior. The U.S military, he told me, is one of the biggest habit formation experiments in history Understanding habits is the most important thing Ive learned in the army, he said By the time I got back to the U.S., I was hooked on the topic. Q How have your own habits changed as a result of writing this book A Since starting work on this book, I ve lost about 30 pounds, I run every other morning I m training for the NY Marathon later this year , and I m much productive And the reason why is because I ve learned to diagnose my habits, and how to change them. Take, for instance, a bad habit I had of eating a cookie every afternoon By learning how to analyze my habit, I figured out that the reason I walked to the cafeteria each day wasn t because I was craving a chocolate chip cookie It was because I was craving socialization, the company of talking to my colleagues while munching That was the habit s real reward And the cue for my behavior the trigger that caused me to automatically stand up and wander to the cafeteria, was a certain time of day. So, I reconstructed the habit now, at about 3 30 each day, I absentmindedly stand up from my desk, look around for someone to talk with, and then gossip for about 10 minutes I don t even think about it at this point It s automatic It s a habit I haven t had a cookie in six months. Q What was the most surprising use of habits that you uncovered A The most surprising thing I ve learned is how companies use the science of habit formation to study and influence what we buy. Take, for example, Target, the giant retailer Target collects all kinds of data on every shopper it can, including whether youre married and have kids, which part of town you live in, how much money you earn, if you ve moved recently, the websites you visit And with that information, it tries to diagnose each consumers unique, individual habits. Why Because Target knows that there are these certain moments when our habits become flexible When we buy a new house, for instance, or get married or have a baby, our shopping habits are in flux A well timed coupon or advertisement can convince us to buy in a whole new way But figuring out when someone is buying a house or getting married or having a baby is tough And if you send the advertisement after the wedding or the baby arrives, its usually too late. So Target studies our habits to see if they can predict major life events And the company is very, very successful Oftentimes, they know what is going on in someone s life better than that person s parents.Sharp, provocative, and useful.Jim CollinsFew books become essential manuals for business and living The Power of Habit is an exception Charles Duhigg not only explains how habits are formed

stories that Duhigg has knitted together are all fascinating in their own right, but take on an added dimension when wedded to his examination of habits Associated Press Theres been a lot of research over the past several years about how our habits shape us, and this work is beautifully described in the new book The Power of Habit.David Brooks, The New York Times A first rate bookbased on an impressive mass of research, written in a lively style and providing just the right balance of intellectual seriousness with practical advice on how to break our bad habits The Economist I have been spinning like a top since reading The Power of Habit, New York Times journalist Charles Duhiggs fascinating best seller about how people, businesses and organizations develop the positive routines that make them productiveand happy The Washington Post An absolutely fascinating book that explores a startling and sometimes dismaying collision between the increasingly sophisticated scientific understanding of habitshow theyre formed, how they can be disrupted and changedand, among other things, companies efforts to use that knowledge to steer your habits and money their way Wired If Duhigg is right about the nature of habits, which I think he is, then trying to get rid of these bad habits wont work Instead, what is needed is to teach the managers to identify the cues that lead to these bad habits and rewards, and then learn alternative routines that lead to similar rewards, i.e business and personal success Forbes The Power of Habit is chock full of fascinating anecdotes how an early twentieth century adman turned Pepsodent into the first bestselling toothpaste by creating the habit of brushing daily, how a team of marketing mavens at Procter Gamble rescued Febreze from the scrapheap of failed products by recognizing that a fresh smell was a fine reward for a cleaning task, how Michael Phelps coach instilled habits that made him an Olympic champion many times over, and
