The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business By Charles Duhigg (2012)
Please sign up by March 16 at www.astdmemphis.org, so that we can turn in a count to the restaurant. Food and beverage costs are on your own. Feel free to have dinner or a light snack.
Did you make New Year’s Resolutions that you’ve already failed to keep? Are you falling back into old, comfortable habits—even if you don’t like the outcomes you are getting?
Join fellow ATD-Memphis members for dining and discussion of Charles Duhigg’s book The Power of Habit. While habits often determine our own personal success, habits are also what comprise corporate culture, national culture, community culture, and family culture. Consequently, if we want to make changes either individually or as part of a culture, habits might be the best place to start.

“In The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize–winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.” (Amazon.com)
