The Power of Habit: live talk tomorrow!

Amazon: The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and BusinessPost-chat followup: What an amazing chat. Charles Duhigg is (not surprisingly) extremely smart and his work on the science of habit change is compelling indeed. What I most appreciated: the firm science behind the importance and power of a pleasurable reward. Worth thinking about the next time you're feeling guilty about "bribing" yourself or your kids. Of course, it's a bit more sophisticated than that...read the book for details. (I'm going to see if I can get a few copies to give away.) -- Asha

Our habits -- the regularly recurring patters of behavior we engage in that we may not even notice -- are our most powerful tools for change. Between Leo Babauta's simple tips at Zen Habits, to Flylady's cheerleading about household routines, to my own trial-and-error on the path to getting organized, I've come to believe it.

Join me tomorrow for a live, all-text chat at The Motherhood, to talk about a new book from New York Times business reporter and author Charles Duhigg, The Power of Habit.

Charles will host and discuss how understanding habits is the key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, and more.

When: Tuesday, May 8, at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.  We'll chat for 30 minutes.

Where: On The Motherhood

Who: The all-text chat will be hosted by the book’s author, Charles Duhigg.  Co-hosting along with me are these lovely people:

We'll be giving away copies of the book during the chat! I hope you'll join us -- it promises to be a productive 30 minutes!
