Busting habit myths
When it comes to chatter about behavior change, a lot of what you hear will mislead you. Motivation and willpower get a lot of airtime. The problem is that motivation and willpower are fickle – some days you have them and other days they desert you completely. When a behavior is tiny, it’s easy to do. Case in point: If I said “go to the gym” vs. “do one pushup,” which are you more likely to have the motivation and ability to do? Tiny allows you to start right now.
When it comes to change, Tiny is Mighty
Creating positive change isn’t as hard as you think
We all want to eat healthier, lose weight, exercise more, sleep better. But the alarming levels of obesity, sleeplessness, and stress in the headlines highlight the huge gap between what we want and what we actually do. I am here to say: it isn’t your fault. You are not the problem. Our approach to change is. Tiny Habits offers an entirely new framework for change. It’s a system based on years of research and one that I’ve road-tested with more than 40,000 people. With Tiny Habits, you'll learn:
- A simple method to make your goals tiny and achievable
- Why emotions – not repetition – wire in habits
- How to untangle yourself from bad habits
- And much more!

Since purchasing this book I have read it through twice and have created my own tiny habits which are now ingrained into my daily routine. I have also benefitted from the free 5-day email training programme, which reinforced my understanding of the Tiny Habits methodology/process.
The book has been written in a very easy to follow manner and is not written in a typical academic format. In the 10 chapters + Appendixes there are pictures and flow charts to help you navigate through the Fogg Behaviour Model and the process of Behaviour Design. BJ Fogg has over 10 years of research to back up his model and has trained 1000's of people worldwide in the Tiny Habits method of behaviour design.
There are other books out there that talk about creating habits which have been published before this one and have gained a lot of interest in the press. Don't be fooled - this is not just another book on habits. This book has been written by the leading-light at the forefront of behaviour design research.
In sum, this is the best book that I've read and digested in a long time. Bravo BJ Fogg.
The book packs decades of research and tens of thousands of hours of reflection into one digestible volume. I use tiny habits in every aspect of my life, from getting more exercise outside of work to helping people with diabetes manage their illness.
Buy it, read it, digest it, apply it, and teach it to someone else. It'll make your life (and theirs) a whole lot simpler and more fulfilling.
One great thing about the book is the presentation - it is so well organized, well thought about sections, short tips, fonts & formatting. You rarely see such a lovely presentation. It keeps the excitement intact.
So, I've just been reading another review, 3 stars by someone who I think posted their review 1/3 way through the book. I had ummed and ahhed about getting this particular book rather than others on habits and eventually I think after reading that other person's middling review, kind of thought argh it's less than £10 for gooness sake let's just buy it and see.
I'm only about a tenth of the way through the book and I really like the simplicity, and the power of that simiplicity (there is victory in surrender, take easy but do it (phrases I've picked up elsewhere, not from the book)) that I've found so far. I have already established about 5 'tiny habits', positive ones obviously, and I have also, and the book hasn't even reached this point yet, started making inroads into one negative habit I want to get rid of.
So yes, very pleased so far and wanted to share the good news sooner rather than later.
