A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on.

For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?

Based upon the latest research in a number of psychological and medical fields, the authors of CHANGE ANYTHING will show that traditional will-power is not necessarily the answer to these strivings, that people are affected in their behaviors by far more subtle influences. CHANGE ANYTHING shows how individuals can come to understand these powerful and influential forces, and how to put these forces to work in a positive manner that brings real and meaningful results.

The authors present an array of everyday examples that will change and truly empower you to reexamine the way you go about your business and life.

For most people, change is about as easy as selling a ketchup popsicle to a lady with white gloves on a hot day.
I haven´t even finished the book. But I´ve been using the website: ChangeAnything
.com to make a change plan using the book´s tactics.
Here´s the lowdown:
Change is already hard enough as it is. But I´m on my smartphone or laptop EVERY DAY. In fact, my laptop is the primary culprit in my change plan. I want to stop wasting time on the internet and workout everyday.
So having my homepage set to the website means...
A) Everyday I can see a chart tracking my progress, telling me how many consecutive days I´ve succeeded.
B) I can set up automatic consequences to discourage me from ´relapsing´. Like giving $5 to a friend.
C) I can finally share my goals with others easily. I can start competing with friend and strangers to reach my goals.
I´d be curious to see how others have used the site. I got this code that gives you a premium subscription: workit06. Tell me what you guys think.
