Måske har du svært ved at komme i gang med det, du har sat dig for - om det så er at leve sundere, tænke innovativt på jobbet, få et mere velfungerende familieliv, starte ny virksomhed eller ligefrem forandre verden. Du kan sandsynligvis komme ganske langt, hvis du begynder at se på dine vaner og den magt, de har over dit liv og dine handlinger. Journalist og Pulitzer-prisvinder Charles Duhigg dykker i denne bog ned i den seneste forskning om vaner og ser blandt andet på, hvordan vaner skabes og lagres i vores hjerner. Med en lang række fascinerende eksempler forklarer han, hvorfor det er så afgørende, at vi forstår vanernes opståen, funktion og store betydning - hvis vi ønsker at forandre vores egen eller andres adfærd.

Anleitung zum Umdenken Gewohnheiten besitzen eine ungeheure Macht. Doch wie kommen sie zustande? Und: Haben wir unsere Gewohnheiten noch im Griff? Charles Duhigg beschreibt, warum einige Menschen es schaffen, über Nacht mit dem Rauchen aufzuhören (und andere nicht), weshalb das Geheimnis sportlicher Höchstleistung in antrainierten Automatismen liegt oder wie sich die Anonymen Alkoholiker die Macht der Gewohnheit zunutze machen. Charles Duhigg erklärt, wie gute Gewohnheiten eine Gesellschaft zusammenhalten - und wie man mit schlechten bricht. »Dieses kleine Meisterwerk ist zugleich eine Einführung in die neue Wissenschaft der Gewohnheit sowie eine überaus praktische Übungsanleitung zur bewussten Gestaltung von Gewohnheiten.« NZZ am Sonntag
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER *;From the author of The Power of Habit comes a fascinating book that explores the science of productivity, and why managing how you think is more important than what you thinkwith an appendix of real-world lessons to apply to your life. At the core of Smarter Faster Better are eight key productivity conceptsfrom motivation and goal setting to focus and decision makingthat explain why some people and companies get so much done. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economicsas well as the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents, airplane pilots, and Broadway songwritersthis painstakingly researched book explains that the most productive people, companies, and organizations don't merely act differently. They view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different ways.A young woman drops out of a PhD program and starts playing poker. By training herself to envision contradictory futures, she learns to anticipate her opponents' misstepsand becomes one of the most successful players in the world. A group of data scientists at Google embark on a four-year study of how the best teams function, and find that how a group interacts is more important than who is in the groupa principle, it turns out, that also helps explain why Saturday Night Live became a hit. A Marine Corps general, faced with low morale among recruits, reimagines boot campand discovers that instilling a ';bias toward action' can turn even the most directionless teenagers into self-motivating achievers. The filmmakers behind Disney's Frozen are nearly out of time and on the brink of catastropheuntil they shake up their team in just the right way, spurring a creative breakthrough that leads to one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. What do these people have in common? They know that productivity relies on making certain choices. The way we frame our daily decisions; the big ambitions we embrace and the easy goals we ignore; the cultures we establish as leaders to drive innovation; the way we interact with data: These are the things that separate the merely busy from the genuinely productive.InThe Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prizewinning journalist Charles Duhigg explained why we do what we do. In Smarter Faster Better, he applies the same relentless curiosity, deep reporting, and rich storytelling to explain how we can improve at the things we do. It's a groundbreaking exploration of the science of productivity, one that can help anyone learn to succeed with less stress and struggle, and to get more done without sacrificing what we care about mostto become smarter, faster, and better at everything we do.
