"The Power of Habit"
"The Power of Habit" is a powerful tool in implementing good habits in one's life. In the long run the good habits will push out the bad ones. It's all about time management. You have to learn where you can adjust time spent in different areas of your day and night. As the author states, it takes 30 days to create or break a habit. Sleep, regular exercise, and eating habits are the building blocks to begin a healthier lifestyle.
Benjamin Chapin discusses our choices and decisions regarding family, spouse, work, and financial habits. Quality time spent with one's spouse is essential for a good relationship as well as family time with children. He gives great advice, examples, and suggestions in all these areas.
We are creatures of habit and throughout our lives our habits will fluctuate but having the skills to readjust one's habits is key. I really like the idea of batching. Overall, you can't go wrong with this audiobook. It's essential to life to keep up good habits and adjust when necessary for a healthy AND happy life.
Jay Prichard delivers this information in a clear and precise manner. He keeps the book fluid and where there are questions, he allows a moment to reflect. He speaks in an upbeat way that makes you not only want to make these changes but at least for me, I have already begun making them.
Audiobook received in exchange for an unbiased review.
"Clean, clear, helpful"
As the teaching maxim says, "Tell them what you're going to tell them, tell them, and then tell them what you told them. " Benjamin does this well. A good mix of specific steps and making the readers think for themselves. Also well narrated, easy to listen to and understand.
"Very insightful and well read."
I would definitely recommend this to a friend. The content is insightful and the performance was exactly what I had hoped for.
General self help books and books that inspire change within individuals.
His voice was excellent. Great pace and his inflection kept it interesting throughout the whole piece.
The whole book has a lot of compelling ways I can improve my personal, physical, relational, and professional habits. So in that sense, the whole experience was a moving audiobook and I'm excited to put the these new habits into practice.
"Great ideas in this book!"
I am unable to "rank" this book among all audiobooks I have listened to because this is the very first of its kind that I've listened to. A DIY book, full of very strong ideas on developing good habits and getting rid of those that are of no use.
I am unable to compare this with any other book, as this is the first of its kind I have listened to.
This is the first Jay Prichard performance I have listened to but I appreciated several aspects he presents, e.g., no heavy accent, very easily understood, he would display a reasonable level of excitement in certain areas without going over the top and sounding like an infomercial.
I am working on the presentation given on finding more time in my day by rising earlier each day, cutting out some of my Facebook time and email time.
"Not just WHY but HOW to create good habits."
Precise, specific, encouraging! Efficient in what is shared in the amount of time. Doesn't repeat himself, but doesn't quickly graze over any information. Shared personal examples, which I appreciated because I felt connected to author sharing a commonality therefore taking his counsel more seriously. However, personal experiences were kept to a minimum which allowed the information to focus on the reader's/listener's perspective. I prefer books read by author but this guy used voice inflection in the right places. I will be looking into Benjamin Chapin's other titles. Very grateful for this book!
"I enjoyed this audio book ."
I found this book to be an inspiration. I'm looking forward to hearing more from this author .
It is a little bit of help if you have a bad habit.
I receive a free review copy from the narrator
"Perhaps the Worst Audio Book I've Ever Purchased"
Apart from the rather superficial, "nothing-new" content, the author's writing is quite poor. I'm a teacher and editor and would never have let this manuscript see print without major revision. The narration is okay apart from the pronunciation of "important" as "impor-dant" which, unfortunately, occurred dozens of times.
Everything - the content, the writing itself and, to a lesser degree, the narration.
In a world where time is limited and we are facing information-overload, Mr Chapin presents us with a waffling discourse on the Power of Habits. His suggestions are trite and seem like a mash-up of better books.
This book would have been better if it had dealt with the core question of why it is so hard to change habits. Instead it gives examples of bad habits and good habits. The strategies for change are at the level of planning. Habits are deep within us and changing them requires insight and strategies which address psychological and emotional issues. This book doesn't even scratch the surface.
I was expecting something with more depth. I was disappointed to not really learn anything new.
