We all have habits. Some of them we've carefully established; others we may have simply fallen into. Some help us get our work done; others hold us back.

This book explores how to change your behavior to break counterproductive tendencies, combat everyday stressors, and ultimately reach your goals at work and in life.

This volume includes the work of James Clear, Rasmus Hougaard, Jacqueline Carter, and Whitney Johnson.
