I recommend this book for anyone who has struggled with habits - whether they are trying to add habits to their life or get rid of bad habits. This looks at people's underlying tendencies and, keeping that in mind, how they should then proceed. There are four tendencies: Upholder, Questioner, Obliger, and Rebel. It sounds silly, but although I've noticed I am a Rebel tendency, I've never really understood what that's meant or how it effects so much of my life. After reading this book, I feel much more prepared to incorporate better habits and improve my daily routine. ( )
With a bad history to non-fiction books,surprisingly, I finished the book.. And actually enjoyed reading it. I guess because it's easy to read..
I can totally relate to her!
Don't let the fact that I took two months to read this book make you think it's slow or not worthwhile. It took me that long because, much like "Daring Greatly," some of the truth bombs took me time to process. But I had to finish it today because I was out of renewals from the library, so I dug in and read the last 75 pages. This book is life changing. I have pages of notes so I can still go back and reference the pieces that made me evaluate how I spend my time and live my life. Must read.
Lots of good tips and insights here, and with nearly as many pithy and inspiring quotes as are in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations. I mostly listened to this while cooking healthy food and walking for exercise, two of my recently adopted new habits! Based on her own description of herself, Gretchen Rubin and I could not be more different, but she knows that what's good for her may not be good for everyone, and her "four tendencies" model is a useful framework. This is one I think I'll flip through in paper or ebook again. It's definitely helpful for me to get some pointers on how to strengthen good habits and let go of bad ones, and Rubin presents hers well.

"Habits are the invisible architecture of our lives. Rubin provides an analytical and scientific framework from which to understand these habits--as well as change them for good. Infused with her compelling voice and funny stories, she illustrates the core principles of habit formation with dozens of strategies that she uses herself and tests out on others. Rubin provides tools to help readers better understand themselves, and presents a clear, practical menu of strategies so readers can take an individualized approach. She tackles each strategy herself and in doing so shows us the importance of knowing ourselves and our own habit tendencies. Armed with self-knowledge, we can pursue habits in ways that will truly work for us, not against us. Going to the gym can be as easy, effortless, and automatic as putting on a seatbelt. We can file expense reports, take time for fun, or pass up that piece of carrot cake without having to decide. With a foundation of good habits, we can build a life that reflects our values and goals"--
