What do you need besides motivation and willpower?
In Commit to Win,
Heidi Reeder, PhD, unpacks over forty years of research by psychologists and
economists to show that the key to reaching any goal, whether it’s to hit the
gym more often or to finally quit that dead-end job, isn’t motivation,
willpower, or determination. It’s commitment.
Busting the myths most of us believe about commitment,
Reeder shows that it all comes down to four variables:
Treasures: the benefits we get from working
toward a goal
Troubles: the difficulties we have to deal with
Contributions: the time, money, and effort we
Choices: the number of good alternatives we have
Together, these variables make up a formula that not only
measures how committed we are, but also shows which factors we can change to
get our commitment level in sync with what we want to do.
Packed with practical examples and action plans for a
variety of situations, Commit to Win will
allow listeners to stop wishing for things to be different and instead make
practical changes that will naturally empower them to reach their goals. It
will appeal to readers of Succeed and
