The fourth in a series of leadership book discussions planned for 2019 will be lead by David Burton, county engagement specialist with University of Missouri Extension, starting at noon on April 11 at the Springfield Botanical Center.

The discussion of “The Power of Habit” written by Charles Duhigg begins at noon and participants can bring their lunch. This book has also recently been part of the Mizzou Alumni Association book study.

According to this book, humans can operate on automatic pilot, performing complex behaviors without any conscious thought because of habit. Things like playing the guitar or even speaking a second language become a habit with practice. Unfortunately, we can also acquire bad habits, like smoking or overeating.

Duhigg, an investigative reporter for The New York Times, read hundreds of scientific papers and interviewed many of the scientists who wrote them, for this book. This is not a self-help book but a serious look at the science of habit formation and change.

Session topic:

A collection of questions will guide our discussion. Even if you have not read the book, you will learn about habits, the habit loop, changing your own habits, and using keystone habits to change your business.
