The Power of Habit: Charles Duhigg at TEDxTeachersCollege

Оценок: 8733 | Просмотров: 619830
In this ingenious talk, Pulitzer Prize winning writer Charles Duhigg seamlessly combines informational facts from research, anecdotes from real events, and personal experience with insightful observations to explain why human behaviors are compelled by habit. Citing research evidence supporting the positive effects of willpower on long-term decision-making, Duhigg encourages listeners to teach willpower by supporting the mindful contemplation of consequences and resisting impulses that otherwise result in persistent habits. Charles Duhigg is a renowned author and business reporter for The New York Times, where he has made numerous contributions. Mr. Duhigg is the author of "The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do In Life", recognized as one of the best books of 2012 by The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

This man has literally changed my life with his research and Book.
florentinaosoeanu (13 дней назад)
I stumbled upon this book, as random as possible, and I must say - once I started reading the book I was so absorbed. I started reading summaries, I started looking for interpretations, recommend it to every person, talk about it - that's how much I love this book. There's an example with a girl biting her nails, and not only her nails, he explains in detail. THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I DID MY ENTIRE LIFE. And that's right - it's just physical sensation. And for the first time in my life I started believing that I can finally get rid of this annoying habit - and this is a HUUUUUGE accomplishment. I'm really happy that I finally made it to create a habit for me that doesn't imply biting the skin around my nails. Anyhoo, this just confirmed that if i did this (I fought with this habit via multiple ways), I can change the way I want - got me really motivated. I don't agree with all the example, but mostly yes. Great book, I love it!

Deciding ahead of a time what to do I think falls into that Mel’s 5-2-3-2-1, breaking the body autopilot mode. Or perhaps in this case, tweaking what you do on autopilot. You need Less willpower in deciding as you allready have decision. Instead of being hungry & forcing yourself then and there to choose a healthier option, especially more difficult if it takes longer time.

What I learn here is that you should have a cue and rewards to build your habit. And to resist the temptation, you should not focus on it, distract yourself from it. Also, try to plan ahead of time because soon you will fail your own challenge when you get hot-blood. Fail to plan is plan to fail.

His book, The Power of Habit, and of the psychologist he mentioned in the video, Angela Duckworth's Grit, are life-changing. If you are fed up with your life and you feel a lack of passion and perseverance is preventing you from reaching your fullest potential, I highly recommend that you read both of their books. Seriously. Go get yourself a copy of each. The science behind them will break it down for you, and will make you realize that real change is achievable.

Phuc Coi I was there, I instead put the audiobook in the background while I’m cleaning my room instead of any other white noise to invest in my time, totally worth it if incorporated with practical steps to introduce new habits/eliminate bad ones, Good luck ! I think I’ll forever embrace that habit listening to audiobooks while doing anything that don’t require mental attentiveness...

Overall, very engaging talk about habit with interesting clips from the classic marshmallow experiment. When the young boy who resisted eating the 1st marshmallow to get the 2nd actually got the 2nd one he binged on both - classic abstinence violation effect which is actually problematic! Also important to note: the brain does not "turn off" when we get to the point of automatically exhibiting new habits. Automatic behaviors just get encoded in different regions of the brain - lots of brain activity in many different regions is needed to both form and activate habits!
BOSS (7 месяцев назад)

Siding with the Starbucks worker says a lot about his perception regardless of Winning a prize.. and for that reason I'm out
brendalg4 (8 месяцев назад)
Maurice994 he didn't side with him. He said the Starbucks worker might have been right... but it doesn't matter. The reason it doesn't matter is because they can't have employees being bad to customers even if the customer is being bad to them

I usually listen to talks and speeches on 1.5 times the original speed. I think it's possible to get used to it and learn things faster. But another awesome point is that going back to the normal speed after listening to the faster speed seems to increase my comprehension of the normal speed. It's very useful for studying other languages.

Jessica Gillespie (2 года назад)
I think the professor from Stanford who discussed how to create habits was more evolved than this one. He also said that a cue or trigger and consequential reward is necessary to perform the action you want to make a habit. The difference with his model is that you don't have to create cues. That's really hard! All you have to do is put the action after something you already do (put on the dogs leash before a walk, brush your teeth, eat a meal, use the bathroom, etc). It seems much more effective because that way your brain doesn't have to do the extra work of remembering the cue. Also, it doesn't make since to equate willpower with a habit because that implies that the former can be automatic instead of something that has to be trained just like the kid had to adjust in order to avoid eating the marshmallow. He was building his willpower to accomplish the goal at hand, but after the 150th test, he would need very little willpower if any at all to complete the action and get the reward that he knows and loves!
brendalg4 (8 месяцев назад)
He talks about it in the book. He can't put his entire book into a 15-minute talk. But he does have a habit of using the wrong words for things I have noticed. He shouldn't be using the word willpower. The book is better than this talk and is way more detailed
Maureen Njeri N. (1 год назад)
I feel like most of what you have written above is essentially what is in the book. However, if you have not been able to develop a new habit despite the 'things that you already do' you need a trigger.

Vish i know it is a bit late but you can try the audiobook instead/or along the hard copy, Whenever I’m cleaning my room I’ll play it in the background instead of music to invest in my time, totally worth it if incorporated with taking practical steps to ensure you introduce new habits/eliminate bad ones, Good luck!
Saurabh Shrivastava (6 месяцев назад)

Vish (1 год назад)
Jordan Schlansky well, thanks.
Vish It was life changing because even that basic knowledge the author offers about habits, I lacked. Yes, it's boring because of the many examples I admit. To be honest I stopped reading halfway through and picked it up again after two weeks and finished it just because I was curious to see if there is anything more to learn about the subject. It's truly generic and not a self-help book (which I have no problem with that because I don't like them much), but it triggered an interest in me about the subject and I started learning more about it when I finished it. I wouldn't recommend anyone to finish the book. I struggled myself many times. But if you're in the first chapter, I would suggest to keep reading. There are some interesting facts he describes later. I found them interesting at least.
Vish (1 год назад)
Jordan Schlansky how?? It's boring for me.. I'm on the first chapter though. No offense intended.

So that's why I'm so hooked on YT. Routine: look left, scroll down. Reward: entertainment consumed. Cue: brain hungry for more. Quick, easy, endless looping.

You're automatically cued to watch the next video when you see all those thumbnails you could choose from. But yes the very first video watched would have a different cue.
Taran Ainsley (1 год назад)
All cues are your brain hungry for more. A better cue would be seeing the app on your home screen or a certain place or time where you watch YouTube

brendalg4 (8 месяцев назад)
I did not think the book was boring at all. I couldn't put it down. People think that he goes too fast and it's video, well he goes very slowly in the book. Then when you get up to the part of him explaining how a habit works you will instantly understand it because he slowly built you up to it. I guess some people aren't patient enough to be taught
blued glue (1 год назад)
the historical examples are there to compare
Of course the book cannot help you if you are not willing to apply what you learn in your life. Yes, the book gets to the point very slowly but I thought it was more interesting that way.

I've heard that the marshmallow story is incomplete. Followup research showed that children from wealthier backgrounds, where resources were common, were less distressed about leaving the marshmallow alone, accepting the promise of future doubling of the marshmallow. While children from poorer backgrounds, were more insecure about future promises, and would take the one they had on hand since they didn't expect a future additional marshmallow.

Also it might have been because poor children cant afford the marshmallow

+nyk4ever I'm saying that human behavior has many layers of meaning. No single motivation or rational is sufficient to define a behavior. We are not machines. As for the incomplete reference: http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/articles/2012-10-17/what-does-the-marshmallow-test-actually-test - well, I didn't feel like Googling it at the time....
nyk4ever (3 года назад)
+Nick Radonic I'm not saying this to be rude, but it would be nice to have some additional info on that part of the research. You would normally think that something like that would be either controlled or screened for somehow.

The only application of willpower (application of conscious cognitive processes) is to direct attention and focus. Once we attend to something--let's say a cookie--unconscious processes will determine of we choose to eat it or not, not the employment of will. Specifically, 300ms before we decide to eat the cookie or not the unconscious has made the decision for us.

I found this take on setting habits very useful.  I think I will keep in mind the notion of planting bits of "chocolate" (as in immediate reward) in our paths for all those things we have to do that have only long-range payoffs.  Kevin Bergen is showing me the power of replacing "I should" with "I want".  That is another powerful notion to drive motivation.
