Description

Cofounder of the Stanford d.school Bernie Roth shows you how the power of design thinking can help you achieve goals you never thought possible.

Did you know that achievement can be learned? As Bernie Roth explains, achievement is a muscle. And once you learn how to flex it, you'll be able to meet life's challenges and reach your goals.

Based on a legendary course Roth has taught at Stanford University for several decades, The Achievement Habit employs the remarkable insights that stem from design thinking to help us realize the power we all have within to change our lives for the better. By ridding ourselves of issues that stand in the way of reaching our full potential, we gain the confidence finally to do things we've always wanted to do. Combining design thinking, problem-solving, creativity, communication skills, and life adjustments, readers will learn:

  • Why trying and doing are two different things
  • Why using reasons (excuses), even legitimate ones, to explain one's behavior is self-defeating
  • How to change your self-image into one of a doer and achiever
  • How subtle language changes can resolve existential dilemmas and barriers to action
  • How to build resiliency by reinforcing what you do rather than what you accomplish
  • How to be open to learning from your own experience and from those around you

Our behavior and relationships can be transformed-if we choose to, we can be mindful and control our intentions to create habits that make our lives better. And with this thoughtful book as your guide, you can.

    Not up to the mark. The title is misleading and does not guide you to have the achievement habit
  • (5/5)
    A really good book. I highly recommend it, it change the way i look at my life.
  • (3/5)
    It was okay. Maybe a little bit misleading and I don't agree with some points especially the reason part, but I see where the author is coming from. Still a good read regarding the importance of decisions and your choice to react or response to situations. If you didn't mind this book, I suggest checking out Barking up the wrong Tree. A very good read.
  • (5/5)
    Worth listening this book. There are lots of workable action points. I wish to re read it.
  • (5/5)
    Enjoyable narration, grounded advice, with broad subjects covered lightly. Give it a listen if you're looking for insights and methods to develop self efficacy. I'll likely purchase a physical copy to revisit and properly mull over certain ideas the author touched on.
  • (4/5)
    It is a good collection of tools and exercises to help you rethink and rebuild yourself.

    Helpful book. It's easy to listen, the narrator has a nice voice.
  • (4/5)
    Great material to listen to, through and through. Excellent narration!
    Unfortunately, the author’s taken it upon himself to ‘decide’ for us what “love” means (that it’s the materialistic sort - understandable given he’s an engineer, ok) - and that “love” does NOT belong in marriage. Perhaps he’d be right if materialistic love didn’t belong in marriage, but just pontificates that LOVE itself is not beneficial/helpful/suitable in a marriage. Disappointing and needless thing for him as engineer to push.
  • (5/5)
    Title is a bit mis leading. But the content of the book is really great and worth listening.
  • (1/5)
    It's more a book about one's personal life and view on it, rather than an universal blue-print for sucess, the title is misleading, and the hype around this book is clearly not justified.
  • (4/5)
    I found Chapter 7 and 9 as having the deepest discourse. Brilliant piece of work. Many thanks to Prof. for sharing invaluable lessons from his life experiences.
  • (4/5)
    I loved everything in this book. I will make it the manual for my life.
  • (4/5)
    Very helpful book changed some outlooks that I have and very well thought out exercises
  • (4/5)
    I liked it. The "your turn" activities were interesting. The title is somewhat misleading, this book doesn't give you habits per say, more like a new way to look at yourself and your understanding of the world. Worthwhile to acknowledge you could change your perception filter

    The utility of the concepts in this book is high.

    I’ve listened through it about four times now. At first, I was peeved at how infrequently the phrase “Achievement Habit” is actually mentioned. However, in repeatedly listening I discovered that really the Achievement Habit comes down to just banishing excuses from your thoughts and developing a “bias towards action” paired with the ability to apply design thinking concepts in generating potential solutions to your problems.

    The rest of the book is just focused on how to deal with some less obvious aspects of how to put the author’s advice into practice.

    This was also my first introduction to the framework of design thinking, and I think that its presentation in this book is clear and practical for a beginner to apply.

    Although many of the things in this book were things that I had already applied to my life, it was amazing to see the eloquence in which the author explained these concepts with excellent examples and analogies. I will be able to use the material in this book to not only help myself, but others in my life as well, and I look forward to that.
