Publisher's Summary

Stop not doing what you know you should do!

You might think laziness, lack of willpower, and/or low motivation are to blame for the fact that you aren't achieving your goals. But fascinating research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology has revealed another, far more likely possibility. One with the potential to transform your life in a dramatic way.

The typical excuses for not doing what you know you should - I'm too stressed out... I don't have the time... I don't have the energy, etc. - are, in fact, manifestations of a complex, interconnected web of psychological, chemical, and neurological factors.

When activated, these factors can effectively paralyze you - making it virtually impossible for you to take the actions needed to create change in your life.

In other words, even if you're highly motivated... if you've got these internal circumstances operating, you aren't going to be able to do it.

But while the biochemistry may be complex, the solutions are actually quite simple.

Dr. Nick Hall reveals these solutions - and the fascinating science behind them - in I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? You'll learn:

  • An extraordinarily powerful stress-fighting tool that very few people take advantage of.
  • An easy way to instantly regain control and stay focused in an emotional emergency.
  • Six things to do when you think you've taken on more than you can accomplish in the time you have.
  • The mistake almost everyone makes when they organize their to-do list.
  • A simple exercise that can instantly tell you which side of your brain is dominant at any given time.
  • The first-thing-in-the-morning action that will literally reset your internal clock and have a profoundly positive impact on your energy level for the rest of the day (and it is SO easy to do!).

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Disappointed

Good ideas lost in an incoherent presentation. No logical flow. In appropriate timing of entrance and exit music. Seemed the speaker is more interested in informing listeners of their own accomplishments.

The title is misleading

The writer talks about everything except what the title suggests he is going to talk about. Very boring with lots of stories about himself. A waste of my money. I was so disappointed I couldn’t even finish listening to this book and deleted it half way through.

Consistent mic feedback gave me headaches

The criteria was interesting but consistent microphone feedback gave me headaches. Very poor audio quality.

inspiring stories

the first few chapters were what I expected but then the material became scientific explanation of how brain works which is useful to know. Also the audio book is a compiled speeches of the author

Grow Up

Nick asks you to grow up - my parlance for reaching into your true potential and stop all the ‘blamethrowing’ we hide behind. OH, it’s my upbringing, my culture, my creed, my religion. No, it’s not. It’s your refusal to get responsible for your own journey. Nick shows you how. Out of all the self-help type books out there these days THIS is head and shoulders above the crowd. Thank you Nick....and for your hilarious humour woven throughout, making for a thoroughly enjoyable learning.

Not what I expected, but well worth it

I expected this to be more of a traditional audio book of an author or reader reading out loud the book. Instead this was more of a series of presentations and a podcast interview at the end. Wasn't sure I'd like it at first, but I loved the enlightening and helpful content Nick Hall presents and explains. Great for anyone who asks themselves the title's question: I know what to do, so why don't I do it?

Why this loud music?

Interesting subjects, but this music at the end of each part overwhelm the voice! Awful!
