Every year on January 1, millions of people set the intention to start new habits. By halfway through the month, most of those habits have fallen by the wayside. Why do we find it so hard to stick to the habits that are good for us?

Stephen Guise is an international bestselling author who is known for his actionable behavioral change advice. Guise is an expert on good habits and as well as his books on the topic, he runs a blog where he shares everything he learns about habit setting.

Guise's 2013 book, Mini Habits, has provided numerous readers with an effective habit formation strategy, thanks to the simplicity of its concepts. Guise strategically walks through the science of habits, highlighting how our brain sees and uses them and explaining why that means motivation is unreliable. Guise notes that we should rely on willpower instead.
