I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, EdTech, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of the Crush School Series of Books, which help students understand how their brains process information and learn. I also wrote The Power of Three: How to Simplify Your Life to Amplify Your Personal and Professional Success, but be warned that it's meant for adults who want to thrive and are comfortable with four letter words.

Chapter 7 explains why habits are so hard to break and how to make new habits effectively. Here's a sample:

Some habits are not so good. And, they are hard to break. Your teachers and parental units are on your case to STOP IT, whatever IT is. You try. Not happening. You tell yourself you will not procrastinate this time around. Then you do. You have the best intentions. I know. You know. But your brain doesn’t care. It does it’s own thing.

You have to train your brain.

This book will show you how.
