Ever since I read Made To Stick in 2011, I’ve been in love with Chip and Dan Heath. They released Switch, which I read in early 2012, which was a great take on persuasion. I signed up for their mailing list, and I received a great email on the last day of 2013 with advice for the new year: 4 research-backed tips for sticking to your New Year’s resolution. To join the Heath brothers’ mailing list, sign up here.
What I loved most about the email was the reminder of all of the free stuff on their website! If you sign in, you will see the free resources divided by book title. They have 8 items that go along with their book Decisive: How to Make Better Decisions in Life and Work including the entire first chapter, a workbook, a podcast, a book club guide, and a 1-page WRAP model summary for your desk.
You will also find resources for both Made to Stick (“Teaching That Sticks” is an amazing pamphlet for superteachers) and Switch as well as a completely free e-book and audio book for The Myth of the Garage, a collection of columns the brothers wrote from 2007 to 2011.
