Whether trying to lose weight, save money, get organised or advance on the job, we're always setting goals and making resolutions, but rarely following through on them. According to long-time Wall Street technology strategist Caroline Arnold, the """"big push"""" strategy of the New Year's resolution is designed to fail, because it broadly pits our limited willpower stores against an autopilot of entrenched behaviours and attitudes that is far more powerful. To change ourselves permanently, we need to focus our self-control on precise behavioural targets and overwhelm them.

Review:

"Rich...Wisdom from time immemorial--take it a day at a time and moderation in all things--reworked by Arnold to morph broad goals into manageable, measurable microresolutions."--Kirkus
"Small Move, Big Change is a rare self-improvement book that actually works. With the right mix of science and practical examples, Caroline Arnold offers powerful advice for motivating ourselves to save more, eat less, get organized, boost our willpower, and even keep our New Year's resolutions. It's the most useful guide to getting things done since Getting Things Done."
--Adam Grant, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Give and Take
"The only thing this book did for me was to get me to floss regularly, which led to less red wine, which led to snapping at my kids less, which led to them doing the dishes more. Who knew that flossing could change your life?
--Dr. Wendy Walsh, CNN's Human Behavior Expert
"Didn't expect to -- but I love this book! From page one, Small Move, Big Change is filled with wisdom, insight, and whip-smart "micro" suggestions you can actually implement to change your life. Caroline Arnold manages to be funny, down to earth, and hard-hitting all at the same time. This is a must-read."
- Amy Chua, Yale Law professor and author of Battle of the Tiger Mother and The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups
