EP58: Finding Motivation One Small Step at a Time with Jeff Haden
Author Jeff Haden’s new book is a must read for anyone who is looking for the motivation to achieve any number of goals. In this engaging interview hear the experiences and stories that led Jeff to a number of successes throughout his life and eventually to the writing of this book.
“Jeff Haden knows what many people don’t: that success is less about searching for motivation and more about muddling through until you achieve something motivating. This clear, enjoyable book has plenty of advice on how to do that.” Adam Grant, New York Bestselling Author of Give and Take, Originals And Plan B with Sheryl Sandberg
“Jeff Haden’s writing lives at the intersection of science, emotion, success, and irresistible story telling. Once you’ve read The Motivation Myth, you’ll never sit around waiting for inspiration or motivation to hit, like some kind of gift from the gods. Instead, you’ll go out and get it.” Eric Schurenburg, Inc. Media President and Editor-in-Chief
“Jeff Haden is one of the biggest writers working online today not because he’s a genius but because he follows the advice in this book. It’s not about motivation, it’s about process–and hard work.” Ryan Holiday, Bestselling Author of The Obstacle Is The Way And The Ego Is The Enemy.
“Sometimes, your computer gets stuck, and the pros know you can press Command+Option+ESC to break out of the loop. Jeff Haden’s book is like that, but for your life. Read it and learn how to break out your negative loops without needing a complete shut-down.” Dharmesh Shah, HubSpot co-founder and CTO
Jeff Haden is a ghostwriter, speaker, LinkedIn Influencer, contributing editor to Inc., and the author of The Motivation Myth, a book that will be published in January by Penguin Random House. The Motivation Myth overturns the beloved (but false) idea that motivation leads to success; instead, small successes lead to constant motivation — and let you achieve your biggest goals while also having more fun.
