PASO ROBLES CITY LIBRARY BOOK GROUP
January 17 (7pm)

Kick off the new year with a stimulating discussion of why habits exist and how implementing keystone habits can mean the difference between failure and success. In The Power of Habit, Charles Duhigg explains the science of how habits work in our brains and how the right habits can be the key to success in any number of life's endeavors— losing weight, exercising regularly, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, and building revolutionary companies and social movements. According to Duhigg, habits aren’t destiny and armed with these new discoveries we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives. The public is invited to join in the discussion on Jan. 17 at 7pm in the Library Conference Room. Call Karen Christiansen at: 237-3870 for more info.
