Joanna Jast is the bestselling author of “Laser Sharp Focus” and her latest book: “Hack Your Habits: 9 Steps to Finally Break Bad Habits & Start Thriving.” She has dreams of one day inventing a direct brain-computer interface so she can just upload/download knowledge and update her behaviour software in seconds. While the appropriate technology is or is not being invented, she works on improving the existing ways of absorbing knowledge and adapting to change.
“I have been on a journey to change careers (from healthcare to education) for a couple of years, trying to expedite the process of acquiring new knowledge and skills, building credibility and track record – with various results, but always learning from my experience.”
Her love for productivity, effectiveness and top-notch mental powers combined with her low threshold for boredom resulted in a passion for finding shortcuts and well-proven habit changing strategies that work.
Hack Your Habits is a result of Joanna's life-long experience in overcoming her natural laziness, sweet tooth and poor willpower to establish good habits and succeed in life.
The strategies described in this book helped Joanna complete her medical training with good grades, achieve native-level fluency in two foreign languages, write three non-fiction books, speed up her professional career, improve her level of physical fitness, lose weight, improve relationships with people and even master her emotional responses.
