I’m happy to announce that I’m offering my Zen Habits book to purchase, for the first time since I put it on Kickstarter at the end of 2014.
The book is called, “Zen Habits: Mastering the Art of Change.”
The Kickstarter campaign did extremely well, and people gave me wonderful feedback on the book. I didn’t allow anyone to buy it after that, because it was a limited, special edition.
However, I have about 500 copies sitting in a warehouse, so I thought I’d offer them to you guys!
Some things to know about the book:
1. It has my most important learnings about forming habits, being mindful, finding happiness, and dealing with changes in life.
2. It is a hard-copy (not digital), paperback book.
3. It is beautiful.
4. I’m very proud of it, and everyone who has given me feedback on the book has been very happy with it.
5. I won’t print any more after these sell out.

What It's About
This book is for anyone who has struggled.
Anyone who has gone through loss, who is struggling with a major life change, who is frustrated.
Anyone who, like me, has struggled to make changes in their lives. I was stuck there 9 years ago, and I'd lost hope. Then I scraped and dug my way out of it, and I am proof that change is possible.
This book will help you make any change:
- Eating healthy
- Getting out of debt
- Overcoming procrastination
- Losing weight
- Dealing with frustrations & stress
- Improving relationships
- Simplifying & decluttering
- Meditating and being mindful
- Dealing with major life changes
- And much more
This book starts about being about habit change, but it's much more ... it's about how to live, and how to master the process of change. It's about dealing with major life changes, and small frustrating ones too.
In the process of creating a small change in your life, by following the steps in this book ... you'll start to develop core Zen skills I've learned from my studies, to find peace, contentment, and the ability to adjust to situations as they change.
In practicing these skills, you begin to truly understand them. And in understanding these skills, you'll start to overcome your struggles.
This is a volume of condensed learning about the process of change, and the nature of our minds. And a how-to on how to change your habits and overcome procrastination.
The Heart of Any Problem
Going deeper than the mechanics of habit change, this book will teach you how to get at the heart of any problem you face in life. Any struggle you're facing: procrastination, unhappiness with ourselves, anger with others, stress and worry, dealing with loss or illness.
What is the heart of any struggle? It's attachment to our ideals. Attachment to comfort and the way we'd like things, attachment to how we think people should act, how we should act, how things should go.
We all face this problem, and we can't avoid having ideals. These ideals can be useful, but when we become too tightly attached to them, we create problems for ourselves: frustration, irritation, anger, disappointment, stress, worry.
This stops us from making habit changes, and makes dealing with other people and major changes in our lives much more difficult.
By getting to the heart of your struggles, you will find the way to overcome them.
