In Commit to Win, Heidi Reeder, PhD, unpacks over forty years of research by psychologists and economists to show that the key to reaching any goal, whether it's to hit the gym more often or to finally quit that dead-end job, isn't motivation, willpower, or determination. It's commitment. Busting the myths most of us believe about commitment, Reeder shows that it all comes down to four variables: treasure, troubles, contributions and choices.

"[Reeder's] book is delightfully practical as well as informative, packed with intelligence and clarity of both thought and expression. Learned, yet eminently accessible, it is a rare pleasure." "The Economist" " Commit to Win "is at once readable and rich with ideas, both fun and important. Heidi Reeder reveals the complexities and dispels the myths that surround commitment, and sketches a compelling framework that explains why committing is sometimes so difficult, and how to right the ship when commitment wanes. Well worth reading if you ve ever struggled to follow through on a plan that seemed important but somehow fell by the wayside. Adam Alter, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Drunk Tank Pink: And Other Unexpected Forces That Shape How We Think, Feel, and Behave" This book sheds light on a crucial (but often overlooked) question: Why do some people persist with important goals while others do not? A must read for those interested in the science of achievement. Cal Newport, author of "So Good They Can't Ignore You" What a useful and entertaining book! Heidi Reeder s simple explanation of the 4-element formula for commitment can help you into--or out of--a commitment such as a relationship, a workout routine, a job, or a project. A valuable addition to the psychological literature.
