Description

Stop not doing what you know you should do!

You might think laziness, lack of willpower, and/or low motivation are to blame for the fact that you aren't achieving your goals. But fascinating research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology has revealed another, far more likely possibility. One with the potential to transform your life in a dramatic way.

The typical excuses for not doing what you know you should - I'm too stressed out... I don't have the time... I don't have the energy, etc. - are, in fact, manifestations of a complex, interconnected web of psychological, chemical, and neurological factors.

When activated, these factors can effectively paralyze you - making it virtually impossible for you to take the actions needed to create change in your life.

In other words, even if you're highly motivated... if you've got these internal circumstances operating, you aren't going to be able to do it.

But while the biochemistry may be complex, the solutions are actually quite simple.

Dr. Nick Hall reveals these solutions - and the fascinating science behind them - in I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? You'll learn:

  • An extraordinarily powerful stress-fighting tool that very few people take advantage of.
  • An easy way to instantly regain control and stay focused in an emotional emergency.
  • Six things to do when you think you've taken on more than you can accomplish in the time you have.
  • The mistake almost everyone makes when they organize their to-do list.
  • A simple exercise that can instantly tell you which side of your brain is dominant at any given time.
  • The first-thing-in-the-morning action that will literally reset your internal clock and have a profoundly positive impact on your energy level for the rest of the day (and it is SO easy to do!).

Why this loud music?

Interesting subjects, but this music at the end of each part overwhelm the voice! Awful!

Disappointed

It's not really a book, per se. This is just multiple recordings of presentations. Did I miss something in the description?

Big Disappointment!

What disappointed you about I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It??

This is a 10-hour compilation of physiology/pathophysiology medical lectures. Seriously, 50 minutes of every hour is nothing but straight physiology and pathophysiology. And he doesn’t just graze the subject either he goes very deep into the subject passing multiple layers that will completely lose the average listener. The other 10 minutes actually has to do with what the title suggests.

Even being a medical professional myself I quickly became annoyed and wanted him to get to the point instead of describing every minute detail of the anabolic/catabolic response, neurological pathway, and the cellular chemical responses of the brain etc.

Honestly I felt a little conned when I found out this wasn’t an audio book but was just a bunch of lectures he compiled from speaking at various events. Sometimes he even asks questions to the audience and then you have to listen to some random person’s question/response. He even repeats himself too and uses the same examples from a previous lecture you listened too 2 hours prior.

Sure there are a few gems here and there but after the 1st hour I found myself wishing I purchased something else.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nick Hall again?

Probably not.

Title & description are misleading

What disappointed you about I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It??

I purchased this book based on the title and description and assumed it was about self discipline and why I don't do what I know I should be doing. Why don't I go to the gym? Why don't I do my bookkeeping regularly? Why do I procrastinate on my taxes? etc ... Instead it was a detail heavy book about physiology and why athletes get sick after competitions and how people with friends live longer, etc... Near the beginning of the book, I did learn something that I could use with regards to what the title suggest, but to be honest I can't even remember what it was at this point, and the book is cut up into such large chapters that I don't expect I'll ever find it if I go back looking for it.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

One of two things would've made this book more enjoyable:1. A completely different book which is inline with what the title & description suggest it's about.2. A title which describes what the book is actually about.

What does Nick Hall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Don't get me wrong, this would be a rather interesting book and the author has a lot of information on the subject. He's a great speaker and brings a lot of value.

What character would you cut from I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It??

n/a

Any additional comments?

Bring titles more in line with the book's actual content and do a better job with book chapters. Ideally, audiobook chapters would have actual titles instead of just 'Chapter 1', 'Chapter 2', etc ... and they'd be small enough that you could actually find things.I'm extremely disappointed, have buyers remorse, and would've returned this book if I could.

Good, but not what I expected

This book is fascinating, yet not what I was expecting. Most of it is on nutrition and his the brain / body works, which was interesting to me but only because I am in healthcare. There was good ideas on beliefs, visualization, etc. However, the interview at the end was horrible. The "interviewer", some big-wig at Nightingale, had the most insincere candor and was obviously not there for the interview, and was a huge insult to our intelligence. Otherwise, a good listen.

a little too detailed for my blood.

although dr. Hall explains the psychological Parts in detail I feel like he goes to detail with it. At some points he loses me or my interest so to speak. The ending of the book did get to the point.

Not what I expected but still worth my time.

The title of this series is a bit misleading if you ask me. While Mr Hall does try to elaborate on the relevance of the title, I thought that the take away from this material was anything but "I know what to do so why don't I do it". Hall is a very experienced, intelligent man and uses his research and personal stories to relay a lot of interesting, scientific knowledge about an array of topics, yet even after completing the series, I still don't completely know why "I know what to do so why don't I do it". I would recommend this to the people who are interested in the science (and big scientific terms) behind our physical, mental and emotional designs, but for those who are frustrated or overwhelmed by scientific mumbo-jumbo, do not venture into this series because you will be in over your head (and vocabulary)!

Disapointed

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The author, did not stay on the topics but I felt he was boasting about his accomplishments.

Has I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I will be more selected but I will keep away for this author.

What didn’t you like about Nick Hall’s performance?

everything, I lost interest because he did not stay on the topics nor hold my interest.

What character would you cut from I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It??

Should be called the science of behavior

The book was excellent not what I expected but the scientific evidence behind our habits and behaviors was very enlightening. Learned a great and would recommend it to anyone.

Great info.

Intellectually stimulating, but informationally overwhelming at times. There were times where I had to review a chapter several times in order to understand it.

skip to the last chapter and you should be good.

The title is VERY misleading. His approach is to technical for the average Joe, in fact I would say he talks over most people's heads.

Is almost pure clickbait

Nick Hall knows a lot about biochemistry, which he delves into great detail with. The problem is that the title leads one to believe that the book is a mptivational, more psychlogical treatise.

Of course it isn't a surprise that athletes run a higher risk of illness at higher states of exhaustion. Neither is that being stressed isn't always healthy.

The actual topic, however, never surfaced. Add to that that the audio is mediocre quality, there's introductory jingles at times, advertisements for Nick Hall, and it's just recordings of live events.

My recommendation is to avoid this ripoff.

Great. Simply, great.

The nice thing about this audio-book is that's it not an audio-book but a live recording of an event. That makes digesting the content a lot easier.
If you have read already other books about self-development than this one won't bear any big news or surprises. Still, there are a many little things that shift your perception and open up a new perspective. You will have to listen to it a couple of times to be able to develop a plan for yourself. Nick Hall offers many insights with a solid scientific background. It's not a must read but certainly, it is NOT a waste of money an time.
