Some brief overview of this book

Leo Babauta is the creator of Zen Habits, a blog about simplicity, habits and mindfulness. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and six kids. Leo started his journey in changing his life in 2005, when he quit smoking and then took up running.

Over the course of the next year or so, he ran a marathon, lost 30+ lbs. (and eventually 70 lbs.), became vegetarian and then lat Leo Babauta is the creator of Zen Habits, a blog about simplicity, habits and mindfulness. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and six kids.

Leo started his journey in changing his life in 2005, when he quit smoking and then took up running. Over the course of the next year or so, he ran a marathon, lost 30+ lbs. (and eventually 70 lbs.), became vegetarian and then later vegan, reduced and then eliminated his debt, started waking earlier, procrastinating less, and got rid of all his clutter.

He started Zen Habits to share what he learned in changing a few dozen habits, and today helps people change their lives through his books and his Sea Change habit program. Exerpts from this book: "This book is written out of gratitude for my wonderful readers, who've been a constant source of encouragement and support over the years. It has meant more than I can express.

Thank you". "The root of all of our problems is our inability to let go. I gleaned this idea from a book on Zen Buddhism one day a few years ago, and it struck me in its simplicity.

Could it be true? Consider this idea: a bird in flight. The bird lives totally in the moment, completely focused on its flight, perhaps using its sharp eyes to search for food.

It doesn't start thinking, "Why does it have to be so cold here? What do the other birds think of me? What am I going to do when I meet up with the other birds later?

Will I be successful at nest building? Why can't I have bigger breasts? Why can't I wake up earlier like the other birds?" And so on.

Of course, as humans we have bigger brains than the bird, and we can solve problems and create poetry and build skyscrapers. So we have lots more ability and lots more going on than the simple bird floating on the wind. These bigger brains, though, cause us all the problems that we have.

I don't mean the problems with poverty and disease, but the problems with overthinking things, feeling anxiety and frustration and depression and anger over the things that happen to us and might happen to us and have already happened to us but that we can't stop thinking about. So I've been testing out this Zen idea in the last few years, and the results have been amazing: I've reduced my stress, started procrastinating less, improved my relationships, increased my ability to deal with change, learned to change difficult habits, and become more present in my life. It's hard to overstate the case for the skill of letting go.

And the resistance most people feel to the idea of letting go is just as great".
