Notes on Stick With It: A Scientifically Proven Process for Changing Your Life-for Good

I recently completed the book Stick With It: A Scientifically Proven Process for Changing Your Life-for Good by Sean D. Young. It's an excellent book I picked up after hearing Sean interviewed on the Art of Manliness podcast.
In the book Sean discusses a scientific approach for changing behavior – either your own or that of others (use wisely!). He talks about why most self-help books fail to bring about lasting change, and the SCIENCE model he's created that's been proven to work.
Below are my “cliff notes” on the book. Let me state up front that I have written, at times verbatim, passages from the book in these notes, though mainly it's my summarization of what was written.
I hope you find these notes useful, and I highly recommend you both listen to the interview with Sean, and pick up a copy of his book.
