Anyone who’s ever given up on a New Year’s resolution knows: Willpower eventually runs out. Whether the goal is personal or professional, the factor that really determines success is an individual’s commitment level. Heidi Reeder, PhD, is a highly regarded communication expert with a slew of high-level clients. In Commit to Win, she unpacks forty years of research by psychologists and economists to show how commitment boils down to just four variables: Treasures, Troubles, Contributions, and Choices. Showing how to harness these elements—and providing practical examples and action plans—Reeder gives everyone the tools to stop wishing—and start achieving.
Heidi Reeder, PhD, is an associate professor in the Department of Communication at Boise State University. She lives in Boise.

Editorial Reviews

"[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.”—Meg Selig, Licensed Professional Counselor, author of Changepower! 37 Secrets to Habit Change Success and the "Changepower" blog at  “Commit to read this superb book, now!  Heidi Reeder will help you reach your goals.”—Barbara Morgan, NASA Astronaut (ret.)
