Still the Lizard

Transformation is closer than you think

by Steve Scanlon

Jake Davis only ever wanted to be better: better at work, better in his relationships, better at utilizing his skills and talents. But he suddenly realizes that after years of pursuing countless strategies for self-improvement, he has somehow failed to change in any meaningful way.

If not for hearing a random comment about the lizard brain, he might never have found the authentic transformation he was looking for. But those two words – lizard brain – started him on a quest to discover exactly what was inhibiting his growth, and how he could work instead toward lasting change.

Through Jake’s story, author Steve Scanlon reveals the four characteristics of the lizard brain that work against our rational minds to keep us reacting from a place of emotion and instinct. And he reveals six useful tools for counteracting the lizard brain’s limiting impulses.

It is a simple yet powerful message, delivered through a blend of storytelling and nonfiction, about the difficulty - and glorious possibility - of authentic and sustainable change.

"I had the pleasure of seeing Steve, the author, speak at a work event a couple of weeks ago and this topic hit home like nothing else has in a long time. I felt like I understood, and could forgive, myself for once. More importantly, I could do things to change the behavior that isn't serving me in life. That was the exciting part. This is a super quick and easy read, too. Enjoy and execute!"
