Forget about New Year's Resolutions! Let's talk about the small habits we do every single day that define our entire year...or even our whole life!
This episode of the Align Podcast is a rerun of my interview with James Clear about his New York Times bestseller, “Atomic Habits,” which has sold over 5 million copies worldwide.
While explaining how habits are formed, James argues that we can transform our lives just by committing to small, consistent behavioral changes. Simply put, set a GOAL and build HABITS that align with it! Good habits don't even need to be grand; they can be as simple as placing your phone away from you for a certain period to avoid checking it 200x a day and make space for things that matter.
Need help in breaking bad habits?
Listen to the entire episode to understand why we repeat an action (good or bad) over and over again and how to make true changes that last longer than any of your New Year's Resolutions!
Besides being a successful author, James Clear is a weightlifter and travel photographer. His presence is sought by big companies worldwide for his insightful speeches on habit improvement and personal development.
