James Clear writes a hugely popular blog and is the author of the best-seller, Atomic Habits. Book sales surpassed 1 million this year. James writes about the habits of human potential to find out how can we live better. We discuss the habits and rituals of athletes, artists and business leaders and tease out the common characteristics that make people the best at what they do. Atomic Habits is a proven framework to improve ourselves every day, which is essential to get your mojo working!   When James started his blog, he said he felt like an imposter. Did he feel the same way at any point writing this book? In the book, James mentioned he was creating small habits to help him fulfil his potential. Has he? Has James broken through his own plateau of latent potential? How do good habits reinforce our identity? How do I become the kind of person who would? Does the reinforcement of identity then cascade over to other areas of your life to create new good habits? What’s the hardest thing to pin down about bad habits? Once established habits stick; why do bad ones stick more than good ones? Why should we score habits? What’s batching? The aggregation of marginal gains Scale a habit down Creating momentum when creating a new habit Designing our environment to make success easier. Is where, as important as what or why? Is James a minimalist? Does he subscribe to that sort of ideal? Outcomes are the lagging measures of your habits, the accumulation of bad habits. James discusses how and why we should fall in love with boredom? What’s the difference between motion vs action? The higher the friction, the less likely that lousy habits form Why we have to be willing to experiment At the very end of the book, James thanks his wife Kristy for believing in him. Did he lack some self-belief?   LINKS   James Clear website JamesClear.com   Atomic Habits book https://jamesclear.com/atomic-habits   Athletic Greens https://athleticgreens.com/us   The Mojo Radio Show website themojoradioshow.com The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

What a Ride!”. Hunter S Thompson.
