Today I speak with James Clear, a writer and speaker focused on habits, decision making, and continuous improvement. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Atomic Habits (currently #1). The book has sold over 8 million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than 50 languages. His book offers a proven framework to build good habits and break bad ones. Atomic Habits will teach you how to make the small changes that will transform your habits and deliver remarkable results.
James and I discuss the special challenges parents face building habits when there is no such thing as atypical day in parenthood. James shares ways to avoid common pitfalls people face when they are trying to establish a new habit, and so much more! I am SO EXCITED for you to hear this interview!
