I’m thrilled to have James Clear with me to talk about the tool we use to solve the problems of life with as little effort and energy as possible. That tool, of course, is habits.

This is a subject that I became intensely focused on several years ago when I realized that it wasn’t enough to teach my clients how to do things like meditate, breathe, and nourish themselves with whole foods; I needed to teach them how to form good habits, hence my evolution from being a practitioner to coaching people on how to actually implement the core competencies of self-care. James Clear is author and speaker focused on habits, decision-making, and continuous improvement. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Entrepreneur, Time, and on CBS This Morning. His website,, receives millions of visitors each month and hundreds of thousands (including me) subscribe to his popular email newsletter. He is also a regular speaker at Fortune 500 companies and his work is used by teams in the NFL, NBA, and MLB.

Through his online course, The Habits Academy, Clear has taught more than 10,000 leaders, managers, coaches, and teachers.
