An Interview with James Clear: How to Start and Build Better Habits

James Clear is the author of the bestselling book, Atomic Habits.

With the New Year at our door, I asked James to share his advice about how to start and build better habits.

Here’s what you’ll hear about during in the interview conversation:

  1. Mindset: How long does it truly take to build a habit, and how is that mindset at odds with what most people do for their New Year’s resolutions?

  2. Simplicity: How do you keep from burning yourself out? How many new habits and routines should you incorporate as part of a New Year’s resolutions?

  3. Purpose: Why do habits even matter? Why should you pay attention to your habits and routines? Can building better habits make you a better person?
