Sep 17, 2018 | 0 comments

If habits decide your future and you decide your habits, what are the habits you can acquire today that will help you create your ideal future?

We want to help you form the power habits that will help you achieve extraordinary results, in every area of your life. That’s why we wrote The ONE Thing, that’s why we created the Living Your ONE Thing Community, and that’s why we’re sharing this conversation with someone who has built a career focused on helping others create better habits, make better decisions, and live better lives.

Our guest is James Clear, author of the upcoming book Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones (releasing 10/16/18), and in this episode, he will share how you can become the architect of your habits, rather than continue to be a victim of them.

We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions. If you want to sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.

What is that two-inch domino you CAN knock down that will help you form a power habit?

Sure, putting on your shoes and going out the door will not give you washboard abs – but does it make going for a run easier? It sure does!  And if you set yourself up for success by focusing on that ONE, small, two-minute action, then you will start experiencing the cumulative benefits of getting just 1% better every day.
