Atomic Habits: How to Get 1% Better Every Day
Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. Are you in the physical shape that you want to be in? Are you optimizing your talents at work? Is your team achieving its targets? All are a result of habits. What we repeatedly do, each and every day, ultimately forms the results we enjoy and the goals we achieve. Change your habits, change your systems, and you’ll transform your life, team and organization.

James Clear explains this breakthrough approach to creating transformational change. He breaks down the science to show how change works at the most granular level and how the accumulation of just one percent improvements each day leads to massive change over time. Using inspiring examples of individuals and teams that have achieved extraordinary goals like winning the Tour de France or reinventing manufacturing processes, James shows how any goal can be achieved by adopting the right habits and systems, the right way. A transformative talk that leaves you seeing any challenge through the lens of positive and negative habits and equipped with proven strategies to achieve any goal.

How to Stick With Good Habits Every Day by Using the “Paper Clip Strategy”
Success is often a result of committing to the fundamentals over and over again. We want to be consistent with our workouts, but struggle to make it into the gym. We know we should write more Thank You notes or eat healthier meals or read more books, but can’t seem to find the motivation to get it done. We’d like to achieve our goals, but still procrastinate on them. What makes the difference? Why do some good habits stick while others fail?

Clear believes the “Paper Clip Strategy” works particularly well because it creates a visual trigger that can help motivate you to perform a habit with more consistency. Making progress is satisfying, and visual measures — like moving paperclips or hairpins or marbles — provide clear evidence of your progress. As a result, they reinforce your behavior and add little bit of immediate satisfaction to any activity. Here are a few reasons visual cues work well for building new good habits:

  • Visual cues remind you to start a behavior.
  • Visual cues display your progress on a behavior.
  • Visual cues can have an additive effect on motivation.
  • Visual cues can be used to drive short-term and long-term motivation.

    Based on research and his new book Atomic Habits, Clear discovered that mastering the fundamentals is what makes the difference. The same is true for your goals. There is no secret sauce. There is no magic bullet. Good habits are the magic bullet.

    “James is a strong, confident facilitator and his message was easily understood by the audience. He did a great job teaching and facilitating a conversation with our group about habits. It was a great experience and our team got a lot of valuable ideas from the time spent.”

    “Mastermind Talks is an invite-only event for high-level executives, CEOs, and startup founders. It’s a demanding and intelligent audience. I was lucky enough to have James lead a roundtable session at our event, and to date it has not only been our most attended roundtable, but the highest rated by our audience as well. I am blessed to be in the position where I have access to a deep pool of some of the most well-known thought leaders of our time. When it comes to habits, James is the first expert that comes to mind. I would have James back at our event in a heartbeat. I can’t recommend working with him enough.”
