Atomic Habits With James Clear

Can you get remarkable results from tiny changes in your habits? Habit and performance expert and deep researcher James Clear not only says yes, he proves the point in his new book “Atomic Habits”.

In fact, he says: “We don’t rise to the level of our goals, we fall to the level of our systems.”

James talks to us about how consultants and other experts can use their habits to drive their success AND enjoy the process.


“Big goals make you feel bad about yourself.”—JC

“When you focus on the practice instead of the performance, you can enjoy the present moment and improve at the same time.”—JC

“I’ve found that goals are good for planning your progress and systems are good for actually making progress.”—JC

“What you do now is a mirror image of the type of person you believe that you are (either consciously or subconsciously).”—JC

“You can’t rely on being motivated. You have to become the type of person you want to be, and that starts with proving your new identity to yourself.”—JC

“Amateurs are the victims of their habits.”—JC
