“Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement. The same way that money multiplies through compound interest, the effects of your habits multiply as you repeat them. They seem to make little difference on any given day, and yet the impact they deliver over the months and years can be enormous.”

– James Clear, Atomic Habits

Our daily habits matter more than we might think. We often overestimate the value of one-time changes and ignore the power of our daily routines, but in reality, we are the accumulation of the things that we do day after day, week after week. If you want better results, then forget about setting goals. Focus on your system instead. From day to day, you may not recognize the effects of your habits. But, looking at the span of 5 years, it’s easy to see how our everyday habits add up to something more.

Bad habits make time your enemy. Good habits make time your ally. Knowing how to change your habits means knowing how to confidently own and manage your days and focus on the behaviors that have the highest impact. This 4-part course will cover proven methods that make it easier to get started and follow through on what you set out to do, as well as:

  • Part 1 – The power of habits and how they shape your identity.
  • Part 2 – How to create good habits that last and break your bad habits using 4 simple steps.
  • Part 3 – Understand how environment exceeds motivation when it comes to making your habits stick.
  • Part 4 – How to stop procrastinating and the importance of an accountability partner.
