Our conversation covers James’ entrepreneurial missteps that led to writing, following what worked to focus on habits, and lessons to build a large audience. We then turn to Atomic Habits, covering the definition of a habit, four steps to creating habits, importance of identity, obstacles to good habit formation, and the practical application of these principles in James’ life. We close with James’ New Years resolutions for 2021 and his advice for bringing yours to fruition.
