#147: 10 Life-Changing Habits To Adopt Now [Podcast]

A young woman has quit smoking, been promoted at work, and run a marathon. An untested CEO takes over one of America’s biggest companies and focuses on just one behavior pattern in the company, and very soon Alcoa is at the top of the Dow Jones. A marketer at Procter & Gamble notices a seemingly insignificant pattern while studying videos of how people make their beds. As a result, the company makes a small shift in advertising and Febreze goes from being one of the company’s biggest flops to earning a billion dollars a year. What do all three cases have in common?

10 Life-Changing (1)

Reporter and best-selling author Charles Duhigg believes that in each case, the success came from a shift in the patterns that shape our very lives – our habits. Habits do form our destiny, but we can consciously choose our habits. That shift – a change in your key habits – can help you transform your relationships, your finances, your health, your business, and your life.

In today’s episode, I’ll suggest 10 life-changing habits to adopt now. And I’ll give you the tools, tactics, and battle plan to help make those habits stick.

Other Reasons To Keep Listening

  • You’ll discover the best book I know of on the subject of habits, why they are so powerful, and how to change them.
  • I’ll attempt an answer to the question: “Is it right for Christians to choose to ‘upgrade’ their peer group in order to be more successful, or is that a selfish, sinful pursuit?”
  • You’ll get a direct link to the best $10 training on Omnifocus you’ll find anywhere.
