#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.

Do not fear the conflict. Do not flee it. Where there is no struggle, there is no virtue. Where love and faith are not tempted, it is not possible to be sure whether they are really present. They are tried and revealed in adversity, in difficult and grievous circumstances.”

St. John Chrysostom (c. 347–407)

How To Attract Perfect Clients (And Repel The Clients Who Drive You Nuts)

If you’re a freelancer or service professional, you know the pain of the “problem client”. Once they are “inside your gates”, they cause nothing but trouble.

They complain about everything from the font size in the PDF you gave them, to the claim that you didn’t give enough detail in the product, or that you have too much information in the product. They pester you with the most requests, that go beyond the scope of what they paid for. They threaten you.

You’ve been there, surely. You’ve said to yourself, “Oh, great. He’s one of those. A problem client.”

It has been said that as Christians, we live under Grace and not under the Law. This is true, and I rejoice in it.

Some gleefully proclaim that our only requirement of those “living under Grace” is the one commandment of Jesus, of which He said, “This is my commandment: that you love one another.” That sounds nifty. But it’s not easy…
