Podcast Episode Recommendation: Focused 64: The Power of Habits

Link to show

I really enjoyed this first episode of Focused (previously Free Agents) with David and Mike. I particulary liked their discussion of James Clear’s new book Atomic Habits. Additionally, they talked about framing habits and actions in terms of identity, which is helpful to think about.

The switch from Free Agents to Focused is a welcome one. While I always gained a lot of value from Free Agents I think the more productivity focused show will be even more helpful. You should give it a listen.

Summary

David and Mike kick off Focused with an in-depth look at why New Year’s resolutions usually fail. They discuss the power of tiny gains, why systems are more important than goals, and how you can change your identity by implementing better habits.
