Using Atomic Habits to Get 1% Better Everyday, October 31 @ 11:30 a.m. (CDT)
Join New York Times Bestselling author of Atomic Habits, James Clear, as he explains how the surprising power of small habits have a huge impact on our lives. Our future is based on the actions we take each day which means that our habits compound over time to create our future selves. Drawing from Clear’s book: “If you’re having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn’t you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.”
