Four Ways to Build and Upgrade Your Habits
Habits... How are they powerful? How are they dangerous? Intuitively, we know that your habits are the only things standing between you and everything you want in life. “All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits — practical, emotional, and intellectual — systematically organized for our weal or woe, and bearing us irresistibly toward our destiny, whatever the latter may be.” –William James But in practice, doing the work necessary to upgrade your habits isn’t easy. In fact, it might be one of the most difficult battles you’ll ever fight. The Power of Habit is one of the most important primers and science backed starting points for upgrading your habits. The book contains vital reminders: “Once you know a habit exists, you have the responsibility to change it . . . others have done so . . . That, in some ways, is the point of this book. Perhaps a sleep-walking murderer can plausibly argue that he wasn’t aware of his habit, and so he doesn’t bear responsibility for his crime, but almost all of the other patterns that exist in most people’s lives — how we eat and sleep and talk to our kids, how we unthinkingly spend our time, attention and money — those are habits that we know exist. And once you understand that habits can change, you have the freedom and the responsibility to remake them. Once you understand that habits can be rebuilt, the power of habit becomes easier to grasp and the only option left is to get to work.” ― Charles Duhigg,The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business We’ve found four principals to help effectively build and upgrade habits. Tune in to today’s episode where we’ll cover all four and how to apply them! This episode is brought to you by Audible!

Can you do a podcast episode about 18- 20 year olds in the real world. Maybe talk about what to do after high school instead of college and/or how to get started on the right path in life early on?
