Interview with James Clear

In this episode, I interview author, entrepreneur, weightlifter, and travel photographer James Clear.

James has written an amazing eBook on how to transfer your habits. He is a firm believer that if you can master your habits, you can master your life.

A Duke University study showed that 45% of what we do each day is habitual. James came on the show to chat about how he coaches people to transform their habits as well as how he maintains a high level of fitness even with a busy schedule.

He is also an accomplished athlete who in 2008 was named an Academic All-American for baseball by ESPN and in 2012 he was a finalist for the Travel Photographer of the Year award.
