192: Creating Positive Habits Utilizing the Habit Cycle


Your life is a series of habits, good and bad.  Even though habit talk is very trendy these days there is a great deal of merit to discussing them.  Each of us has heard that motivation and willpower are the keys to making a habit stick.  The truth is that neither of those things play a significant part in the process.  As science tells us the truth is that what really counts is a habit cycle.  Today I defer to the expertise of James Clear and Charles Duhigg for their take on the habit cycle.
