Why habits are the "compound interest" of self-improvement
How To Build Awesome Habits
How can you see dramatic improvement in your personal and professional life? The natural impulse is to attempt big steps to improve. However, taking big steps often results in failure or only temporary gains. You rarely see the permanent results you want. The key to successful change is in small habits. In this entertaining talk, James Clear focuses on the science of small habits, how they work, and how their effects compound and multiply over time. Through research and personal stories, audiences will not only be entertained but also come away with practical strategies they can immediately apply in their personal and professional lives.
James Clear is a personal development virtual keynote speaker and the author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Atomic Habits. His entertaining talks teach audiences about small habits, decision-making, and continuous improvement. James doesn’t merely report the research of others. He tries out the concepts for himself as he experiments with building better habits as an entrepreneur, writer, and weightlifter. In the end, his talks end up being one part storytelling, one-part academic research, and one-part personal experiment, forming a colorful blend of inspirational stories, academic science, and hard-earned wisdom.
As of 2021, his book Atomic Habits has sold over 4 million copies worldwide, enjoyed over a year straight on the New York Times bestseller list, spent over 33 weeks on the Wall Street Journal bestselling list, and topped Amazon’s Most Sold List for over 31 weeks. Readers have given the book consistently high ratings: Amazon (4.8/5 stars), Audible (4.8/5 stars), and Goodreads (4.32/5 stars). His thought leadership regularly appears in the New York Times, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, Medium, and Time, and he is a regular guest for CBS This Morning.
In addition, he helps millions of visitors each month through his website and hundreds of thousands subscribe through his popular email newsletter. He is a regular speaker at Fortune 500 companies and his work has been used by teams in the NFL, NBA, and MLB. Through his online course, The Habits Academy, Clear has taught more than 10,000 leaders, managers, coaches, and teachers how to improve.
“I am thrilled we were able to bring James’ content (and his book!) to our people of ESPN. The numbers we had today for this event have been the highest we’ve seen for a keynote speaker since we went 100% virtual. The amount of texts, emails and DM’s I got were unbelievable. The attendees absolutely loved the content!”
“James Clear was amazing. A 10 out of 10. From the moment he showed up (on time) to the moment he left, he brought a peace and calm with him everywhere he went. He was flexible and worked well with the technicians to set up his presentation. He demonstrated humility and discipline in his approach all while allowing for flexibility. He had practiced his speaking and story telling so that it was flawless yet could roll with any adjustment needed to reach the audience."

“Mastermind Talks is an invite-only event for high-level executives, CEOs, and startup founders. It’s a demanding and intelligent audience. I was lucky enough to have James lead a roundtable session at our event, and to date it has not only been our most attended roundtable, but the highest rated by our audience as well.”
