EPISODE 458: Tendencies, Habits & Change

Every few months a new productivity book hits the shelves, and of course, I read it. I’m a sucker for personal growth hacks. Do I need to fix my morning routine? What about a gratitude journal? Should I drink lemon water or celery juice in the morning? I joke that I’m a walking cliche – but that doesn’t change my behavior.

The reality is that personal growth is, well, personal. What works for me might not work for you. Your organizational system, your calendar or filing system that changed your life might do nothing to help me get things done. One this week’s podcast, you’ll meet returning guest and ultra-practical self help author, Gretchen Rubin.
