Today, we’re going to talk about a significant part of our life is structured and shaped by our habits and how that impacts us. We are also going to talk about how tiny habits are the fundamental unit of a much larger system. Most importantly, we’re going to talk about why men are so extreme with their habits. Most of us go out too hard when starting a new habit that we beat ourselves up if we can’t continue it. James specifically explains why tiny habits are much more sustainable and lead to large results.
