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.

How to Stick With Good Habits Every Day by Using the “Paper Clip Strategy”

Success is often a result of committing to the fundamentals over and over again. We want to be consistent with our workouts, but struggle to make it into the gym.

We know we should write more Thank You notes or eat healthier meals or read more books, but can’t seem to find the motivation to get it done.

We’d like to achieve our goals, but still procrastinate on them. What makes the difference? Why do some good habits stick while others fail?

Clear believes the “Paper Clip Strategy” works particularly well because it creates a visual trigger that can help motivate you to perform a habit with more consistency.

Making progress is satisfying, and visual measures — like moving paperclips or hairpins or marbles — provide clear evidence of your progress. As a result, they reinforce your behavior and add little bit of immediate satisfaction to any activity.

Here are a few reasons visual cues work well for building new good habits:

  • Visual cues remind you to start a behavior.
  • Visual cues display your progress on a behavior.
  • Visual cues can have an additive effect on motivation.
  • Visual cues can be used to drive short-term and long-term motivation.

Based on research and his new book Atomic Habits, Clear discovered that mastering the fundamentals is what makes the difference.

The same is true for your goals. There is no secret sauce. There is no magic bullet.
Good habits are the magic bullet.
