James Clear is one of my favorite bloggers. He writes a lot about habit formation, and he does the research into what works. He inspires me to do and be better. This keynote speech is about 25 minutes long, and worth it if you need a dose of practical advice for “putting in the reps.” […]
My Sunday afternoon included a surprise lunch invitation that involved grilled burgers by Andrew and entertainment by Bo Davis.
