3 IDEAS FROM James Clear


Mastery requires both impatience and patience.
The impatience to have a bias toward action, to not waste time, and to work with a sense of urgency each day.
The patience to delay gratification, to wait for your actions to accumulate and to trust the process.


When making plans, think big.
When making progress, think small.


A simple strategy that will save you so many headaches: don’t care about winning trivial arguments.
Did someone say something you don’t agree with? Smile, nod, and move on to more important things.
Life is short. Learning to not care about having the last word will save you so much time.
