Solution 1: Cut Scope "Something has to get out but I don't care how--what I will compromise on is not the schedule and not the quality, but I will compromise on the scope." - @JamesClear pic.twitter.com/c48sD6N6ra

"Being underestimated is a gift. You don’t have to find motivation." –@JamesClear I concur with the description of James' weekly email ... “The most wisdom per word of any newsletter on the web.”

@JamesClear James, I'm impressed by your ability to take simple words and spin profound new phrases that are dense with value. I would ask how you do it. But I'm guessing you'd say thoughtful action: steadily carving down ideas to their core components. Your tweet is Picasso's last bull: pic.twitter.com/qs1J4TAaP8

To master the creative process, give yourself permission to create junk. This is one of the many things I learned diving into everything @jamesclear has published on creativity and building a writing habit. Here's a thread of his best articles, tweets, and podcast appearances:

IMO, one of the most simple yet powerful books of our times is ATOMIC HABITS by @JamesClear “You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.” amzn.to/3g9WkHc

Speaking of Jay, his podcast Creative Elements is definitely the rare joint Rookie of the Year / MVP podcast. The episode where he picks @JamesClear’s brain about his writing process is 🤩 for aspiring writers. jayclouse.com/podcast/james-…

"Too often, we fall into an all-or-nothing cycle with our habits. The problem is not slipping up; the problem is thinking that if you can’t do something perfectly, then you shouldn’t do it at all." –@JamesClear

All the best things are usually free, just like @JamesClear's 3-2-1 newsletter. Just caught up with the last 3 editions, and this quote is so on point "You can either be judged because you created something or ignored because you left your greatness inside of you. Your call."

5 books worth revisiting • Siddhartha • On the road • Essentialism • Atomic habits • 4 hour workweek

.@JamesClear's Atomic Habits is pretty much the only "self-help" book that's worked for me so far.

"The bad days are more important than the good days. If you write or exercise or meditate or cook when you don't feel like it, then you maintain the habit. And if you maintain the habit, then all you need is time." –@JamesClear

Finally read Atomic Habits after @JamesClear sent it to me a year ago. Fantastic book - yes it’s about habits but serves as a great reminder that the process is what leads to results, and every part of the process has room for at least 1% improvement. pic.twitter.com/xCXnoOCEAJ

19. This book deserves to be read and re-read and re-read. It stresses upon the most undeniably powerful way to live life. "Do not set goals. Set habits" @JamesClear has written the most simplistic stunner, ever! amzn.to/3mjs8A8

Out of endless highlights, folded pages, and notes in the 264 pages of Atomic Habits by @JamesClear -- the one line that stuck out like no other was: “Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.” So simple. So powerful.

Atomic Habits taught me to think of daily routines as systems we can intentionally design. I love our After School Jobs time each day. @JamesClear pic.twitter.com/AGwO8oPuIv

A dynamite interview with @JamesClear about the importance of habits and rituals. The man dishes out life-changing insights like they're t-shirts on a college campus morningbrew.com/daily/stories/…

My interview with @JamesClear waaaay back in the beginning of the podcast is still a listener AND personal favorite. Such a smart, generous guy. twitter.com/boxwala_yunus/…

@JamesClear has had huge impact on me. I’ve lost 70 pounds since reading his book. He is a whole bowl of awesomeness… anchor.fm/rockne-cole/ep…

Atomic Habits will hold up for decades. Why? It follows its own core principles. @JamesClear made the book: - easy to understand - satisfying to complete - obvious to see its value - attractive in terms of design

As a general rule: Broad ideas influence more people. Specific ideas influence people more.
