Uncomfortable is OK Podcast


Making it easier for you to get out of your comfort zone.

Chris Desmond explores the science, the stories, and the strategies of getting out of your comfort zone and finding your magic.

Oct 15, 2018

James Clear is the author of the new book “Atomic Habits”.  He has been my go to habit guy for the past 4-5 years, helping me to improve my habits and myself without even knowing that I exist. I’m someone who likes to know why something happens, and then what to do about it. The reason I follow James is that he helps me with both. He explains why simply and then gives me practical tips to apply straight away.

James is fascinated with habits and human potential. The central question he is trying to answer through his work is, “How can we live better?”

In order to answer that question, he uncovers the latest scientific research and explains it in a way that you can easily understand and actually use. As he shares these science-based ideas for living a better life, he likes to showcase the habits and rituals of athletes, artists, and entrepreneurs. By analyzing the stories of top performers from many different fields and understanding proven scientific principles, we can start to tease out the common characteristics that make these people the best at what they do.

His specific focus is on self-improvement tips based on proven scientific research.
