Jay Shetty sits down with Charles Duhigg to talk about forming habits, how to think more deeply, and our overall well-being. Habits are deeply ingrained in us, we do them unconsciously and automatically. This is why many people find it difficult to drop negative habits and form positive ones. It is difficult and would often require strong willpower and clear motivation. Yes, it’s difficult but never impossible.

Charles Duhigg, journalist, a New York times bestselling author. He wrote the Power of Habit and Smarter, Faster, Better, which talk about productivity habits, and the science behind it. He joined the New York Times as a staff writer in 2006and was part of the team that won the 2013Pulitzer prize in explanatory journalism for the iEconomy, a series that examines the global economy through the lens of Apple.
