Our interview with Stephen Guise, author of ‘Mini Habits’ and ‘How to Be an Imperfectionist’.
Following on from our last episode, where we shared the best bits from the book ‘Mini Habits’, we spoke with author Stephen Guise. Stephen told us about the day of the ‘Golden Pushup’, the day in December 2012 when he accidentally discovered the power of ‘mini habits’. He’d decided that he wanted to work out more, so he wanted to do a 30-minute session, but it was just too daunting and he couldn’t work up the willpower or motivation to start. So instead, he decided to start with something so easy he couldn’t NOT do it: one pushup.
In this conversation, we discuss the power of Mini Habits, and we get into Stephen’s more recent book ‘How to Be an Imperfectionist’. He also explains the brain joke from his book (but we still don’t get it…)
