As the author of more than 70 books, Steve "S.J." Scott is one of the most productive and disciplined people I know.

His latest title, Habit Stacking, became a Wall Street Journal Bestseller and served as the inspiration for this episode.

(Long-time listeners might remember Steve from WAY back in the archives; he was my guest in episode 9 where we discussed how to earn money as a side hustling author.)

This time though we're diving into a few of the habits that allow Steve to continually drive his business forward, and lead a healthier and happier life. Plus, you'll learn why we think they're important and how you can apply them in your own life.

The 10 habits we cover are:

  1. Tracking your time
  2. Reviewing your goals daily
  3. Writing down the tasks you got done
  4. Fixing your "broken windows"
  5. Wearing a step-tracking device
  6. Keeping a food diary
  7. Researching one side hustle
  8. Breaking down a big project into actionable steps
  9. Following an evening shutdown routine
  10. Practicing mindfulness

As you can see, they're not all directly business-related, but most take 5 minutes or less and are designed to increase your productivity, reduce stress, prioritize your workload, and help you find a healthy work-life balance.

Tune in to hear how Steve and I incorporate these habits into our daily routines (or plan to, in my case). As you'll see in the links section below, there are a lot of books, apps, and resources mentioned.
