James Clear

James Clear is a writer and speaker focused on habits, decision-making, and continuous improvement. He is the author of the current New York Times best seller, Atomic Habits. His work has appeared in Entrepreneur Magazine, Time Magazine, the New York Times, and on CBS This Morning. He is a regular speaker at Fortune 500 companies and his work is used by teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB.

Why Attend

In what area of your life do you feel stuck? Relationships, Health, Technology use, Career Growth, Productivity, Communication, Sleep, Fitness?

We are all stuck somewhere because we’re all creatures of habit. Habits keep us doing the same thing, without even thinking about it. Some habits are effective, and others are ineffective. The ineffective ones keep us stuck. They diminish our presence, our productivity, our effectiveness, and our happiness. And this leaves us feeling disempowered and lacking control.

We want to help you get unstuck so you can experience:

  • Increased power over your choices and behaviors.
  • Reduced anxiety and improved well-being.
  • Enriched relationships in any area of your life.

Who Are We?

We are You. We are badasses disguised as regular people (just like you!) who are figuring out how to hack our habits and live the life we know we are meant to. And we’ve invited some really cool people who just happen to be geniuses in the domain of habit-hacking to help guide the way.

What To Expect…

Drop your expectations. Are you willing to show up open to experiencing something beyond listening to a few experts talk? Habit Hackers was thoughtfully designed as a summit of thought leaders + workshop to teach you habit mechanics, uncover blind spots that are limiting you, and send you off with an action plan (and the support) to make anything you want happen.

This is not a business conference per se – although a lot of the principals and systems you’ll learn can be applied to running any venture or endeavor successfully.  This is much more personal, and geared toward learning life skills through habit training that can be applied to any area of your life.

We are capping the summit’s attendance at 300 attendees to ensure an intimate and connective experience among one another and the speakers.

Imagine knowing the habits to bring your mind, body and heart into all of your communications.  This talk will help you take your speaking to the next level, learn how to work with any fear and your physiology, end performance anxiety, learn how to connect with any audience, and establish your leadership presence by shaping conversations to influence and inspire.

Speaker: Kendall Colman; Speaker Coach and Author of Mind, Body & Heart Communication


State Change Exercise

First in a series of two connection and activation exercises throughout the day to relax, re-center and connect. Think of these as energy palette cleansers for the mind and body. These exercises are of a theme, and will build upon each other as the day progresses.

This first exercise will contain a short overview on the neuroscience of state change and some fun exercises.

Led by: Michelle Lee Weldon


The Simple Daily Habits of a World Champion

In order to become world class at anything, you must dedicate many hours to practicing your craft. Beatboxing takes it to an even more intense level because our instrument is our own body. Lack of sleep, poor eating habits, and poor mental attitude will completely affect how your instrument sounds. The art form itself is very fun and liberating. It encourages you to find the power of your voice and break through mental barriers. Lightship has redesigned our habit training to be just as fun and liberating as out artform and we can’t wait to share our insights with the community coming to Habit Hackers this February!

Speakers: Lightship – Kaila Mullady and Mark Martin

Utilizing his frameworks from his book Atomic Habits, and his Habits Academy Training Platform, James Clear will facilitate an interactive workshop where attendees will re-tune their own habits, and create an implementation plan for the ones they’re going to make & break in 2019.
