About James Clear

Hi there. I’m James Clear and this website is the home of my life’s work. Let’s talk about how this site can be useful for you (and you’ll learn a bit more about me along the way).

I write about behavioral psychology, habit formation, and performance improvement. That is, I write about how small habits can change our lives, and society, for the better.

The central question I’m trying to answer through my work is, “How can we live better?”

In order to answer that question, I uncover the latest scientific research and explain it in a way that you can easily understand and actually use. As I share these science-based ideas for living a better life, I like 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.

But I don’t merely write about things. Along the way, I like to try out the concepts for myself as I experiment with building better habits as an entrepreneur, writer, and weightlifter. In the end, my work ends up being one-part storytelling, one-part academic research, one-part personal experiment. It’s a colorful blend of inspirational stories, academic science, hard-earned wisdom.

The primary place that I share this information is through my weekly newsletter. Over 200,000 people receive my articles via email each week. You can sign up below. You’ll only get information on how to master your habits and live a better life. Nothing annoying or unexpected.
