Motion Hatch: Helping Motion Designers Do Better Business

Nov 6, 2018

Constructing good habits and sticking with them can be hard. With all the different parts of being a motion designer, let alone just being a functioning human, there’s so much to do all the time. Having good and productive habits is the key, and that’s what I want to talk with you about today.

This solo episode is inspired by a book I just read called Atomic Habits by James Clear. Essentially, it speaks to how making tiny changes in our lives can lead to amazing results. James writes about four ways to build a good habit and I’m going to discuss those with you on this episode. I’ve started to implement these habit building strategies into my life and I’m already seeing incredible results!

How do you build and maintain good habits? Let me know in the comment on the episode page!


In this episode:

  • How making small and incremental changes on a regular basis adds up to big changes over time
  • Making good habits obvious so that you can’t ignore or forget about them
  • How surrounding yourself with people who are doing similar things as you can support attractive habits
  • Constructing systems and environments that will make your good habits easy to do
  • Making your habits satisfying so they feel good when you complete them



“Habits appear to make no difference in the first days, weeks, or months. It takes a little time but then breakthroughs happen.” [5:03]

“If you’re surrounding yourself with people who are doing similar things then you’re more likely to do it.” [13:33]

“You can have a week or a day off whenever you’re doing your habit. But as soon as you start  missing it over and over again, you’re just going to lose momentum.” [22:24]
