Welcome to Episode 164 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast we talk with author, podcaster and health coach Sid Garza-Hillman who has a fascinating “Small Steps Approach” to long-term habit change. Sid has used this approach successfully with people in all areas, including leadership, productivity and health and wellness. In addition to exploring Sid’s “small steps” philosophy, we hear about his latest book, which he describes as “a philosophy of happiness book.” Six Truths: Live by these Truths and be Happy. Don’t and You Won’t is a straightforward discussion of what it takes to be happy — on the job, at home and in your community. Sid explains how living by these truths can help managers be more effective leaders, help employees have a better mindset as they re-enter the workplace, and even help you eat a better diet without depriving yourself.

So if you want to know:

  • Why people need to be equipped to build the right habits
  • The important point you won’t read about in most management books
  • How to “steal moments” to manage stress and think more clearly
  • How to prevent social media from leading to social isolation
  • About getting out from under the “should cloud”
