Progress Brings You Happiness – Alex Harris

“The more you start to realize how you can get outside of your comfort zone and be comfortable being uncomfortable the more you learn about yourself.” ~ Alex Harris

Most of us have dealt with Imposter Syndrome in one way or another, and our guest today has as well. The difference? He has found joy in the simple, intentional improvements of his life.

In this episode we talk about how he uses art and science analytics to increase the user experience of websites and apps, but that this approach has also proven valuable to his own pursuit of continual improvement. Right out of college and into his career, he realized he didn’t really know how to “show up” at work functions, in meetings, etc. And by tackling some of his fears heads on, like public speaking, he found joy is just trying to continually get just a little bit better.

Alex Harris is a conversion-focused web designer, online marketing expert, and best-selling author.
