Atomic Habits
Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones | James Clear
Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving--every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results. If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights. Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, readers will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field. Learn how to: * make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy); * overcome a lack of motivation and willpower; * design your environment to make success easier; * get back on track when you fall off course; ...and much more. Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success, and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits--whether you are a team looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or achieve any other goal.

Great advice I need to utilize more. The author of tagged book is quoted in the article.

zezeki Great article. I've came across before on articles that talk on benefits of writing down your thoughts. 5d
Eggs Great article! Writing IS a huge part of analytic competence and memory sharpening! 5d
TheAromaofBooks The reason I originally started book blogging back several years ago was because I am a very fast reader, but was finding myself retaining less and less. Taking short notes when I initially finish a book, and then going back later and actually writing a review (even if it is just a few paragraphs) has really helped me get more out of my reading. 5d

A decent book for someone who is new to the idea of habit building and does not come from a background of psychology or management. Otherwise most ideas are common sensical in nature and author is delibrate in keeping it that way.

This was the best nonfiction book I read in 2019 and I re-read it this year to kick off 2020. I‘m hoping it will help me break bad habits the same way it helped me build good ones!

My first read of the year was Atomic Habits. I‘ve read things on this subject before, but Clear does a much better job of going into the science behind what he‘s saying and of breaking things down so you see, not how they apply universally, but how they could apply to someone in your specific situation or with your personality.

"You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results" #AtomicHabits is becoming my traditional January reread. I highly recommend it if you are looking for some motivation going into the new year. Remember where you are now is a stepping stone to where you may end up. Don't compare yourselves to others as everyone is on their own journey. Happy New Year!

A nice primer on how to set better goals and remove friction to make progress more attainable. If you want to exercise more, you need to make a plan for success. I usually hate these types of self-help books, but this one was clear, straightforward and useful. A great read if you plan on starting a new habit in 2020.

Picked this up in anticipation of New Year‘s resolution season - I‘m hoping to set myself some better goals for 2020, things that are more actionable and that I‘ll stick to. There were a lot of good nuggets of wisdom in this book even though the writing style was pretty repetitive. I think his final section about mastery wasn‘t needed here and maybe should have been the seed for a separate book instead, but the relevant tips seem useful!

Megabooks @8little_paws From what I learned about pregnancy in general in vet school and what my friends have gone through, I believe it! I‘ve heard it‘s massively uncomfortable body-wise, plus the physical demands of caring for a virtually full grown newborn inside your body!! 😳😳😳 2mo
Megabooks @8little_paws we did a c-section on a mid-size (about 50 lbs before pregnancy) that had 20 puppies. That was one of the craziest things in my career!! 2mo

This was a great book that breaks down how good habits are formed and bad habits are broken. You learn about triggers, rewards, facilitating, and habit layers. I think it also helps reinforce that you don't need LARGE life changing habits to become a better person. Small habits will build up, whether positive or negative.

This book has made an impact on me already, though I‘ve read my fair share of habit and productivity books, this had plenty that stood out. The idea of making very small, almost insignificant changes, but sticking with them regularly even to the point of boredom has left me with plenty to ponder. Also dropping the guilt around easiness. Ease is natural to us and even the most accomplished people make their habits super easy to achieve. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed reading this. It had easy to follow advice and didn‘t make me feel like Dr. Phil was talking to me which was a huge plus. There are summaries at the end of each chapter and links to printables to fill out for exercises which I found helpful. I plan on using the author‘s tools to help me create better habits for myself so we‘ll see if this works!

If I wasn't of a certain age & experience, I might be more impressed. If this is your first habits book and/or you're young/inexperienced, you may really enjoy it! I read this for one of my book discussion groups. I wouldn't recommend it, particularly; but, it was approachable/quick enough that I'm not salty about it taking up my time. I do have to say that I went for a walk both days I was reading it, so it was at least momentarily effective. 😂

Clear‘s approach doesn‘t seem different from kaizen, which the Japanese have been using for a while (decades probably). I‘ll withhold judgment but so far I‘m not impressed. 🤔 The quote above is about a bicycle team‘s attempt to improve over 5 years.

Finished this today as an audio book from #scribd. It is only 5 hours long but I find i pick up non-fiction less than a good fiction book. 📚

I do recommend this self-help book. James Clear gives solid specific advice on how to incorporate good habits and rid yourself of bad ones. It is a little reminiscent of Gretchen Rubins Better Than Before. I am going to have to buy the actual book so I can do some serious underlining. 📚

Hmm... let‘s see if this is any good.

“...if you can get 1% better each day for a year, you‘ll end up thirty-seven times better by the time you‘re done. Conversely, if you get 1% worse each day for one year, you‘ll decline nearly down to zero. What starts as a small win or a minor setback accumulates into something much more.”

Absolutely recommend this book to anyone struggling to maintain good habits. James clear breaks down the why and how we do what we do into clear and easily accessible language that is both engaging to read and highly applicable.

A nice summary of current science and thinking on habits. I read a lot in this area, so most of the tips were not new to me (stacking, tracking, accountability partners, etc.), but I did particularly like the way Clear describes successful habits as successful identity change. The first half of the book was stronger than the second half for me. It was a good way to get excited for the new year and to design the implementation of new habits.
