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.

A book that almost everyone should read at least once, but wouldn‘t hurt to read several. It has numerous strategies to build better habits and break bad ones. I hope to make the best out of them.

Straightforward advice on how to develop good habits and break bad ones. This complements other books I have read- including just about anything by Brene Brown and Unwinding Anxiety. I‘m not sure it adds anything to the topic, u less of course you just starting to think about this- then it‘s a very good introduction.

"The same way that money multiplies through compound interest, the effects of your habits multiply as you repeat them. They seem to make little difference on any given day and yet the impact they deliver over the months and years can be enormous. It is only when looking back two, five, or perhaps ten years later that the value of good habits and the cost of bad ones becomes strikingly apparent."

I loved it!!! This book is perfect for anyone looking to make lasting improvements in their life. The author's approach to breaking down habits into small steps is practical and motivating. It's not just about stopping bad habits or starting good ones.
If you don't have the time to read this book, just listen to the summary, it will help you narrow down the basics in under 3 minutes.

Why did this sit so long on my shelf? I do not know. This is a book that needs to be on the "Read Every Year" list. More than worth the time to read.

Desha I agree. Great idea. I read it last year and loved it. Maybe it should be a once a year read for me too! 😄📚 7mo

Read for the 201 Leadership Foundation class I lead for work, this is an excellent book not only business, but for life. It provides info on how habits are formed & layers in useful framework, tools & tips for building good habits & eliminating the bad ones. It‘s no wonder it is perennially on the Amazon best seller lists. My group finishes it next week but so far the consensus is that they all found value in it for whatever they were working on.

Absolutely loved it. So many great tidbits on how to start/maintain great life long habits and how to stop those bad habits that are keeping you from your goals and potential.

TiredLibrarian Loved this too. I've actually been able to use the advice and keep up a few habits from the beginning of the year, which is very unlike me. 😊 9mo

I'd read it last year, now decided to re-read it. My opinion remains the same: It's a good book, worth your time.

Furthermore, instead of rushing towards the habit making section, spend some time fully grasping the first 3 chapters. They contain key insights (which I'd missed the first time I read it).

The Millennials I know are really into this book, so I finally picked it up. I read the first third carefully then skimmed the rest. I like the number of citations and stories Clear uses, and although the information isn't new if you've read books or listened to podcasts about habits, he organizes it in an accessible and logical way. So, if this is your first habits book, I recommend it. But if you're not a novice, you can probably skip it.

5feet.of.fury I like this one, I enjoy that the advice can be applied to multiple aspects of life. 10mo

This book is absolutely excellent at demonstrating how we should be thinking about all those little things we do day to day and how they affect outcome. Advice is simple, sensible, and the book is full of rationale and encouragement.

Having said that, I reckon I'm beyond redemption... it's like the better I do in life, the more complete the self-sabotage that follows 😵

Hopefully my brain took in some of these lessons by osmosis.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Caroline2 But I know what you mean, I‘m still struggling to enforce good habits. 🙄 11mo
RaeLovesToRead @Caroline2 I didn't eat cake for 2.5 months. Think I may have eaten 3 months worth of cake in 3 weeks 😋 Maybe I just don't WANT to succeed. Let the debauchery continue!!!!!!!! 11mo

Atomic habits is a book about how to build and sustain healthy habits while cutting out the bad ones. The book is not super long, maybe 4-5 hours but the writing is simple and easy to understand, keeping the key points concise. The simplicity of each rule makes them easy to implement and continue with.

I listened to this book, and I gotta tell you the waitlist for this book for the new year was really long. The audiobook is great, short, and informative in an a small steps approach. And there‘s a website where I can go for printouts on how to get started in adding new habits to my routine. Of course, now the big dilemma is me actually following through.😂😂😂

Iamvinsto Believe me,taking a stand against that dilemma might be a arduous one but the results are worth ! 12mo

Day 27 of the Dessert Detox. No pudding. No chocolate. No cake. No sweets. No dessert.

Only fruit juice, smoothies, diet shakes allowed.

Currently in the "Valley of Disappointment". Habit established. No results yet...

And now it's NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CAKE DAY ???? Stay strong, Rae.

JamieArc I read this at the beginning of the year. I‘ve been weight training for 6 weeks with NO weight loss results (but I am building muscle!), so I‘ve been using the concept in this book to make it a part of my identity, so when I‘m not motivated to go, I tell myself “I am a weight lifter!” Somehow it works. I don‘t think I could do that with sweets though 😂 13mo
RaeLovesToRead @JamieArc Nice work! Some of the benefits are not easy to measure! Like feeling stronger! For me, it's not about depriving myself of cake, but getting back in control. The identity is "I am in control of my eating" and "I have cake as a treat, not a compulsion!" Hopefully after Feb, I can have a "phased return to cake" without becoming the Cookie Monster again ??? 13mo
IuliaC I finished this one last week and I still cannot identify myself with a person who doesn't eat many sweets 😄 maybe a moderate consumer of sweets 13mo

RaeLovesToRead @IuliaC The Jan/Feb detox is to break the cycle. I want to identify as a person who can control themself around cake and who enjoys it rather than snarfing it like Garfield snarfs Lasagne 😄 Cake will always be a big part of my life, but things got out of hand over the Xmas period...... 13mo
Branwen I'm SO proud of you! You're doing great so far! 💕 13mo
RaeLovesToRead @Branwen Thank you!!! 😊💕 I may be digesting a huge Chinese takeaway right now BUT I went for a long walk (with music) and was the only person at lunch not to have dessert. There was a sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce on EITHER SIDE OF ME!!!!! 😱😱😱😱😱 Just making little changes every day with my kitty life coach 😊😺 13mo

I think it was good to have this one among the reads I've started the year with. We all know tiny steps and small efforts lead to success and this book shows the way to use this mantra to build good habits and abandon bad habits. The connection between habits and identity was also a very interesting piece of information.

Perfect read/listen for the start of 2023!

I closed out 2022 with “The Power of Habit”, so this was a great way to turn that information into some practical steps for making sustainable change in my habits and routines going into 2023! 10/10 recommend!
Also, getting ready to graduate and am raring to get back into my reading groove! Trying to decide which challenges I want to join in on in this new year and I feel like a kid in a candy store!

I don‘t normally read books like this but I read this because my husband was. I really enjoyed it. It made sense of both my failures and successes and left me feeling hopeful. The idea of making incremental changes and identifying as the person I want to be makes sense to me.

Rule Number 1: Never travel anywhere without an emergency supply of books.

And a Kindle. Just in case.

🤗😁

julesG How many hours are you away from your shelves? 1y
RaeLovesToRead @julesG 2 hours by car... but not far from my nearest bookshop 😏😁 1y

Any thoughts to share on this book?

5feet.of.fury I read this one a few years ago and then did a reread at the beginning of the year. There‘s always a few things I come back to in this one that can be tied to any goal (as opposed to many similar in the genre that focus towards work or education). 1y
