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.

This book was one of the first I read last year (audiobooked), and I decided to re-read this year for a tune up (physical copy) chapter a day to let it marinate. And this quote made me think of Litsy. ❤️📚 🤓

A bit of a disappointment because this barely scratched any surfaces. I expected more but if you‘ve read The Power of Habit or anything similar, sign yourself up for the 30-day email workshop and just read the workbook and the emails.

“At some point it comes down to who can handle the boredom of training everyday.”
I thought that it would be a good idea and good start to read this book in the beginning of 2022. This book indeed offers some useful tips to form a good habit and would definitely benefit readers having such need. That said, I would not say that I enjoy reading this book which, I think, is not really a negative comment on this kind of book. 😅😂

I really enjoyed reading this book because the things tackled are the answers I‘ve been looking for. I also wanted to read it at the start of the year so that I can do better in my academic career this year. It hasn‘t been easy balancing school and work (and life). Helpful lessons that are practical. A must read for anyone who wants to make some improvements in their lifestyle. 4/5

My first finish of 2022 was Atomic Habits. I found this book very interesting. I read a chapter or two a day so I didn't rush through everything. I will be thinking of this book all year and hoping to develop good habits as a result.

DogMomIrene I really liked this book too. I was practicing many of the techniques prior to our move. A few didn‘t work well during the transition, like habit trackers. Now that we‘re more settled, I‘m being more cognizant of habits I‘m forming in this new environment and I think about this book a lot. 2w
bookishnerd @DogMomIrene I plan to explore the website today. I decided to do my own thing while reading it to see what I take from it. Now I am curious about what he offers as additional help. 2w

1. One of my goals is to get back to using Litsy! That is why I keep doing these posts. Trying to get back into the habit! Otherwise, I have just been trying to foster good habits.

2. Optimistic.

3. Atomic Habits. I actually started it in 2021, but I have been limiting myself to 1 or 2 chapters a day so I can process things!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️definitely one of the better self help books. Clear and concise. I love how he approaches change in increment fashion so as not to be overwhelmed. Exercise 2 minutes a day to begin the habit. Lots of nuggets and worksheets for help.

I recently participated in a behavior modification class. The ideas put forth by Mr Clear sound like they would fit neatly into the same framework of change.

I loved this book. James explains how by just starting off implementing the tiniest of changes in our daily habits and lives we can make huge changes. This book shows just how small and seemingly insignificant a change in a habit needs to be and how just doing it consistently will lead to bigger and better changes. A very relatable and do able self help book.

Help! It's just me and Pickles this weekend... I've been left to fend for myself and finally have the house to myself for a weekend. Do I...?

A) Spend the weekend trying to get the house looking neat and tidy for my parents' return?

B) Invite all my friends and neighbours over for an impromptu disco rave?

C) Spend the weekend in deep meditation now that I finally have some peace and quiet?

D) Make some headway with these bad boys (pictured)?

Soubhiville Do what‘s going to make you feel best, but I‘d clean some each morning, then dive into those books for the rest of the days. 2mo

I've been told I need to read these two self help books, but which to start first?

The book that'll stop me from eating cake for breakfast or the book that'll stop me beating myself up for eating cake for breakfast?

Or maybe I'll just go back to bed 😴

rabbitprincess I vote for the one that helps you not beat yourself up for eating cake for breakfast, because there is nothing wrong with that 😉 3mo

There‘s some nuggets of wisdom here! If it‘s been hard to action on any type of lifestyle change, this should help with respect to process and how to effect change on one‘s life … there are slow parts but the good part is they are over quickly and before we know it, we‘re reading about the next thing…

Your results have very little to do with the goals you set and nearly everything to do with the systems(habits) you follow. This book is very insightful on a very basic level. I‘m reading a chapter a day as I try to incorporate some better habits.

I read this book because some people in my network kept raving about it, but, personally, I can‘t say I learned very much from it. I majored in Psychology, so I already knew most of these tricks and had heard of most of the studies he cites. That said, if you haven‘t taken any Psych classes and you want to know how to trick yourself into practicing better habits, this book will help you out.

In one way or another, this book, I believe should be read by anyone wanting to get more discipline in life. It's a matter of showing up everyday to one day build a good habit.

This is a great book. I am already pretty good at creating a habit, but had no idea I was implementing some of these tactics. There are some tips I didn‘t know about that could help with habits I want to do, but have a hard time making them stick. I now know why and will try some additional strategies. I would recommend this book.

BookDadGirlDad I've seen this book listed many places. Now it is sitting on my TBR shelf 6mo
SarahBookInterrupted @BookDadGirlDad I just noticed your comment just now. Sorry about that. You should read this book! It has so many good tools for building the life you desire. I don‘t think you‘d regret it. Very practical and enjoyable read. He tells lots of stories. 6mo

All big things come from small beginnings. The seed of every habit is a single, tiny decision. But as that habit is repeated, a habit sprouts and grows stronger.

Tired of fiction, I felt it was time to move over to non-fiction for a moment and seek motivation. Enter: Atomic Habits by James Clear. Clear‘s approach isn‘t revolutionary, but he does a good job keeping my interest, reminding the reader that habits should start small. His mantra is make it obvious, make it attractive, make it easy, and make it satisfying. The best habits are ones we make part of our identity, and are not just goals to complete.

The task of breaking a bad habit is like uprooting a powerful oak within us. And the task of building a good habit is like cultivating a delicate flower one day at a time.

"Boredom"
When we start any habit initially we fill energetic and motivated but with passage of time at some point we face boredom. This is due to repeating same activity each and everyday.

This is here the difference arise between best and worst. The best didn't give up even having boredom.

What a good read! I‘m not one to enjoy self help anything. I find it tacky honestly. But let me tell you, this book changed my mind, and my life! The way the author is able to present each idea on a big and obvious scale but also on a smaller scale that‘s so much more applicable to real life is amazing

The most general and important question - "How to stick with good habits every day"

Simple answer is by - " HABIT TRACKING "
This has helped Benjamin Franklin and even comedian Jerry Seinfeld.

Benefits of habit tracking are -
1. it create visual cue that remind you to act.
2. it motivates as you see progress
3. it feel satisfying

We all want immediate results. But this book elobrately discussed that the more immediate pleasure you get from an action, there is probability that end consequence is disastrous.

So, we should focus on long term pleasure rather then immediate one.

Years before, I read “the Power of Habit”. This book feels like an expansion of the same theory with a practical touch, providing actionable yet simple strategy towards any habit you want to form, sustain or get rid of. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to not only understand how habits work but also start do something to better your life and self.
