Motivational quote for #bookfitnesschallenge
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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This has been a terrible week as far as fitness. I‘ve only worked out once. But, I‘m ready to jump back into it for week 4. #bookfitnesschallenge
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. 😂
I have been a fan of James Clear and his blog for many years. This book is a great book on ideas to start and stop habits.
I‘m crushing on this book hard! 🥰
This could be helpful to remind a person about the importance of focusing on process over product.
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.”
Trying to make new habits and actually stick to them
Great January read, about the power of habits and how to make small changes that will ultimately help you reach your goals. #newyearresolutions
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.
I just can‘t hear anything but “blah blah blah” from certain demographics anymore.
