Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones by James Clear
We all have habits that shape our daily lives. When we get comfortable and go on “auto-pilot,” we naturally fall into the systems of habits that are deeply instilled in us. In Atomic Habits, James Clear, renowned expert on all things habits, helps readers to acknowledge these systems we so easily fall into and to create intentional habits to lead us toward the life we want to live.
If you often find yourself just “going through the motions” in life or stuck in old patterns, Clear’s book can help you rediscover your intentions for your life and create a strategy to live into those intentions. Clear offers real-life stories and examples of how to do this work, so we know we are not doing it alone. Clear’s method includes dumping old, worn-out habits and creating new ones so that we can improve by 1% each day.
