Love love love this book. It brought to life things I already knew but made me reflect on how much impact I can make with tiny little changes to my routine. Check it out.
by James Clear
James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, learned the importance of habit building after a traumatic injury in his youth.
He learned that if you focus on improving yourself by developing good habits, you'll be able to achieve your goals.
YOU CAN DEVELOP POSITIVE HABITS THROUGH SMALL INCREMENTAL CHANGES
Small changes, though they may seem unimportant now, can add up. Eventually, they can lead to drastic results.
These small changes are what Clear calls atomic habits. An atomic habit “refers to a tiny change, a marginal gain, a 1% improvement.”
If you improve by 1 percent each day for a year, you’ll be thirty-seven times better by the end of the year.
The reverse is also true — if you get 1 percent worse each day for a year, you’ll end up basically at zero.
The way we build habits can be divided into four steps: cue, craving, response, and reward. Together, these steps are known as the habit loop.
