First Law: Make the cues obvious

First Law: Make the cues obvious

Habits are initiated by cues, and a visual cue is the most obvious of all. Habits are, hence, linked to the environment.

Keep your running shoes in front of you. Keep your books on the table.

Try combining habits

Try a sequence of habits - After I brush my teeth, I'll drink a glass of warm water. Daily. Or, after I send a mail that I'm supposed to send daily, I'll go for a brief walk. Combining habits with tasks you are bound to do, will also ensure the completion of the habit.

Self control is a short term strategy. We must, rather, change the temptation associated with the habit.

Second Law: Make it Attractive

Second Law: Make it Attractive

We need to make our habits irresistible since it is the expectation of the rewarding experience that makes us act. In addition to the dopamine hit, if a behaviour can get us approval, respect or praise, we tend to repeat it.

Set small rewards for yourself, for eg. playing a mobile game after studying for an hour.

Third Law: Make it Easy

Third Law: Make it Easy

Humans follow the law of least effort. Start small, with an easy task, with repetition, and not perfection.

10 minutes of reading daily is better than an hour of reading once a week. And make sure to keep the book visibly in front of you.

Fourth Law: Make it Satisfying

Fourth Law: Make it Satisfying

What is immediately rewarded is repeated. What is immediately punished is avoided. While incentives can start a habit, identity sustains it.

Instead of affirming that I need to exercise daily to be healthy, one must affirm that they are healthy, and hence, they exercise daily.

  1. Five minute rule: If something takes five minutes or less, do it right away, instead of scheduling it for later.
  2. Don't break the chain: Mark a cross for each day you complete a habit. As you make progress, you'll see a chain of such crosses forming. Your goal should be to not break the chain.
  3. Never skip a habit twice: It might still be possible that due to externalities, you might miss doing something one day. Just don't skip it twice.

Waiting for motivation before action is futile. Action creates motivation.

Just 1% better, every day

Just 1% better, every day

Being 1% better each day would help you become 37x better in a year. It's these small habits, and doing them consistently over time, that make huge changes.  As Einstein claimed, compounding is indeed the eighth wonder of the world!

Interested about economics, productivity and keeping a growth mindset


It's 1st January 2023, and my friends made their ambitious new year resolutions. However, research shows that almost 80% people abandon their resolutions by February. It's not these huge, ambitious goals, but the compounding of small systems that work towards changing you. Atomic Habits is one of the most lucid and practical books that helps you create systems to transform yourself.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
