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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
James Clear’s Atomic Habits gets straight to the point: If we can change our daily routines, we can change our lives. His argument is that the human mind is hardwired to form habits, so small changes are easier to maintain—and build on—than big ones. With his calm, sincere reading, Clear encourages listeners to stop thinking about major life goals (like losing 50 pounds) in favor of tweaking not-so-good habits (changing your commute route to avoid a favorite doughnut shop). Crucially, Clear also offers concrete steps to take when we slip back into old patterns.
Comparable to a skipping disk
I was looking forward to this audio book but it skips words constantly. It sounds like I’m listening to a CD that is covered in scratches! I love for this to be fixed so I can listen to this book and give it a better review.
I love this book. The author breaks things down in a way that I’ve never considered before. And while his delivery may not be dramatic, the book is nonfiction, so I wasn’t expecting a flowery performance. The ultimate message of the book is a practical and inspirational one - anyone can begin any good habit, or break any old one, with the right approach. I’m starting a new habit tomorrow, with the help of my two accountability partners. Wish me luck.
I can only say they sure didn’t do this author any favors with the sample. The narrative took up ten min and abruptly ended, though I can summarize it far better in under fifteen seconds; “Man recalls the nightmare his family endured when he was struck with a baseball bat in the head. His sister was fortunate to survive early childhood Leukemia and now again as a boy his mom and dad were in the hospital wondering if their son would die or be an invalid the rest of his life. The boy was on a ventilator and induced coma state.” Ok so narrative ends there. Since he is narrating about his own life there is no tension as we already know he survived fine because this is his autobiography.... I think... really we as the reader have no idea what the book is about and there is nothing to encourage more listening . Book may be fabulous but how can we tell?
