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.

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.

Don’t bother

The premise and title of the book, along with the first chapter are promising. Essentially, too many businesses are organized and playing for the next quarter rather than a long season. He blames Friedman for changing the dynamic of business to serving the stockholder over the consumer, which drives short-term, eventually destructive behavior. There’s a lot of truth to that, and the reasoning, argument and story is logical and entertaining.

After that, the book swerves into more of a political diatribe against modern capitalism and male culture. Think of that Bernie Bro in HR you can’t take for more than 5 minutes... if Howard Zinn made a revisionist business book instead of “The People’s History”, this would be it.

Save yourself the trouble and the pain of the rest of the book.

The valuable part: Play the long game, be in tune with your actual consumer and don’t make your COO your CEO. (A lesson no one ever seems to learn). The rest of this book could take a clue from the first chapter.

Bad preview

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?
