Most selfhelp books give you sensation of "wow that was a great read" but then leave you with no direct actionable steps to implement what they have taught. This book is the complete opposite. It is a complete breakdown of what to do and how. The only way it could be any better is if James would upload a youtube series of him actually breaking down his habits in real time.
Atomic Habits takes selfhelp to a new level, through a rigorous scientific study of how to compound the benefits of good habits. Tiny ‘atomic’ improvements in your lifestyle may seem to make little difference. Clear demonstrates that the results of such changes are exponential rather than linear. Every step on the path of improvement multiplies with every other step, as long as we maintain consistent effort and keep a clear eye on our process. Like compound interest in finance, the yield curve of compounding our interests repays constant focus. A brilliant book, with excellent case studies and grounding in the psychology of human behaviour.
Great Book! I am on my second read! Of all the ‘selfhelp’ books I have read this would have to be the most relevant, practical and easy to implement advice on how to change your life in every area. It helps you to understand yourself and all the ways your habits effect daily life and ultimately who you are. It has been the easiest way I have found to make the smallest of changes in order to change my life. Wonderful!
