Atomic Habits: An influential self-help book - James Clear

Yashita Chhugani   January 10, 2022

The book “Atomic Habits” has earned itself the title of-
The #1 New York Times best-sellers.

The word "atomic", here implies small and
easy; similar to an atom. Here, habits are like
the atoms of our lives.
The author compares and contrasts atoms
with small and easy routines or practices, that
form an incredibly powerful component of the
system of our compound growth and overall
behavior; every single one of us out here, tends
to underestimate the value and power of
implementing/making the “small changes” and
the “small improvements”, all because we’ve
convinced ourselves that big decisions require
big changes.

No matter what your personal or work goals are, Atomic Habits offers a
proven framework for self-improvement–every day.

James Clear, one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, talks about
practical strategies that teach the reader, exactly how to form good habits and
break the bad ones as well as master the tiny (atom-like) behaviors that lead
to remarkable results and overall growth.

All our habits follow a 4-Step Habit Loop which includes: cue, craving,
response and reward; practical techniques to "hack and master” each step is
explained in the book, so we can achieve lasting personal change.
Focusing on the overall system, rather than a single goal, is one of the core
themes of Atomic Habits.

You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your system.

BOOK REVIEW
Atomic Habits is a great book, especially, catering to the audience looking for
prescriptive content on self-development, which lays out quite a few do’s and
dont’s for bringing a much-needed productive and positive change in life,
creating new habits and breaking the old ones. It is a book full of straightforward techniques, directly actionable advice and lessons.

A few of the most important and useful points I am going to be taking away
from this book are: Focusing less on the goals and more on the gradual
process and system, identifying myself is the first key step to bringing a
change in myself, making short-term goals more rewarding to achieve longterm goals and finally- Success is not a goal to reach or a finish line to cross. It
is a system to improve, an endless process to refine.

This book is definitely a must-read, i give it a solid 9 on 10!
