Atomic Habits
Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones | James Clear
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.

Any thoughts to share on this book?

5feet.of.fury I read this one a few years ago and then did a reread at the beginning of the year. There‘s always a few things I come back to in this one that can be tied to any goal (as opposed to many similar in the genre that focus towards work or education). 3d
RaeLovesToRead I've been meaning to read this for so long! A friend told me it would really help me. 3d
RaeLovesToRead I've read the intro twice, but need to actually get it read! 😄 3d
Itchyfeetreader I hear so many non readers recommend this but I have not got to it yet 3d

Started today with a walk and a gym session. Then fell asleep 😴 I took this picture from a bench in the graveyard on the way up to the leisure centre. It was a beautiful day.

The self improvement journey half-heartedly continues!

tpixie Great job. I‘ve failed so far today. Got to do better this afternoon! 1mo
RaeLovesToRead @tpixie Thanks! 💕 I did have rather a long nap this afternoon though 🙈 I'm going to keep trying to make little changes... 1mo
tpixie @RaeLovesToRead yes little changes over time add up to big changes & are more sustainable 💙 1mo

I went back to reading a nonfiction Self-help book. Since I‘ve been implementing new habits into my life including trying to read everyday I thought this would be the perfect book for that. And it was. For me it was a very fast read. Nonfiction books usually are faster for me instead of fiction to read or listen to. I love how the author explains how habits compound over time and how little habits can turn into bigger habits over time.

I just started reading this. I am loving this so much. Success is often perceived as one big change or achievement. But James Clear defines success as a long series of small wins and tiny breakthroughs. I love his way of definition so much. It taught me to belive in and applause my every small steps—every single efforts. For those every tiny efforts will compound over time. Efforts always pay-off. Believe in your every efforts—they count.

Yesterday-Rae has conspired against me. She got Mum to hide my chocolate and signed me up to join the gym. THANKS A LOT, Yesterday-Rae 🤣🤣

Today-Rae is not impressed and wants to go for a nap / fall face-down into the nearest cake.

Maybe Today-Rae should take it out on Tomorrow-Rae... book her in for a spin class or something... that'll show her... 😂

Plan to read the tagged to try and get me into better habits! Let's do this 💅

This was a reread (I listened to the audio last year) I wanted to take time to digest it and try to put things into practice as I went. There is practical advice for people trying to get organized (after 2 years of pandemic I pretty much have no routine), how to fine tune habits to master skills. And there are great tips for manipulating your environment to make it conducive to you goals.

Very good!
Next daily reading is The Body Keeps Score!

5feet.of.fury @SRWCF I‘m excited to start it tomorrow! It‘s gotten such good reviews, and it‘s such interesting and necessary content 10mo

This book was one of the first I read last year (audiobooked), and I decided to re-read this year for a tune up (physical copy) chapter a day to let it marinate. And this quote made me think of Litsy. ❤️📚 🤓

A bit of a disappointment because this barely scratched any surfaces. I expected more but if you‘ve read The Power of Habit or anything similar, sign yourself up for the 30-day email workshop and just read the workbook and the emails.

“At some point it comes down to who can handle the boredom of training everyday.”
I thought that it would be a good idea and good start to read this book in the beginning of 2022. This book indeed offers some useful tips to form a good habit and would definitely benefit readers having such need. That said, I would not say that I enjoy reading this book which, I think, is not really a negative comment on this kind of book. 😅😂

I really enjoyed reading this book because the things tackled are the answers I‘ve been looking for. I also wanted to read it at the start of the year so that I can do better in my academic career this year. It hasn‘t been easy balancing school and work (and life). Helpful lessons that are practical. A must read for anyone who wants to make some improvements in their lifestyle. 4/5

My first finish of 2022 was Atomic Habits. I found this book very interesting. I read a chapter or two a day so I didn't rush through everything. I will be thinking of this book all year and hoping to develop good habits as a result.

DogMomIrene I really liked this book too. I was practicing many of the techniques prior to our move. A few didn‘t work well during the transition, like habit trackers. Now that we‘re more settled, I‘m being more cognizant of habits I‘m forming in this new environment and I think about this book a lot. 11mo
bookishnerd @DogMomIrene I plan to explore the website today. I decided to do my own thing while reading it to see what I take from it. Now I am curious about what he offers as additional help. 11mo

1. One of my goals is to get back to using Litsy! That is why I keep doing these posts. Trying to get back into the habit! Otherwise, I have just been trying to foster good habits.

2. Optimistic.

3. Atomic Habits. I actually started it in 2021, but I have been limiting myself to 1 or 2 chapters a day so I can process things!

I loved this book. James explains how by just starting off implementing the tiniest of changes in our daily habits and lives we can make huge changes. This book shows just how small and seemingly insignificant a change in a habit needs to be and how just doing it consistently will lead to bigger and better changes. A very relatable and do able self help book.

Help! It's just me and Pickles this weekend... I've been left to fend for myself and finally have the house to myself for a weekend. Do I...?

A) Spend the weekend trying to get the house looking neat and tidy for my parents' return?

B) Invite all my friends and neighbours over for an impromptu disco rave?

C) Spend the weekend in deep meditation now that I finally have some peace and quiet?

D) Make some headway with these bad boys (pictured)?

Soubhiville Do what‘s going to make you feel best, but I‘d clean some each morning, then dive into those books for the rest of the days. 12mo

I've been told I need to read these two self help books, but which to start first?

The book that'll stop me from eating cake for breakfast or the book that'll stop me beating myself up for eating cake for breakfast?

Or maybe I'll just go back to bed 😴

There‘s some nuggets of wisdom here! If it‘s been hard to action on any type of lifestyle change, this should help with respect to process and how to effect change on one‘s life … there are slow parts but the good part is they are over quickly and before we know it, we‘re reading about the next thing…

Your results have very little to do with the goals you set and nearly everything to do with the systems(habits) you follow. This book is very insightful on a very basic level. I‘m reading a chapter a day as I try to incorporate some better habits.
