Atomic Habits

An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones

by James Clear

In the last couple of months I’ve found it hard to keep up with two of my most valued good habits (exercise and language-learning), even with all the tools and strategies gleaned from reading other books about the habit-forming (tracking, stacking etc.) It was time to shape up and read another motivational self-improvement book, and I’m so glad this is the one I picked up.

Atomic Habits tackles every aspect of the habit-making and habit-breaking process with alacrity, it packs in oodles of direct actionable advice, and feels like it covers every single base that the dark side of me could use as an excuse to not get my act together.

I believe that if you properly read this book and take in its wisdom, there is no way that you can fail in moulding your habits to suit your goals.

As with almost every book I read about productivity, it had too many examples from the world of sport for my tastes, but if that’s the only criticism I can mount it’s probably a pretty good read.
