Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones is James Clear‘s compilation of the heroically-earned insights he’s accumulated in a lifetime of learning how to build effective habits after being hit in the face with a baseball bat the last day of his high school sophomore year. His injuries could have killed him. He had to relearn how to walk in a straight line.
I worried that this book is an “Of Course You Can” book: a book with little guidance about how to determine why, so far, you haven’t used all these so-sensible tips and tricks. If you could easily accomplish the tips and tricks, you might not be reading the book in the first place. It isn’t! It’s a carefully structured system, with clear explanations and rationales for each element of the system, designed to help anyone generate better routines for activities as diverse as getting to sleep and making cold sales calls. Developing good habits isn’t easy, neither is unlearning unproductive habits. But Atomic Habits is a valuable starting point to achieve such goals.
