Atomic Habits by James Clear is the best book ever written on creating new habits that result in lasting change.

You know exactly what I’m talking about if you’ve read it.

But if you haven’t, here’s why:

Reason #1: Habits are the Compound Interest of Self-Improvement.

James Clear firmly believes that tiny habit changes can have a huge impact over time. If you focus on getting just 1% better every day, your results will compound quickly. What we water grows, and a simple to-execute new daily habit creates incredible results over time.

Reason #2: Don’t Set Goals. Focus on Your Systems Instead. 

Goal setting is a great way to focus your attention and energy, but it’s not the only way. James Clear argues that focusing on developing an effective system is often more valuable than setting specific goals. By creating a simple system that enables you to continue making small changes over time, you can quickly reach your desired outcome without needing to set long-term goals.

Reason #3: Don’t Focus on what You Want to Achieve. Focus on Who You Wish To Become. 

James Clear suggests that by shifting your focus away from what you want to achieve and onto the person you wish to become, you start to become a person whose default behavior naturally creates the things you want in life. Achieving your goals becomes an ingrained part of your ongoing behavior rather than just a temporary sprint toward a set goal. This is a much more effective strategy to maintain positive change long term.

Reason #4: The Four Laws of Behavior Change.

James Clear says new habits should be obvious, attractive, easy, and satisfying. If you focus on these four laws when creating any new habit, you’ll find your new habits are much easier to stick with and produce much better results over time.

This book changed my life. I’m over 100 lbs (45 kg) lighter and in the best mental and physical shape of my life, thanks to the strategies outlined in this book. I highly recommend checking it out.
