Book Review: Atomic Habits by James Clear

Without a doubt, I am a fan of self-improvement / personal development books and this book right here is one of the best that I have read ๐Ÿฅฐ. OMG! Where has this book been all my life?? (It was only published in 2018, so I guess in the author’s head๐Ÿง ). Atomic Habits is just one of those books that everyone should read at least one time in their lifetime, the sooner the better. This book offers a very practical and insightful guide to developing good habits and getting rid of bad habits with many many examples about how you can go about doing this. Do your future self a favor and get a copy ๐Ÿ™‚ My rating for this book is 5 out of 5, obviously โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ.

This book is a keeper!

Atomic Habits was written by Mr. James Clear and what I enjoyed most about it was that it provided a novel guide to building good habits and breaking bad habits. It is an extremely practical book and gives clear instructions about how you can make small changes everyday to help develop habits that you want to keep and that will help you become the type of person you want to be๐Ÿ™. The book is broken down into four main sections which highlight Mr. Clear’s four simple laws to form good habits. He goes into an in depth discussion in each section on the four laws stated below:

  • The first law – Make it Obvious
  • The second law – Make It Attractive
  • The third law – Make It Easy
  • The fourth law – Make It Satisfying

Some of my favorite quotes from the book include ๐Ÿ˜š:

Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement. The same way that money multiplies through compound interest, the effects of your habits multiply as you repeat them.

True behaviour change is identity change. You might start a habit because of motivation, but the only reason you’ll stick with one is that it becomes part of your identity.

We do not change by snapping our fingers and deciding to be someone entirely new. We change bit by bit, day by day, habit by habit. We are continually undergoing microevolutions of the self.

People often think it’s weird to get hyped about reading one page or meditating for one minute or making one sales call. But the point is not to do one thing. The point is to master the habit of showing up. The truth is, a habit must be established before it can be improved.

So if you are into self improvement too and want to really learn how to develop good habits that can be sustained, this book is for you. It good for any age group and I am sure there is something you can learn from Mr. James Clear’s book entitled Atomic Habits๐Ÿ˜.

Much Love
