And I absolutely mean it what I said in Headline of my comment. I have been following jamesclear.com from very long. His one article has absolutely changed my life, imagine what this book can offer to you.
I have been chasing to build many habits and experimenting with them a lot but I would always find a bit difficult to stay with my changed behavior and then while browsing on internet studying more on habits formation I stumbled on James's articles and boy this guy has the answer for habit formation.
If you are looking to form a new habit you have to read this Book.
I have never commented online on any of the books that I have read but this one deserves a lot of appreciation.
This one is for you James, in future if you ever read this comment I want to tell you that your work has hugely impacted my life. And I express my huge gratitude towards your work on Atomic Habits and the articles you post. Thank a lot for this :)
Before starting this book, write down some good habits you want to build and some bad habits you want to break. This book is filled with practical steps and examples. Yes, there are plenty of habit-building books out there (just as there are plenty of diet books but yet there are still more new books published every year). Plenty of people are seeking the right book that resonates with them. The key points in this book are: * Compound Effect - Very small changes over time will have a big impact. * Habit Building Techniques - Make good habits into routines; use positive reinforcements and other techniques outlined in the book. * Monitor and Measure - Keep track of your progress and improvements.
I have been a subscriber of James's email for a number of years and have always thoroughly enjoyed his writing. It's practical, useful and always well presented. As soon as he announced his book, I was straight on Amazon to pre-order. Although it only arrived today, I had the chance to listen to an early audio book copy. It's absolutely superb!
This book is as practical as the content of his email newsletters, and I intend on reading (or listening to) this book multiple times over so I can 'extract' as much value from it as possible. He offers background, context, stories and more, to illustrate each of his points. As with all books of this nature, merely listening is not enough; application and implementation is key to gaining value from it.
There's a good amount of additional supporting material that you can download too (links are in the book). So you not only get the book to read, but lots of extras to help you make use of what is taught.
It's an engaging listen (or read) and comes highly recommended by me! If you're unsure, search online for "James Clear", have a read of some of his content, and make a decision.
This book is just fantastic!! I am a reader of self development books especially, so I basicly study in details the books that I read, but this book I couldn't stop using my hilighters:) It seems like every idea that I read is important and I want to retain it. Amazing, fantastic, awesome, deserved to be read and kept, even in a decluttered house!! And as a conclusion, I already sstart to see improvements in my behaviours because I start to understand the psychology underneath.
