Atomic Habits by James Clear

12 minute affiliate marketing

A habit is a routine or behaviour that is performed regularly, and in many cases, automatically.

In the long run, the quality of our lives depends on the quality of our habits. This summary includes a step-by-step plan for building better habits – cue, craving, response, and reward – and the four laws of behaviour change that evolve out of these steps.

There’s no one right way to create better habits, but this summary describes an approach that will be effective regardless of where you start or what you’re trying to change.

The Fundamentals

Too often, we convince ourselves that massive success requires massive action. However, the difference a tiny improvement can make over time is astounding. The effects of your habits multiply as you repeat them.

We often dismiss small changes because they don’t seem to matter, but over your lifetime, these choices determine the difference between who you are and who you could be.

Habits are a double-edged sword. Bad habits can cut you down just as easily as good habits can build you up. Your habits can compound for you or against you. Productivity, knowledge, and relationships positively compound. Stress, negative thoughts and outrage negatively compound.
