What is it about?
Atomic Habits is all about hacking your own chemistry and psychology with the aim of re-programming yourself to be the person you dream of being. People think that in order to change their lives, they have to think big. They set massive goals and try to achieve them using all sorts of reward and punishment systems to motivate themselves. But James teaches that real change comes from compounding hundreds of small decisions. Tiny habits that are easy to create but that will completely transform your life.
James has four simple laws that make good habit-creation easy:
- Make it obvious
- Make it attractive
- Make it easy
- Make it satisfying
He teaches the steps, the psychology and the cheats to each rule. His writing is easy to read and his teaching is simple to follow.
This book WILL change your life if you read it.
