Atomic Habits
James Clear
A revolutionary system to get 1 per cent better every day. People think when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert
James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions –doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes earlier, or holding a single short phone call. He calls them atomic habits. In this groundbreaking book, Clears reveals exactly how these minuscule changes can grow into such life-altering outcomes. He uncovers a handful of simple life hacks (the forgotten art of Habit Stacking, the unexpected power of the Two
Minute Rule, or the trick to entering the Goldilocks Zone) and delves into cutting edge psychology and neuroscience to explain why they matter. Along the way, he tells
inspiring stories of Olympic gold medallists, leading CEO’s, and distinguished scientists who have used the science of tiny habits to stay productive, motivated and happy. These small changes will have a revolutionary effect on your career, your relationships,and your life.
