Transform your life with tiny changes in behaviour, starting now.

People think that 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 early, or holding a single short phone call.

He calls them atomic habits.

In this ground-breaking 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 medalists, leading CEOs, 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.

    An eye opener

    Firstly, i do not agree with some of the reviews this book has received. As someone who hates the American self help “you can do it” crap, i do not agree that this book is one of those. This book i is a very clearly written tool for creating new good habits and destroying old bad habits. There is no “find yourself, be one with the habit” rubbish that people seem to be talking about; there are lots of scientific and academic references to back up what he is saying. Each step of creating a new habit (or destroying an old one) is broken down and an example from business or sport is given to add emphasis to why this is relevant, a credible example.I have not thought about my bad habits in the way presented in this book and i will definitely be using its tools too remove my old habits and create new ones. An excellent read.

    A book that can change your life… if you put the effort in

    This book has been instrumental in getting my life back on track this year. 2020 was rubbish for everyone but I knew I couldn’t let another year of my life go to waste. Having implanted learning from the book I have lost a stone and a half and made other improvements to my life and career.While the book is great for getting you started. Only you can make the changes.

    very persuasive presentation of mostly familiar material

    On reflection, I am not sure that I added a great deal to my stock of knowledge about human habits from reading this book. But I did find the presentation of the material here very clear and very persuasive – and it might actually lead to changes in my life – where previous reading about habits has simply added to my stock of knowledge.Particularly interesting, and particularly easy to implement are the thoughts that: it’s helpful to take stock of habits and think what you want to do about them (after all you’ve acquired them rather randomly through life), and that it’s fairly easy to do something about them – form intentions that are linked to ‘cues’ or times and places (rather than just vague intentions) and reflect on what it’s very easy to do to get a habit going – read one page of a book at bedtime for example, not a chapter, and find habits that themselves bring rewards (find a nice flavour of toothpaste for example)…and it’s also good on bad habits (mostly: avoid cues, like returning Vietnam vets avoided Vietnam cues – or you might keep alcohol or high sugar drinks out of the house)…There’s a bit of helpful overall encouragement too – small changes to habits can add up to big changes in your life…And some further material that while interesting (for example a comparison of the physiques of swimmers and middle distance runners) seems a little set apart from the main themes of the book…Sometimes you might question the analysis (is over-eating really because we are suckers for high fat high sugar foods due to our genes, or is it that ‘we need protein and will eat till we get it’ as for example in the book Eat Like The Animals – which is an interesting variant on this theme)….Overall, though, strongly recommended.

    The hidden secret to success… habits

    This book just might be the most important book you ever read.We all know what we need to do to be successful but we don’t do it. Why? We have the wrong habits. We surf the net when we know we should be starting the company we know we can. We eat candy when we know we should be eating something healthily… and so on. By why do we do these things we know are wrong? And why don’t we do the things we know are right? Because we have the wrong habits. I used to think that will power was something you either had innately or you didn’t. The author clearly explains that this is not true. Will power is more about your environment than anything innate. He also explains how to change your environment to get rid of bad habits and instil new, good ones. I read this book a week ago and it has already changed my life. Read it, summarise it and re-read the summary. Treat it like a book you have to master for university exams. It’s brilliant and if you apply the rules, you have every chance of realising your potential.

    One of the few good ones and it works

    I’m a little snobby about self help books – like many things, there’s a handful of excellent ones, and a lot of rubbish. This falls into the former category. I’ve read and enjoyed a few of the author’s articles and wondered if there was enough to justify a book… there is. It’s much easier to apply than Covey’s 7 habits of highly effective people (one of 3 personal development books I like including this one) and the tone is informed but humble. More importantly, my resistant butt is exercising again, reading more and watching less mindless tv so that’s proof enough for me. Will happily recommend.

    For anything you want to improve in your life

    James Clear is the best. His writing is clear, sorry, no joke intended there – all straightforward and beautifully expressed. His character and integrity come through honestly. The ideas are all explained and illustrated with examples, and you will find them practical and helpful. I’d recommend getting on to his email list, as his regular free communications are rather better than many other people pushing life-improvement concepts. (If you don’t agree with me you can always unsubscribe!) The book is well worth the value, in my opinion.

    Best book I have read on the subject

    I have enjoyed reading the weekly newsletter James sends out so knew the book would be good, I just didn’t know how good. It is so practical and explains ideas in a way that I could connect with. There are so many great strategies to address the barriers to maintaining habits. ‘Never miss twice’ has become my profile picture and such a great way to deal with the occasional relapse to laziness or when life takes over. Thanks James for sharing these ideas in such a useable format and for staying on task so the rest of us can achieve our full potential too.

    Warning: cheesy cliched praise ahead (I loved it)

    I did warn you I was going to be cheesy: Yep, this book has changed my life.In fact, following James Clear’s emails for the past few years has had a hand in changing my life for the better, too.Here’s an example: I used to struggle to get up early. I was really, really, REALLY awful at it… yet I do my best work when I get up early. (To me, early is 6.30 am.) I made one simple change based on this book, and now I get up at 6.30 every day. I know, I know, it’s a tiny thing – but it’s a big deal to me.And that’s not the only way my life has changed for the better.This book is on my “must read every year” list, not just because it’s full of actionable, practical, non-judgemental advice and info, but because it’s an enjoyable read. I teach business owners how to write books, and this is one of the best I’ve read. There’s no filler. No boring preaching. Just great stories and clear actions to take.If you’re struggling to build and maintain good habits, and change bad habits, this is the book for you.

    Life changing – well worth buying

    James Clear has a great writing style which captures you and makes it easy to grasp his teaching. I have been reading his blog for years and got tremendous value from his actionable points. Keep up the good work James! Atomic Habits will be life changing for many. A few of my favourite concepts : 4 Burners theory, the bus station (life choices), and focusing on a system as opposed to goals. I’ve had so many eureka moments and realisations reading the blog and look forward to finishing this wonderful book.

    As good as gold

    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.
