Transform your life with tiny changes in behaviour, starting now.
There's never been a better time to make a few tiny changes that will revolutionise your life.
A revolutionary system to get one 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 early, or holding a single short phone call.
He calls them atomic habits.
In this ground-breaking book, Clear 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.

That said, sometimes you do need the reminder. And I did pick up a few useful tips. So it’s worth the read. But don’t expect anything special.

This book is completely different, a no nonsense, down to earth practical piece with fantastic takeaways which anyone can apply so easily to fit in with their lifestyle. It is so methodical in it's approach and so clear (the family name suits him well! :-p).
It has a perfect blend of research, anecdotes, real life stories, tools and references. I also love his sense of humour and those little details interjected along the way. I simply did not want the book to end.
I urge anyone who loves the book to read his blog which has loads of truly awesome resources. Having implemented some of the tools, I already find that they have had a tremendous impact.
He is for me the Dale Carnegie of the modern era with added humour. Cannot recommend this book enough. I bought it on Kindle and had to buy the paperback version too to have it on my shelf!
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.
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.
