A few years ago, I wrote a review for Charles Duhigg’s The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business. So, when I stumbled upon James Clear’s Atomic Habits, I was curious to see what insights the author had to offer on this intriguing subject.

Here’s my take: Atomic Habits by James Clear is a smart book, penned by a sharp, analytical author, grounded in extensive scientific research into human habits and their impact on our lives. Clear begins the book by sharing a personal story of a serious accident he had in high school, which led him to make a conscious decision to adopt an organized strategy for creating new habits.

As he embraced these habits, he noticed significant progress and improvement in his quality of life. He realized that developing a system tailored to his needs could propel him to greater achievements and simplify complex situations. In Atomic Habits, Clear emphasizes the importance of reassessing and reconstructing our habits to serve us better, rather than being enslaved by them.

He highlights the need for time, motivation, and strong willpower to change habits, as well as the importance of redesigning our environments to support our new habits. Clear acknowledges the challenge of forming new habits, stressing the necessity of consistency for results. Throughout the book, Clear illustrates his points with numerous factual stories, such as the “two-minute rule,” which suggests starting habits that take less than two minutes to do.

He elaborates extensively on the four laws of habit creation: making it obvious, attractive, easy, and satisfying. In conclusion, Atomic Habits offers valuable insights and practical advice for those motivated to make positive changes in their lives and achieve their goals. If you’re ready to improve and achieve your goals, then reading Atomic Habits by James Clear is highly recommended.
