Book Review: Atomic Habits

Author: James Clear

If you are looking for a framework to build new habits, this is a great book to have in your collection. Atomic Habits: Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results lays out a simple, scientifically sound and effective framework to either build new good habits or stop bad habits. I listened to this book on Audible, so I did not get to see the supplemental material, but it is available for download. At a high level, his approach is to look for small changes, and when they are strung together, they can lead to big changes.

The one thing I took from the book that was memorable was a story he told about talking with a coach about the difference between good and elite. The difference is being that elite competitors is that they love the boring hard work, the thousands of repetitions or hours of rehearsal. This is a great example of Agile Best Self Principles 3, 7 and 8 – daily practice, active participation and sustainability – on the journey to create our next best version of ourselves.

This book is a good tool to help us on that journey.
