James Clear has taken an old topic – forming good habits, breaking bad ones – and breathed new life into it. He breaks everything down to its simplest components, hence the “atom” in Atomic Habits, but he keeps it interesting. The best parts were the strokes of powerful and inspiring observations, like this:
You don’t rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems. Wow, that hits home.
Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become . Again, this will come back to me every time I consider taking a dubious action.
This book will help you see how the seed of every single habit is really just a single, tiny decision. If you can control the tiniest of decisions, you will become the designer of your world and not merely the consumer of it.
This book was pure, pure inspiration!
