Atomic Habits by James Clear - Book for Decades

By: Rahul Makwana

The books talks about how anyone can archive everything by just improving 1 percent everyday .

For example, if you read book for 15 minutes everyday for year then you can finish 12 books.

Now, imagine, you promise yourself that I will start reading from tomorrow and later you say, not today, from next Monday  I will read for 1 hour everyday.

You will give excuse over excuse because you overpromise yourself, instant, start like baby and just read for only 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, if you feel, you want to read for 20 minutes then go read it, don't force yourself.

The lessons is simple, your mind won't notice small change but if you make huge change on the first day then after two or three days, you will come back to square Zero and that will demotivate to start again.

Favorite Quote from the book

“If you want better results, then forget about setting goals. Focus on your system instead.”

The book explores the science of habit formation and how small, consistent changes can lead to significant improvements in our lives.

The book is divided into four main sections:


(1) The importance of habits  (2) How habits are formed,  (3) How to create new habits, and  (4) How to break bad habits.

Four-step Pattern Habits.


1. Cue  A piece of information that suggests there’s a reward to be found, like the smell of a cookie or a dark room waiting to light up.

2. Craving The motivation to change something is to get the reward, like tasting a delicious cookie or being able to see.

3. Response Whatever thought or action you need to take to get to the reward.

4. Reward The satisfying feeling you get from the change, along with the lesson of whether to do it again or not.

Form New habit


1. Make it obvious.  Don’t hide your fruits in your fridge, put them on display front and center.

2. Make it attractive Start with the fruit you like the most, so you’ll actually want to eat one when you see it.

1. Make it easy Don’t create needless friction by focusing on fruits that are hard to peel. Bananas and apples are super easy to eat, for example.

1. Make it satisfying If you like the fruit you picked, you’ll love eating it and feel healthier as a result!

Atomic habit is the most powerful and helpful book written by James Clear. The author has told us scientific ways to quit bad habits and add new habits.
