Atomic Habits : An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones by James Clear - Kindle Edition
Atomic Habits is the culmination of his years of studying what works--and what doesn't--when building habits that will give you the kind of life you yearn for. And he shows you how to accomplish it: with tiny changes that yield remarkable results.
James Clear's work scientifically backs up his premise that it's not your goals that help you achieve your dreams. It's the daily (often tiny) incremental actions of the systems you have in place. While he has the science and studies to back up each point, it is explained simply and concisely. (Material in the notes and on the website is there for anyone who wants to read about the studies in detail.)
If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again, not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. As Clear puts it, "I believe that you do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.
This book helps you comprehend why we act in such manners and how to design the solution. It presents the outline you should follow and how to make it yours by modifying according to your needs.
