Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones
by James Clear
The secret to having a successful life is not a single habit. It’s many habits that compound and create a system of living. One single habit may change your life by 1%—it’s too small to notice. But what if you create one habit every day for 365 days? You will become 37x better! That’s the power of small improvements every day.
This book about habits is based on new research and the experience of James Clear.
