Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones by James Clear
Atomic Habits provides a tried-and-true framework for daily improvement, no matter what your goals may be. As one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, James Clear shows you how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results in this comprehensive book.
Changing your habits isn’t a problem for you; it’s a problem for your environment. Your system is the problem. When bad habits recur, it’s not because you’re unwilling to change; rather, it’s because your system for doing so is flawed. No matter how hard you try, you’ll never reach the heights you set for yourself. In the end, you are only as good as the sum of your parts. You’ll learn a tried-and-true method that will help you achieve your goals.
Clear is renowned for his ability to simplify complex topics into actionable steps that can be implemented in both personal and professional settings. In this book, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits a reality and bad habits a non-existent possibility. True tales from Olympic gold medalists, artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and rise above their peers will be shared with readers along the way.
Find out how:
(Even if life gets crazy) make time to develop new habits
overcome a lack of drive and determination;
* make it easier for yourself to succeed by creating an environment that is conducive to it
back on track when you get off track;
…as well as a lot more.
Whether you’re part of a team trying to win a championship, a company trying to reshape an industry, or an individual trying to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or accomplish any other goal, Atomic Habits will change the way you think about progress and success.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R. Covey
After reading Stephen Covey’s book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, many people realized that their lives were going in the wrong direction and that there were many simple things they could do to correct the course of their lives. This book was a wonderful source of education for people, a source of education in how to live a successful life.
However, not everyone is familiar with Stephen Covey’s model, or they may not have read it yet. There’s no doubt about it: We’re surrounded by a constant barrage of failure. Of course, following Covey’s model or any other model will not ensure your success, but if the book’s sales figures are any indication, we should have seen many more successes by now. So, what’s the problem?
For those who have already read the book, there are two main issues that need to be addressed. As a first obstacle, most people are unwilling or unable to put Stephen Covey’s principles into action. They treat his magnum opus as if it were just another coffee-table book or something you take along on vacation and then promptly forget about. They have no idea how life-altering the information in this book is. Alternatively, they take the information and fail to put in the time and effort necessary to turn it into knowledge.
The second problem is that many people view Covey’s ideals through a single lens. This is a group of people who have already read the book and are pleased with it. In the event that you ask them what the seven habits are, they are able to recite them verbatim, but they fail to grasp the larger context. Covey was trying to say more than he could in words, but they don’t get it. It’s true that this book has hidden meanings, but many people haven’t been able to see them.
Our goal is to accomplish this. Covey’s book, or rather his model, is what we are trying to demonstrate to you. It was perfectly normal. If you use it, no part of your life should be left unaffected. All you have to do is grasp these ideals and make an effort to put them into practice in your daily life.
Prior to entering that territory, it is critical that we have a firm grasp on what these ideals are. What was Stephen Covey’s model in his best-selling book? In the beginning, we’ll try to understand his model, and then we’ll apply it to every aspect of our lives.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Coelho’s enchanting book has spawned a worldwide fan base. By way of introduction, let me introduce you to Santiago: an Andalusian shepherd boy who sets out from Spain to Egypt in search of an ancient treasure that is said to be hidden near the Pyramids.
Santiago meets a Romany woman, a man who claims to be a king, and an alchemist on his journey, all of whom point him in the right direction. Even if Santiago is unable to overcome the challenges that stand in his way, no one knows what kind of treasure he will unearth or whether he will succeed.
The story of Santiago is a timeless testament to the transformative power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts. It is lush, evocative, and humane.
