Book Review: Atomic Habits by James Clear

“When you fall in love with the process rather than the product, you don’t have to wait to give yourself permission to be happy. You can be satisfied anytime your system is running.”

I have read manys self-improvements or productivity books and these books mostly gives you the motivation to do anything and you feel great but most of the time you don’t have an exact process to start something or framework you could follow. So after reading a book I forget what is written in book after some times. Atomic Habits by James Clear is a little different. Instead of just focusing on theory and motivation about doing great. It gives a practical framework to follow. So you could make good habits and break bad habits.

In the first part of the book, the author tells us about the science behind how habits are formed. Importance of compound effect in terms of habits in our life. In later chapters, the author gives us a framework to follow to build a good habit and break bad habits. It tells that each habit is kind of loop which consists of four steps that is cue, craving, response, and reward. Later each section of the book focuses on these steps and gives examples and scientific explanations on how we can using this build and break habits. The writing was good as I didn’t get bored while reading all these facts and all.

I think It’s a great book on habits building. Before starting this book maybe write down a few good and bad habits you want to build and break. And start reading and applying principles from this book. What is your favourite productivity or self-help book, let me know in comments.
