Complex topics explained simply and succinctly. Entertaining, actionable and insightful. Habits are systems not goals.....GOLD, thank you James! It was like reading a book by an old friend. I look forward to James's emails every week and this book takes his learnings to the next level.
I found the four laws easy to understand and apply. Two things especially useful were the concepts about 'the plateau of latent potential', and 'the three layers of behavior change'. I believe that if we adopt identity-based behavior we can overcome the barriers to reaping the rewards that lie beyond our latent potential. I gladly recommend reading this book.
Atomic Habits takes self help to a new level, through a rigorous scientific study of how to compound the benefits of good habits. Tiny ‘atomic’ improvements in your lifestyle may seem to make little difference. Clear demonstrates that the results of such changes are exponential rather than linear. Every step on the path of improvement multiplies with every other step, as long as we maintain consistent effort and keep a clear eye on our process. Like compound interest in finance, the yield curve of compounding our interests repays constant focus. A brilliant book, with excellent case studies and grounding in the psychology of human behaviour.
