Atomic Habits by James Clear
This book offers a framework for improving - every day. James Clear reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results. He believes the ultimate purpose of habits is to solve the problems of life with as little energy and effort as possible. According to the author, “Any habit can be broken down into a feedback loop that involves four steps: cue, craving, response, and reward.” Clear gives the example of two different approaches of people who are trying to quit smoking when they are offered a cigarette. One says, “No thanks, I’m trying to quit.” And the other says, “No thanks, I don’t smoke.” The second person is making a small but fundamental distinction with their response. It’s not about what they are or aren’t trying to do, it’s about who they are.
