No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving - every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, 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. If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.

This book not only helped me learn how to create lasting habits, but it helped me to give myself some grace over the fact that I haven’t been able to maintain many of my good habits up until now. I have spent years and years becoming so depressed over the person I’ve become; mourning the loss of the driven, accomplished teenager I once was, and wondering “how did I turn into this?” I’ve spent way too much time thinking that I was just becoming lazy, unproductive, and incapable of success - wondering why I didn’t have the grit and willpower I did when I was younger. But this book clearly explained the science of human behavior in a way that made me realize - I’m just like everyone else, EVEN SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE. The difference is that they know how to create situations for themselves to allow themselves to succeed. Now I know how, and I can’t wait to get to work. Thank you, James, for this brilliant book, and for being the light I’ve been desperately searching for to pull me out of this dark place I’ve been in. I can’t tell you how much it means to me!

Acuff knows the reason why many writers' novels go unfinished - it's the same reason why gyms are filled in the first week of January and empty by the end of the month and why people stop learning a new language once they get past the easy parts. It's not just that people lose momentum or get distracted. People give up on projects when they fail to live up to their own high expectations and decide that if they can't do something perfectly, they won't do it at all. If you're going to finish, you have to kill perfectionism.

I don't review books. I'm a taker like that. But I had to write at least something because I absolutely loved the book. It's funny, practical and pretty spot on. The perspective Jon takes completely changed the way I look at my goals and I actually might finish my own book because of his advice. l highly recommend.
