One of the interesting books I read this year is Atomic Habits by James Clear.
Actually I am not a big fan of self-help, self-improvement books. Certainly not the TED Talk type preaching. And yet there are few individuals I follow and learn from. I liked Mark Manson’s blog and also his book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F**k”, though didn’t like it a lot. The main problem with that book was that it was still a compilation of blogs…Mark didn’t graduate from blogger to an author. The books doesn’t have a great substance and a coherent narrative. Still, it was not a bad reading.
Another person I follow is James Clear – a very popular blogger who writes at https://jamesclear.com/ and is very active on Twitter. I came across his blog a couple of years ago and have been following since then.
I have also subscribed to his newsletter called “3-2-1 Thursday Newsletter” where every Thursday, James sends out a newsletter with 3 ideas from James, 2 quotes from others, and 1 question for you – the reader. Very interesting format and contents!
Earlier this year I got this book Atomic Habits – which is about how small, incremental improvements add up to big transformations in life. I really liked the book and am trying to implement a few things in practice.
Instead of writing an elaborate book review I thought it would be good to post a talk by James Clear himself so that get the core idea of this book directly from the author.
