Here are the 11 most powerful lessons from Atomic Habits.
This book was written by James Clear.
1. Get 1% better every day.
Even if you only improve 1% a day, it adds up to big results.
To achieve progress, you don’t have to be flawless every day.
If you get 1% better every day for a year, you’ll be roughly 38 times better!
2. Identity is formed by habits.
To form long-lasting habits, you must first establish a new identity.
When you say:
- I am strong
- I am a thinking leader
- I am successful
- I am an entrepreneur
You alter your vision.
3. Change your persona to alter your habits
Focusing on who you want to become rather than what you want to attain is the most effective strategy to modify your habits.
Establish your identity (who you want to become) first.
4. Delayed gratification
Success is more often achieved through the pain of discipline than through the ease of distraction.
More reps = more muscle mass.
Spending less today will allow you to have more money tomorrow.
5. The cycle of habit
A habit is a pattern of action that has been repeated enough times that it has become second nature.
Any habit is essentially a four-phase feedback loop.
6. Stacking of habits
Stacking of habits Combines new behaviors with those you already have.
For example, if we have a practice of bathing at a certain time, cleaning the toilet can be done thereafter because we are already in the vicinity.
7. Work with a Schedule
Professional knows to complete their tasks according to their schedule all the daily task to complete the project is scheduled.
Whereas amateurs get pulled off course by the urgencies of life.
8. The two-minute Rule.
Any new habit should only take 2 minutes to get started.
Improving a habit occurs after it has been established, so instead of planning it out in the most advanced steps, plan it out in a way that is easier to establish and then concentrate on improving.
9. It’s crucial to consider your surroundings.
The environment we live in and the people we associate with have an impact on our conduct.
You are a product of the environment in which you live.
Take control of your environment before it takes control of you.
10. Negative habits should be replaced.
The majority of bad habits are caused by one of two factors.
Boredom or stress. Substitute a positive and healthy behavior with the bad one.
Understanding the source of your unhealthy habit is an important aspect of the recovery process.
11. Reward good behavior.
We learn which habits are worth remembering through rewards.
The brain functions as a reward sensor. Allow the reward to fulfill the desire.
And you’ll want to do it again and again.
