We all have habits that we would like to break, smoking

drinking and chewing fingernails come to mind. Likewise,

we all have habits we would like to build, like getting up or

going to bed early for example. "Atomic Habits: Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results" by James Clear is just what you need. According to the author, "If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system... You do not rise to the level

of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. In this book, you'll get a proven plan that can take you to new heights."

Here are some things thisbook will teach you:

• Build a system for getting 1% better every day.

• Avoid the common mistakes most people make when

changing habits.

• Overcome a lack of motivation and willpower.

• Make time for new habits even when life gets crazy.

• Design your environment to make success easier.

• Make tiny, easy changes that deliver big results.

• Get back on track when you get off course.

• Most importantly, how to put these ideas into practice in

real life.

"'Atomic Habits 'will give you the tools and strategies

you need to transform your habits-whether you are a team

looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, and achieve success that lasts."
