Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results

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. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights.

Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, readers will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field.

Learn how to:

  • make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy);
  • overcome a lack of motivation and willpower;
  • design your environment to make success easier;
  • get back on track when you fall off course;
  • ...and much more.

    Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success, and 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, or achieve any other goal.

    Jenny: I often drink two glasses of wine at night. For years, I’ve been trying to stick to one glass. I think I want the second, but the reality is that it just makes me tired and less productive.

    Atomic Habits is literally helping me achieve my goal. The following idea is one that really impacted my behavior.

    First, Clear emphasizes the power of 1 percent improvements, that tiny habits are the building blocks of big results.

    Next, instead of focusing on a goal i.e. “I will lose ten pounds” or “I will only drink one glass of wine each day,” Clear focuses on the process, on who you wish to become.

    “Many people begin the process of changing their habits by focusing on what they want to achieve. This leads us to outcome-based habits. The alternative is to build identity-based habits. With this approach, we start by focusing on who we wish to become.”

    So now I say to myself, “I’m the type of person who values good health and productivity” rather than “I’m only going to drink one glass of wine.” Because as we all know, when we set a goal of trying not to do something, it’s pretty easy to do it anyway.

    This is book is chocked full of actionable advice and inspiration. LOVE IT!

    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Brené Brown has taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong, and brave the wilderness. Now, based on new research conducted with leaders, change makers, and culture shifters, she's showing us how to put those ideas into practice so we can step up and lead.

    Look for Brené Brown's new podcast, Dare to Lead, as well as her ongoing podcast Unlocking Us!

    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BLOOMBERG


    Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.

    When we dare to lead, we don't pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don't see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don't avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it's necessary to do good work.

    But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we're choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we're scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can't do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.

    Four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question:

    How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?

    In this new book, Brown uses research, stories, and examples to answer these questions in the no-BS style that millions of readers have come to expect and love.

    Brown writes, "One of the most important findings of my career is that daring leadership is a collection of four skill sets that are 100 percent teachable, observable, and measurable. It's learning and unlearning that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with your whole heart. Easy? No. Because choosing courage over comfort is not always our default. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and our work. It's why we're here."

    Whether you've read Daring Greatly and Rising Strong or you're new to Brené Brown's work, this book is for anyone who wants to step up and into brave leadership.

    "Timely and urgent . . . Pang is a dogged investigator." --The New York Times

    "Moving and powerful." --Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author

    Discover the truth behind the discounts

    In 2012, an Oregon mother named Julie Keith opened up a package of Halloween decorations. The cheap foam headstones had been five dollars at Kmart, too good a deal to pass up. But when she opened the box, something shocking fell out: an SOS letter, handwritten in broken English.
    "Sir: If you occassionally buy this product, please kindly resend this letter to the World Human Right Organization. Thousands people here who are under the persicuton of the Chinese Communist Party Government will thank and remember you forever."
    The note's author, Sun Yi, was a mild-mannered Chinese engineer turned political prisoner, forced into grueling labor for campaigning for the freedom to join a forbidden meditation movement. He was imprisoned alongside petty criminals, civil rights activists, and tens of thousands of others the Chinese government had decided to "reeducate," carving foam gravestones and stitching clothing for more than fifteen hours a day.

    In Made in China, investigative journalist Amelia Pang pulls back the curtain on Sun's story and the stories of others like him, including the persecuted Uyghur minority group whose abuse and exploitation is rapidly gathering steam. What she reveals is a closely guarded network of laogai--forced labor camps--that power the rapid pace of American consumerism. Through extensive interviews and firsthand reportage, Pang shows us the true cost of America's cheap goods and shares what is ultimately a call to action--urging us to ask more questions and demand more answers from the companies we patronize.

    Tim Ferriss, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek, shares the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure book--a compilation of tools, tactics, and habits from 130+ of the world's top performers. From iconic entrepreneurs to elite athletes, from artists to billionaire investors, their short profiles can help you answer life's most challenging questions, achieve extraordinary results, and transform your life.

    From the author:

    In 2017, several of my close friends died in rapid succession. It was a very hard year, as it was for many people.

    It was also a stark reminder that time is our scarcest, non-renewable resource.

    With a renewed sense of urgency, I began asking myself many questions:

    Were my goals my own, or simply what I thought I should want?
    How much of life had I missed from underplanning or overplanning?
    How could I be kinder to myself?
    How could I better say "no" to the trivial many to better say "yes" to the critical few?
    How could I best reassess my priorities and my purpose in this world?

    To find answers, I reached out to the most impressive world-class performers in the world, ranging from wunderkinds in their 20s to icons in their 70s and 80s. No stone was left unturned.

    This book contains their answers--practical and tactical advice from mentors who have found solutions. Whether you want to 10x your results, get unstuck, or reinvent yourself, someone else has traveled a similar path and taken notes.

    This book, Tribe of Mentors, includes many of the people I grew up viewing as idols or demi-gods. Less than 10% have been on my podcast (The Tim Ferriss Show, more than 200 million downloads), making this a brand-new playbook of playbooks.

    No matter your challenge or opportunity, something in these pages can help.

    Among other things, you will learn:

    - More than 50 morning routines--both for the early riser and those who struggle to get out of bed.
    - How TED curator Chris Anderson realized that the best way to get things done is to let go.
    - The best purchases of $100 or less (you'll never have to think about the right gift again).
    - How to overcome failure and bounce back towards success.
    - Why Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton believes that the best art will always be the riskiest.
    - How to meditate and be more mindful (and not just for those that find it easy).
    - Why tennis champion Maria Sharapova believe that "losing makes you think in ways victories can't."
    - How to truly achieve work-life balance (and why most people tell you it isn't realistic).
    - How billionaire Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz transformed the way he engages with difficult situations to reduce suffering.
    - Ways to thrive (and survive) the overwhelming amount of information you process every day.
    - How to achieve clarity on your purpose and assess your priorities.
    - And much more.

    This reference book, which I wrote for myself, has already changed my life. I certainly hope the same for you.

    I wish you luck as you forge your own path.

    All the best,

    Tim Ferriss

    Jenny: Tim Ferriss is a well-known writer and business leader. He has been called “a cross between Jack Welch and a Buddhist monk” byThe New York Times.

    Tim reminds you that you are the author of your own life, and it’s never too late to replace the stories you tell yourself and the world. It’s never too late to begin a new chapter, add a surprise twist, or change genres entirely.

    In his latest book, he asks over 100 people (of note) a series of carefully curated questions.

    One of my favorite answers to one of Tim’s questions is from Kyle Maynard, a best-selling author and martial arts athlete, known for becoming the first quadruple amputee to reach the summits of Mount Kilimanjaro without the aid of prosthetics.

    Tim Ferriss:

    “If you could have a gigantic billboard anywhere with anything on it, what would it say and why? Are there any quotes you think of often or live your life by?

    Klye Maynard:

    “The quote I’d put on that billboard belongs to my friend and former Navy SEAL, Richard Machowicz: ‘Not Dead, Can’t Quit.’”

    My other favorite answer to that question is: “I would not have a billboard, and I would take down every billboard that everybody else has put up.”

    The book’s entire collection of questions and answers is inspirational and instructive. Enjoy this book in spurts.
