Atomic Habits

by James Clear

A well written book on how to get good habits to stick and bad habits to fade away. Very entertaining with well chosen examples, including personal ones.

The book is based around the author's four laws for building good habits:

  1. Make it obvious
  2. Make it attractive
  3. Make it easy
  4. Make it satisfying

(I'm sure there's acronym to be found there somehow: OAES πŸ˜ƒ)

If you don't want to read the whole book then simply following guidelines in the final two tables on creating good habits and breaking bad ones is probably enough. Additionally you could read the summary at the end of each chapter. Which is not to say you shouldn't read the whole book. It's definitely worth reading. Just that the book does a great job of efficiently summarising the key points to building good habits.
