Recently, I bought Atomic Habits written by James Clear a day ago. It is one of the best-selling books with over 3 Million Copies Sold. The book talks about how habits at the atomic level can induce a huge change. I have not yet read the book but I know what the book is all about.
I read this book at the rate of 80 minutes per day. I completed three chapters in one day. The book is perfect with lucid English. The sentences are easy to understand and reader-friendly.
This article will be all about what I have discovered after reading the first chapter of the book. Get an exciting read!
The first chapter talks about the surprising power of atomic habits. Here it mainly focuses on how powerful atomic habits are. And how much they can impact our greater habits.
The author gave a math calculation of how getting better or worse daily can affect a person. Accordingly, if a person gets 1 percent better each day for one year, that person will end up 37 times better at the end of the year. Conversely, if a person gets 1 percent worse each day for one year, that person will decline nearly down to zero.
In the same chapter, the author wrote about self-improvement indicating that habits are the compound interest of self-improvement. In the same way, money multiplies through compound interest, the effect of habits multiplies as you repeat them.
Here is the summary of the Chapter.
- Habits are a double edge sword. They can work for you is against you, which is why understanding the details is essential.
- Small changes often appear to make no difference until you cross a critical threshold. The most powerful outcomes of any compounding proceed are delayed. You need to be patient.
- If you want better results, then forget about setting goals. Focus on your system instead.
- You don’t rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your system.
I will soon publish the summary for the next chapters. Subscribe to my blog and become the first one to read the next exciting summary.
