About The Book
Title: Atomic Habits
Authors: James Clear
Publication Date: 2018
Description: 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.
“James Clear has spent years honing the art and studying the science of habits. This engaging, hands-on book is the guide you need to break bad routines and make good ones.”
New York Times best-selling author of Originals, Give and Take, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg
About the ICF NYC Breakfast and Book Club
Meetings will be held consistently on the second Monday of each month at 8 AM New York time (except where may be otherwise indicated). Attendance at every meeting is not necessary. You may participate based upon your preference for the book. The intended purpose of this offering is to broaden and deepen our knowledge of current practices in the coaching profession and in the business world.
Please register early! If registration is low, or non-existent, for any specific book, we will revisit the selection and float a poll to the membership to select a replacement book. We therefore encourage participants to register early for meetings so that we may assess interest at an early stage.
Please be sure to read at least portions of the book so that meaning, intent and application may be discussed with depth.
As with any virtual call, please be prepared to have your video and audio on, with limited distraction. Turn off all notifications.
Come in your pajamas! We don’t care about how you look, only the intellectual contribution you bring.
