Atomic Habits

These are my takeaways from the book Atomic Habits by James Clear.

A slight change in your daily habits can guide your life to a very different destination.

Success is the product of daily habits, not once-in-a-lifetime transformations.

Success is not a linear progression. 

- The valley of disappointment: You often do not notice any results at the beginning. This is where most people fail and slip back into old habits.

- Patience is required

- With patience and continuous hard work, you will eventually start to see the results of your labor.

Goals and Systems

-Forget about goals, focus on systems

A system of atomic habits

- Atomic habits are small routines and behaviors that accumulate to produce incremental positive outcomes over time

3 layers of behavior change

-Changing outcomes: That is the result

-Changing your process

-Changing your identity: what you believe about yourself and others

* Most people focus on outcomes instead of identity,

- The goal isn't to learn a new instrument, it is to become a musician

- the goal isn't to run a marathon, it is to become a runner
