In a world full of chaos and uncertainty, there is always a new opportunity or adventure that awaits us. The good, the bad, and the ugly are what make up life and ultimately, it is up to us what we do with it.
James Clear is an author and entrepreneur and his New York Times best-selling novel, Atomic Habits, explores self-improvement strategies to help us improve our day-to-day lives, both personally and professionally.
James believes that the trick to building good habits is within a small step-by-step change, calling these atomic habits, instead of larger, drastic changes.
After his self-help book became a New York Times bestseller, James went on to do public speaking and created a weekly newsletter called 3-2-1 Thursday, which is sent to your email and proposes 3 ideas from James himself, 2 quotes from others, and 1 question for the reader.
Read on to inspire yourself to build positive habits:
1: “There are nearly endless opportunities to improve each day and finding them largely boils down to being curious. People who are better, in the end, are usually curious in the beginning.”
2: “It is better to start as a fool and learn from your mistakes than to fake being a genius and ignore your errors”
3:” if you don’t do it with consistency, it’s not a habit. It’s a hobby.”
4:” Growth is trading discomfort in the moment for satisfaction in the future. Decline is trading satisfaction in the moment for discomfit in the future.”
5: “Each day is a new battle to say yes to what matters and no to what doesn’t. Focus is a practice.”
