Self help books can be understood when you are going through a similar situation in life. Then these books make sense and might even help you. But Atomic Habits is among a few that will hit the mark all the time. We are always looking forward to build good habits that will serve us right.


When I looked at the title of Atomic Habits, I thought it’s about building some powerful and big shot habits. But here the word Atomic refers to atoms. Small things, even unnoticeable changes or improvements can have an astounding effect.

Atomic Habits tells many easy and do-able tips to harness good habits in your daily routine. The writer divides this process in four parts.

  • Make it obvious.
  • Make it attractive.
  • Make it easy.
  • Make it satisfying.

Each step is discussed in detail in the Atomic Habits bywith examples and charts etc. with easy steps and relatable situations. While reading, I observed some tips that have actually helped me in establishing some habits. There is a tip that before making a purchase or exceeding a certain amount of money, wait for 24 hours. I have been practising this and it has reduced my impulsive online shopping. Similarly the writer suggests when developing a new habit, do it for 2 minutes only. I started my reading habit like this. I set a 30 minute maximum time. It worked great for me.


Atomic Habits offers many easy and small tips like this throughout. It is a feel good book as it made me think anybody can build good habits. The only thing need is consistency. This book is very engaging in manner including plenty of examples and visuals with weasy to understand terminology. The writer divided it into chapters. There is a summary at the end of each chapter to reinforce the concepts. You will learn a good amount of fruitful suggestions from this book. I recommend it.
