Atomic Habits

What is an Atomic Habit?

An Atomic Habit is a little habit that is part of a larger system. Just as atoms are the building blocks of molecules, Atomic Habits are the building blocks of remarkable results.

— James Clear

Do you want better results?

Do not set goals! Instead, focus on your system.

You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.

— James Clear

Small habits produce continual self-improvement. One small positive change every day contributes to a lot in the future. 

How will you get 1% better each day?


Celebrate the small wins!



  • An extremely small amount of a thing; the single irreducible unit of a larger system.
  • The source of immense energy or power.


  • A routine or practice performed regularly; an automatic response to a specific situation.
