How small changes make a big difference.

If you became 1 percent better every day. Then at the end of 1 year, you will become 37 times better.

But If you choose to get 1 percent worse each day. Then you will decline down to zero.

Habits compound in the same way as money multiplies. Results can't be noticed in a day, but things start getting visible in the long term.

Focus on Building Systems:

Setting goals limits your capability to certain things, whereas building a system keeps you going.

It brings a sustainable change in your life because here you don't care about the scoreboard, here you get better with time.

Goals are good for setting a direction, but systems help you make progress.

Your Habits Shape Your Identity:

Your behaviour reflects your identity. So your every action results from that belief system which developed.

Example: If anyone offers you alcohol, the first person replies, No thanks, I am trying to quit. While the second person replies: No thanks, I am not a smoker.

This small difference breaks the deep-rooted beliefs created by your identity. It makes habit breaking even easier for you.

The Habit Loop:

The Habit Loop comprises four important steps: Cue, Craving, Response, Reward.

  • Cue: Trigger (It can be external and internal)
  • Craving: Intense desire to do something.
  • Response: Your response to fulfill that desire.
  • Reward: The Reward you get after responding to the desire.

The continuation of this habit loop forms a deep-rooted habit.

Key Message: To get massive results in life, You have to start small. Start with that 1 percent.

All the lessons discussed are from the famous bestseller book “Atomic Habits” by James Clear.
