3 Books Everyone Should Read About Creating Habits

Warning sign surrounded by SAME OLD arrowsOver the past 10 years, I have read about 20 books on the subject of habits.

Some were a waste of time and didn’t offer anything new. They could have been summarized in a blog post.

Instead, I encourage you to give these three a read.

They’re well worth the time.

Book #1: Atomic Habits

James Clear

I first read this book in 2019.

And here’s why you’ll love it:

Who hasn’t tried to quit something and failed? But Clear doesn’t blame you. He blames your lack of a system of small habits. I loved the stories and the actionable tips in this book, which is still topping Amazon charts.

Book #2: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

Stephen R. Covey

This book was recommended to me about 30 years ago. It was a revelation then. But I still find Covey’s insights spot-on today.

Here’s why I think you’ll love it:

These 7 habits relate to how we live every day. The choices we make about how we see things, how we react to challenges, and how we lead in a family or business. There’s a reason it’s sold 40 million copies.

Book #3: Essentialism

Greg McKeown

Finally, I think everyone should read this book.

And here’s why:

McKeown suggests that we don’t need to change our habits to be more productive. We need to be more selective about where we spend our time in the first place. To choose what’s essential in creating outcomes that matter to us. And taking back our time by ignoring everything else.
