Atomic Habits

By James Clear

book to read in 2021

An easy and proven way to build good habits and break the bad ones.

This book talks about the effect of how tiny changes impact remarkably in our life if followed regularly. In our life, if we do small changes on a consistent basis. It can have a big impact, but these changes are often unnoticed or ignored because it does not impact us immediately.

Formation of habit for which we need like the environment, intention to implement, focus on making the tasks easy, and break it into small parts.


The small changes which become our behaviour or habits are developed because of 4 things:

1.) Cue which means trigger to act like if we see fire we initially try to stay away just try to put it off.

2.) Craving means what is making you do that in this case of the trigger which in the case of fire is to get rid of this alarming situation.

3.) A response which is what we do in case of a trigger like for setting off fire we may use a fire extinguisher.

4.) The reward is the end goal once the response is taken here, in the case of fire the feeling of relief and comfort is the end feeling or reward.

This book is a really good book as it not only helps to know more about forming habits, but all things are explained in an easier way. Check the book – click here

By Stephen R. Covey

books to read in 2021

This book is one of my favourite books as this is something that really tells you the real way of effectiveness. The concept of the paradigm shift was introduced by the author and this book also helps to understand that there can be a different perspective of looking at things by different people.

This also talks about three stages of increasing maturity – dependence, independence, and interdependence called the maturity continuum.

The seven habits explained in this book are

  1. Be proactive

  2. Begin with the end in mind

  3. First thing first

  4. Think win-win

  5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood

  6. Synergize

  7. Sharpen the saw- growth

There are 4 dimensions in which a person should keep on enhancing which are

Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Social for overall growth.

We need to work in all aspects of better working and effectiveness.

I am a total believer of these all habits and I try to inculcate all this in me as much as possible. Whenever I feel like I just take the book and start reading the book. If you need consulting on how to develop this habit you can check the details at www.anjujindal.comYou can check the book here.
