Read: Atomic Habits

The Man bought (and read) the book Atomic Habits by James Clear a while ago. When I was searching for a new book to read, I found this title in our digital library and asked him whether it was worth my time. He said yes, so I read it this weekend.

The main message in the book is to create small habits that make you better 1% a day. Accumulative, over the course of a year for instance, you’ve become a lot better. Clear describes in his book how you can create such atomic habits.

One of the most helpful elements of Clear’s method for me is to shift your focus from setting big goals (I want to write a book) to daily routines that can lead to such big goals (I write one page every day). I’m now figuring out what tiny habits I want to create that serve me identity best.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to turn (small) bad habits into good habits, whether this is a personal goal (loos weight) or a business goal (get more clients).

Read: The Midnight Library

The first book I’ve read this year. Or rather, finished reading this year. I loved reading it. It’s a book by Matt Haig. Although a bestselling author, I didn’t read any of his other books, so this was my first acquaintance with his writing style. I can tell he writes for children as well as his prose is very accessible.

The central idea of this book is what happens if you are able to live the infinite number of lives you could have lived if you’d made different choices in your life. This is what happens to the main character of the book, a woman called Nora. In her mid-thirties she feels too miserable to live on and ends up in such a space. She gets the opportunity to try on different versions of her life.

The finale of the book carries a message across that there is no such thing as a perfect life. Anyone who feels the burden of missed opportunities and wrong decisions in their life could be inspired by this book. At least I was. Due to its accessible writing style I would even recommend it to teenagers aged sixteen and up.
