    ATOMIC HABITS – What a great book! Irrespective it is a team to win a championship, an organization trying to redefine an industry or simply one who try to go out of smoking, to get fit or to reduce stress, this book will be of a GREAT HELP.

    What I have learned from this book:
    Professionals are the architects of their habits. Amateurs are the victims of their habits.

    Imagine two versions of yourself, 5 years into the future. What would your life be like if you continued to repeat your bad habits each day? What would life look like in five years if you stuck with good habits each day?

    From day to day, you may not recognize the effects of your habits.

    If you go to the gym for an hour today, you don’t expect your fitness to transform overnight. If you work late and ignore your partner and children today, you don’t expect your family to fall apart overnight.

    But, looking at the span of 5 years, it’s easy to see how our everyday habits add up to something more.

    Bad habits make time your enemy. Good habits make time your ally.

    The habits you repeat (or don’t repeat) every day largely determine your health, wealth, and happiness. Knowing how to change your habits means knowing how to confidently own and manage your days, focus on the behaviors that have the highest impact, and reverse-engineer the life you want.

    Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement.
    The Atomic Habits book will show you how and where to invest for the biggest gains.

    Give it a try to change your life for the better! Enjoy your reading time!

    For your best version,
    Grigore
