Atomic Habits Summary

3 Key Lessons from Atomic Habits

This section of the Atomic Habits summary presents key points from three of the core themes of the book.

Lesson 1: Small habits make a big difference

  • It is so easy to overestimate the importance of one defining moment and underestimate the value of making small improvements on a daily basis.
  • It doesn’t matter how successful or unsuccessful you are right now. What matters is whether your habits are putting you on the path toward success.
  • Focus on getting 1 percent better every day.

Lesson 2: Forget about setting goals. Focus on your system instead. 

  • Goals are about the results you want to achieve. Systems are about the processes that lead to those results.
  • If you’re having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn’t you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.
  • You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.
  • Atomic Habits presents a proven system for building good habits and breaking bad ones.

Lesson 3: Build identity-based habits

  • The key to building lasting habits is focusing on creating a new identity first. Your current behaviors are simply a reflection of your current identity. What you do now is a mirror image of the type of person you believe that you are (either consciously or subconsciously).
  • To change your behavior for good, you need to start believing new things about yourself. You need to build identity-based habits.

Changing your beliefs isn’t nearly as hard as you might think. There are two steps.

  1. Decide the type of person you want to be.
  2. Prove it to yourself with small wins.

Your identity emerges out of your habits. Every action is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.
