Join AVM members to discuss the book ‘Atomic Habits’, by James Clear.
Transform your life with tiny changes in behaviour, starting now.
People think that when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions: doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes early, or holding a single short phone call.
He calls them atomic habits.
In this ground-breaking book, Clears reveals exactly how these minuscule changes can grow into such life-altering outcomes. He uncovers a handful of simple life hacks (the forgotten art of Habit Stacking, the unexpected power of the Two Minute Rule, or the trick to entering the Goldilocks Zone), and delves into cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience to explain why they matter. Along the way, he tells inspiring stories of Olympic gold medalists, leading CEOs, and distinguished scientists who have used the science of tiny habits to stay productive, motivated, and happy.
These small changes will have a revolutionary effect on your career, your relationships, and your life.
Read the book or watch this 8-minute TED Talk by James Clear.
The aim of AVM’s book club is to create an opportunity to read and discuss books with other members. We generally choose books that are not necessarily related to volunteer management, but challenge our thinking, and help us think outside the norm.
AVM’s book club is for you if you’re looking to find the motivation and accountability it sometimes takes to read more, and also gain a deeper insight through discussion with fellow AVM members.
You are not required to have read all – or even any – of book club books to come to a meeting. In fact, book club is a chance to find out more about a book before deciding to read it.
This event will not be recorded.
