MJ’s Musings: Atomic Habits

The speaker at a recent meeting recommended the book Atomic Habits. I put the Kindle version on hold at the library. When it finally came in, I slogged my way through it.

It covered a lot of the same material as the Julia Cameron classic, The Artist’s Way. Many of the suggestions are things I incorporated into my life years ago. Other things were tricks I’ve tried and found don’t work well for me.

I don’t believe the myth that it takes 21 days to form a habit.

Maybe other people, who haven’t read as many time-management books as I have would get more out of this newest bible.  In the meantime, I’ll continue to grab my affirmation beads every morning and remind myself: “I am an author. Writing is the best part of my day.”
