"Atomic Habits"

Author:  James Clear

July 20, 2023

Presentation Description

Description of Topic/Presentation:

Back when we were young, we read all sorts of books for leisure, such as “Lord of the Rings”, “Harry Potter”, “A Wrinkle in Time”, etc. There was no requirement except that it was a good and entertaining read! However, things have changed now as adults – we also look for books that help us grow.  Especially, since we are also project managers (or aspiring project managers), we look for relevant books to help us become better project managers, better members of a team, and better leaders.  Let’s make the learning easier and have the material stick by taking part in the PMI-OC Book Club!

At this meeting, we will discuss the current book, “Atomic Habits” by James Clear.  We will explore the content and its themes and discuss possible actionable takeaways. 

“No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving--every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.”

Learning Objectives from the Meeting:

  1. Gain a new perspective from reading the book.
  2. Discuss the book with others.
  3. Gain more perspective through integrating the perspectives of others.
