Atomic Habits ~ Book of the Week

This week’s book of the week is Atomic Habits by James Clear. At first I had put off reading this book, because I thought that it might be very similar to The Power of Habits by Charles Duhigg.  I’m happy to tell you that it is very different. Think of it like this. If they were…
