Starting the Year with Atomic Habits

Tiny changes can yield remarkable results.

It’s the first week of January, and everyone is making New Year’s resolutions. People are setting goals to lose weight, exercise more, read more, or make other plans to lead to happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives. At Saladmaster, we love this. Our mission is to use cooking to inspire people to eat better, live better, and achieve the life they desire. We spend a lot of time focused on what helps people reach these goals. The success or failure often comes down to the habits that people create for themselves. But how do we establish meaningful habits that last a lifetime?

Author James Clear may be the foremost expert on habits. His popular book Atomic Habits is one of the best researched, most thoughtful and thorough guides on the subject. His advice is simple: We have to think small when it comes to habits. Tiny changes can yield remarkable results.

Much like atoms, it’s helpful to think of habits as the units of our lives — (1) the small and core components, (2) the fundamental unit, and (3) a source of immense power.

In James Clear’s own words: “If you make changes that are small and easy to do, and layer them on top of each other, like units in a fundamental system, you can get powerful results.”



Thinking about small changes that can be maintained—not just for the next 30 or 60 days, but for a lifetime—is key. For example, cooking more at home can be a massive goal with numerous benefits. It may seem daunting to a lot of people. It might be better to start by getting in the habit of planning out your weekly trip to the grocery store with more items that would be useful for meals at home. Or maybe, you need to reorganize your kitchen so that the cookware is on display and easily accessible, instead of hidden away in a cabinet. You may want to start with the simplest recipes, once a week. These habits should not be seen as “a finish line to be crossed. They’re a lifestyle to be lived.”

Emily Schromm’s Meathead Hippie podcast features a great interview with James Clear from a few months ago. We hope it might inspire you to establish the kind of habits that can help you achieve the life you desire.
