Imagine what you could accomplish if you became just 1% better every day. Read “Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones” and you could do just that.
The next Open Book Business Observer book club will focus on “Atomic Habits,” the worldwide bestseller by James Clear. Allegiant Private Advisors Principal, President and Chief Investment Officer Benjamin Jones will lead a discussion about the book 4 to 5 p.m. on April 7.
Jones manages assets for individuals, families and charitable organizations. He is responsible for establishing Sarasota-based Allegiant’s overall investment strategy, security selection and portfolio management. In 2009, Jones was a Business Observer 40 Under 40 honoree.
Jones says “Atomic Habits” has had a big impact on several aspects of his life. “Building habits and creating routines are some of the most important traits of successful people,” Jones tells Coffee Talk. “‘Atomic Habits’ showed me a proven system to achieve my goals and thrive as a business leader, husband, father and well-rounded person.”
The much-talked-about book helps readers develop a system for getting 1% better every day, break bad habits and make time for new habits. The concepts in the book are perhaps more relevant now than ever, given the challenges of recent months.
“With the pandemic altering our routines over the past year I cannot think of a better time to create sustainable habits that will set us up for success,” Jones says. “Please join me to explore the compound interest of self-improvement — our habits.”
This virtual gathering of Open Book is free and open to the public. Reading “Atomic Habits” is encouraged, but it’s not required to attend the event.
