Hi, I’m Adam.

I’m the author of Atomic Habits, the creator of the Habits Academy, a weightlifter, and a travel photographer in over 30 countries. My writing is focused on how we can create better habits, make better decisions, and live better lives. I combine ideas from a wide range of disciplines including biology, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and more. I believe that you do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. My work has been covered by dozens of major media outlets including The New York Times, Entrepreneur, TIME, and on CBS This Morning. I don’t consider myself an expert and I don’t have all the answers, but I’m happy to share what I’ve learned so far. Want to hear more? Read my full story.
