Switch By Chip Heath

Switch is a dated, broader version of Atomic Habits By James Clear, presenting essentially the same main point—change begins with small incremental steps.




• Failing is often the best way to learn, and because of that, early failure is a kind of necessary investment.

• Even in failure there is success. These flashes of success— these bright spots— can illuminate the roadmap for action and spark the hope that change is possible

• What’s working, and how can we do more of it?” Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Yet, in the real world, this obvious question is almost never asked. Instead, the question we ask is more problem focused: “What’s broken, and how do we fix it?

• Change is easier when you know where you’re going and why it’s worth it.

• What looks like resistance is often a lack of clarity. What looks like laziness is often exhaustion. What looks like a people problem as often as situational problem.

• The error lies in our inclination to attribute people’s behavior to the way they are rather than to the situation they are in.

• “Don’t look for the quick, big improvement. Seek the small improvement one day at a time. That’s the only way it happens— and when it happens, it lasts.” -John Wooden, Former UCLA Coach
