    JOIN US Tuesday, March 30th 4pm via Zoom for AFP's Book Club.
    We all have good habits and we all had bad habits - let's dig deeper by reading Atomic Habits by James Clear and let's discuss how “Success is the product of daily habits—not once-in-a-lifetime transformations.”

    An atomic habit is a regular practice or routine that is not only small and easy to do but is also the source of incredible power; a component of the system of compound growth. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.
    Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you’re willing to stick with them for years.
