Atomic Workflows

Clear's insight with Atomic Habits also offers a solution to orchestrating collections of habits in workflows. Let's call this approach "atomic workflows".

The process looks something like this:

  1. Enumerate all the habits that compose a workflow.
  2. Identify the overarching purpose of that workflow.
  3. Reduce to the minimum set of habits that achieves that purpose.
  4. Reduce those habits to the minimum set of actions that accomplish each habit's subgoal.
  5. Progressively expand these habits. (I.e.: Atomic Habits).
  6. Introduce new habits iteratively until you've reached the full workflow.
