When it comes to habit change and self-improvement we often set ourselves up with large goals that inspire us, only to be dissuaded by the effort required to achieve them.
But what if we reverse-engineered the effort to make small steps every day?
What if I asked if you, could you achieve just 1% of that goal today you are aiming for?
For most goals, you’d probably say, moving 1% closer is totally possible.
Habit creation, like almost any achievement, can be best reached by incremental steps.
If you make small strides of 1% every day, in 1 year, you would be 37 times better off than where you are now!
A little momentum can add up and make doing the habit tomorrow even easier.
Meditate for 2 minutes a day the first week and increase this after you can become consistent.
Start running for 5-10 minutes a day, you don’t need to come out of the gate hot trying to run for 60 minutes.
Eat a small serving of vegetables for one meal, don’t try to change your entire diet all at once.
The real value to getting 1% better is the compounding effect this repetition has on your body and mind.
Don’t underestimate the importance of small changes repeated over time.
Here’s to getting a tiny bit better each day!
