As we all sit here on the 1st day of a new year pondering the tsunami of things we are going to change simply because the date has changed, just pause, then take the list of things to do and throw it away.
When we set ourselves these huge lists they are too much for the mind, they present too much change and therefore it’s risky, so the mind will sabotage. Also, willpower only lasts so long, so by the mid to end of January, most have given up.
Just pick something today that you can do, a small step towards changing one thing, and focus on that for a few weeks. Then pick another and so on.
Small, manageable and ‘easy’ daily steps take us forward and build like compound interest if we take the small step every day.
The tsunami of change always fails. Take a little step now.
