The Power of Tiny Habits
Improving 1% every day leads to dramatic results. Just a 1% increase every day leads to a 37x improvement in just one year. James writes, “Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement” and “You are what you repeat”.
To achieve our 2019 goals, we must establish new “good” habits that are supported by a new system. These small habits will produce big results over time. Warning: we might not see significant results right away and get discouraged. Remember that small changes often appear to make little difference. Progress is not an overnight event. However, if we can stick to it the snowball will become a giant snow boulder. Focus on the process, not on the goals.
“Time magnifies the margin between success and failure. It will multiply whatever you feed it. Good habits make time your ally. Bad habits make time your enemy.”
The key is to develop systems that will help us maintain tiny habits daily that will eventually help us achieve our goals.
