The Key To Goal Reaching Success?
is all about a very simple (but super powerful) philosophy I use regularly in business and with clients to improve efficiency, create steady long-term growth and helps you to CRUSH your goals.
But the power of this philosophy goes way beyond business. It also can make a HUGE difference in living a better, healthier and more fulfilled life.
It’s fueled by one simple principle:
Do 1 percent better every day.
You might have heard of kaizen before, which is the idea of doing 1% better every single day. It’s all about small, continuous improvements. When you add them all up, they lead to mind-blowing changes.
What’s even more amazing is that the changes created this way actually “stick.” That’s because they didn’t require any major lifestyle overhauls. Instead, they were built up over a period of time, which means you learn to MANAGE and MAINTAIN them along the way.
And that’s EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT!
Let’s say you want to make changes to your exercise routine. Instead of changing everything about how you work out, what if you went for the small steps approach? By that I mean, gradually changing the things that are easiest for you to change?
---> You could add some stair walking to your daily routine and spend less time on the treadmill. You could add some light weights to your walking. Instead of killing yourself with 20 minutes of going hard, work in short intense bursts for 30-45 seconds and then rest.
Not all at once. Just one change at a time, over time. Can you see how before long, as you fold these new habits into your life, they will add up to a HUGE transformation in your life?!
There are lots of great books on the subject. One of the latest that breaks it all down with actionable tips is the bestseller Atomic Habits by James Clear.
It can be tempting to go for the quick fix – and it’s true that you may see some results in the short-term. But you’re not looking to yo-yo your way through life. You’re looking to make real change that LASTS.
So when it comes to changing your mindset and building new habits that stick, studies show that making smaller changes can be more helpful.
