Note: We recently launched of a seminar series, “Five Things You Must Know To Make Your Life Better.” Each week we’re taking a quick look at each of the five.
#2: Take Ridiculously Tiny Steps.
Small steps done regularly will always generate better results than large steps done intermittently.
In other words, it’s better to walk a block and really do it than to swear you’ll run a mile and never get around to it.
Avoid saying “I will try” or referring to your lapses in the third person (such as “the weight is just not coming off.”) If after saying, “I will…” you’re not sure you can or you really will, that step is probably too large.
Make it small enough so that you have no excuse to not do it.
