“Change on a Large Scale Happens in Small Increments” – Jacob Marshall
As we get closer to the start of 2010 and the dreaded “New Year’s Resolution” phase, it’s so important to think on a smaller scale, rather than set big goals right off the bat. Too many people say they’re going to lose 20 lbs or workout 5 days a week, when they currently never workout. That’s a recipe for failure every time.
Keep it simple and small, then you can build on it. Instead of 5 days a week, start at 2 (if you were at zero), then after a couple weeks of success set another goal for 3 days/week. Then, you can build from there. This gives you little successes along the way and helps you build confidence.
As for now, enjoy the Holiday Season. Spend time with friends and family and disengage from your “work” as much as possible. You owe it to yourself and you’ll come back firing on all cylinders in 2010.
All the best. I thank you for all the kind words on the blog. I’m really excited about 2010 and taking the next step on this journey with you. Please don’t hesitate to send me any thoughts or suggestions on how I can make this better.
God Bless and Be Well,
