The Importance of Small Steps
Last #transformatiiontuesday I explored how to create a SMART goal. I am helping you create a SMART goal in our Spring Check-ins, and some of you are surprised at the small steps I'm encouraging you to take to attain your goal.
Smaller steps allow us to "shrink the change." We all like the idea of a big sweeping change. However, implementing that change is so. damn. hard.
Small steps can help us create success, and you've heard me say it so many times, success creates motivation.
When you succeed at something you are much more likely to continue to WANT to work on it.
If we slip while working on small steps the results are not so disastrous. Simply start with your last successful step and keep going.
We use small steps to teach you physical things at the gym. How do you learn how to do a pull-up?
What big fat scary goal do you have? Can you write down a series of small steps that will help you work towards that goal? When we meet for our Spring Check-in we can come up with a SMART goal that will help you achieve your first few small steps. Share with me in the comments something you'd like to accomplish this year.
