Happy New Year!
Best wishes to you, your family and your friends! And though I’ve written with exclamation marks, I don’t necessarily mean the ball dropping, fireworks exploding, everyone screaming, kissing your lover on the lips “Happy New Years!” (don’t get me wrong, I do wish you that one and I hope your Eve was unforgettable). The Happy New Year I wish you is about…
What is your resolution? What is it you want to do/want to stop doing? People are hoping for many things this 2017. They chew nicotine gum, start gym memberships, and make new commitments. Statistics, however, tell us that after a few weeks this new enthusiasm fades away and we are left with a bitter taste in our mouths (especially if we are chewing nicotine gum).
So what’s the key to success? How come we can’t quit drinking, smoking, eating garbage food, and start running 5 miles a day, practicing our instruments 2 hours, praying 1 hour a day??? As you read that last sentence I’m sure a 5-hour energy commercial or something else equally ridiculous went through your mind and that’s the point. You can’t do everything all at once! Introducing, ‘The Power of Less’…
If you were to introduce just one new healthy habit into your life, you would have an 80% success rate. A new habit can take 21-28 days to become a habit. If you were to introduce 2 new habits at the same time your chances drop significantly (less than 35 percent) and 3 at a time the stats fall crashing to the floor (less than 5 percent).
This is why I believe in the power of habit-based coaching!
The idea behind sustainable change is to pick a new habit/goal to accomplish and do just that one goal for the next 2-3 weeks before introducing a new one. Make it so easy that you can’t fail. Most will try to take on the world, will fail, and then say, ‘Well, there’s always next year.’ Don’t wait another year or another day to become the awesome person you were created to be. Implement small changes, find some accountability, and do something today.
The Power of Less will show you how to:
- Break any goal down into manageable tasks
- Focus on only a few tasks at a time
- Create new and productive habits
- Hone your focus
- Increase your efficiency
By setting limits for yourself and making the most of the resources you already have, you’ll finally be able work less, work smarter, and focus on living the life that you deserve.
