Making a change is really hard. Saving for a first house, getting in shape or learning the guitar are the kind of things we all want in our lives.
Deep down we know that they take dedication and time. But the human mind is not wired for the long term. The brain wants what it wants and it wants it now.
Taking one step at a time is powerful. Instead of focusing on the ultimate goal of $100,000 or losing 15 pounds, concentrate on the individual moments that a difference.
Break down the big changes you want and into simpler tasks. Then aim at those achievable targets. Change happens in the small decisions - like bringing in lunch or practicing the guitar for 20 minutes instead of watching cat videos. These little events add up.
String together a few of those little wins. It’s amazing how much momentum can be generated hitting simple small goals.
