Any change should be small

Leo Babauta, founder of Zen Habits, says that any change should be small; not a goal, but a tiny first step.

Turning changes into habits
  • Make the change tiny, end let it embed. Babauta suggests making one change every four to six weeks.
  • He also advises addressing one thing at a time, rather than trying to solve problems simultaneously.
