IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Do this to ensure daily progress and motivation.
Because big goals can be demotivating: that burst of excitement at the beginning quickly wears off. Small wins keep your eyes on the process, not the result and help you see the progress you're making.
Procrastination boils down to getting started.
Small wins force you to get started, over and over again. Every day they will force you to get started on your new habit. And because it’s so small and so simple, you will.
To change your life, you need to change your habits. But developing habits is hard. Sometimes the change is too big and you lose your motivation.
So focus on micro changes. Aim to improve 1% every single day until it becomes a part of your routine.
