Small actions lead to big results
|Marc Pelerin||Jan 24|
My resolution for this year is to do the small things - in running, at work, with my family. I’ve been working on doing 1% better every day/week/month and I know that even if they don’t show up in the “stats sheet”, I’m becoming a better version of myself.
Doing 1% better might be something as simple as making sure I’m giving full attention to my kids (and not being distracted by a device) or doing an extra set of glute warm ups prior to leaving for my run. Again, they are not big flashy things, but at the end, they add up.
Some 1% tasks that come to mind:
Extra/more reps of _____
Focusing on 1 task at a time
Making a to-do list with time expectations associated with each task
Being prepared for ______ rather than “winging” it
Friday’s Action Plan:
Find 1 thing you can do to be 1% better at.
