You probably know the statistic–only 8% of people who adopt a New Year’s Resolution reach their goal. So this year, instead of a New Year’s Resolution, adopt a mini habit! And 2018 is special because we will all do it together. Here!
What’s a mini habit? A mini habit is a very small positive behavior that you force yourself to do everyday. What’s my mini habit? I will learn one new Greek word per day!
It is “too small to fail” and ironically, that makes it an extremely powerful tool for positive habit building. The idea is you have no choice but to believe in yourself when you are constantly moving forward. What are some examples of mini habits?
- do one push up per day
- meditate for one minute per day
- eat one vegetable per day
- drink one glass of water per day
- read one page of a book a day
- write 50 words per day
- learn one new word of a new language per day.
You get the idea…You can learn more about it from the book Mini-Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results by Stephen Guice. He transformed his life by committing to do one push up per day. And you. can. too.
You can enter your mini habit goal in this spreadsheet, and we will all log in each day to say we did it and to enter any notes. Nice!
