What would it look like for you to change just 1% of your daily habits, behaviors or thoughts?
What’s the impact of 1% change?
If you were flying an airplane and you flew off course by just 1%, there is a great chance you’d end up on another continent, let alone in the place you intended to be.
The same thing goes for your health habits. If you change just 1% of your behavior, it can add up to big results.
One of my favorite books of all time, The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, is about just that. There are no neutral choices in life. Every choice you make every day puts you on the curve toward achieving your goals and finding success or further from the goal.
The subtle thing about the 1% though is that you after you change just 1% of your behavior, you don’t notice any different results on day 1. You don’t notice anything on day 2. But keep up the discipline of your good 1% habit for 3 months, 6 months, a year….then you most definitely WILL see the results coming through
And it goes both ways….a positive 1% change will lead to positive results and a negative 1% change will lead to negative results.
But what does 1% change look like?
It could be sleeping 1% longer each night (just a few minutes), eating half the cookie instead of the entire thing, adding 1 minute of high intensity to the end of your workout, reading for the time equivalent to 1% of your day.
Once the 1% becomes a habit, you add another 1% change, and another… Soon you’ve changed your entire life by 1%.
You’re living a bigger, more vibrant, more inspired life! It’s the things that are easy to do but also easy not to do that make all the difference.
