“The key to success whether you are trying to lose weight, break a bad habit or save money on your grocery bill is to consistently apply small changes over time.”
p. 27 Save More, Clip Less
One way I incorporate this principle of small changes over time is to choose a weekly project to work on ten minutes a day. Knowing it’s only ten minutes helps me to get started even if the project seems overwhelming at first. Working on the goal daily, helps me to develop discipline (I know–it’s an ugly word!) in my life.
This week I’ll be spending ten minutes every night doing my night time routine.
Even though I know the benefits of starting my day the night before (read more here), in the past few weeks I have really neglected this principle in my life. I have been staying up too late which means the next day I sleep later than I should and for the entire day I feel behind on everything.
This week I’m going to stop whatever I am doing at ten minutes before ten (9:50 p.m.) and start getting ready for bed.
Would you like to join me in a ten minute a day project this week?
