Who doesn’t wish they could follow through on their New Years resolutions? Or follow through any self-improvement goal for that matter? I don’t know what’s worse, the “falling off the wagon” feeling or the “failed once again” feeling; but this year I decided I don’t want to feel either.
The Compound Effect is a book that showed me why I was falling off the wagon, and it has nothing to do with my goals per se, it was how I was setting my goals. You could say that I usually set myself up for failure by making huge lifestyle changes that are absolutely unsustainable (well, in the manner I was approaching them at least), and in this book, Darren Hardy walks you through the steps of making small changes today, that create big changes in the future.
If you are anything like me, I hate waiting, I don’t have patience, especially in things that have to do with self-improvement, but somehow the advice in this book makes sense (it’s nothing you haven’t heard before, but the way Hardy writes it makes so much more sense).
It’s been two weeks since New Year’s, and I am very happy to say that I still have the drive to make the changes I want. Usually by this time I started drifting off my plan, but small changes are honestly not that big of a deal, I actually forget I’m doing them! I feel confident that this somehow will work this time around, and I want it to work for you too. so I’m giving away 5 copies to 5 of our readers! Happy self-improving 🙂
