Many of us set goals and work towards them with initial fervor only to be overwhelmed and defeated because the task seems too big and overwhelming to possibly complete it.
But when we focus on small daily actions, we set the stage and take the actions necessary to draw us closer to our objectives in a way that is not gargantuan in scope.
Say your goal is to lose weight…
Rather than taking on an entirely new and complex eating strategy, just commit to no food after 7:30 pm.
If your goal is to increase your business network, or increase sales a certain percentage over prior year…
Commit to reaching out to 1 or 2 new prospects each day - Monday through Friday.
If you are committing to get a better grip of your personal finances and get out of debt…
Sign up to receive a daily balance notification from your bank. View and make sure you are staying on track...it takes less than 60 seconds each day, but helps to reinforce the fact that you are being proactive rather than reactive with your money and cash flow.
As Kristin Wong of Lifehacker references …
“Neuroscience researcher Alex Corb studies the link between happiness, control and decision-making. In his book, The Upward Spiral, Corb explains that a "good enough" decision activates the brain's dorsolateral prefrontal area, which can make you feel a sense of control.
When trying to make a decision, we tend to focus on the relative drawbacks of each option, which often makes every decision seem less appealing. Nor do we usually have enough information to feel confident in the decision the world just too complex. Trying for the best, instead of good enough, brings too much emotional ventromedial prefrontal activity into the decision-making process. In contrast, recognizing that good enough is good enough activates more dorsolateral prefrontal areas which helps you feel more in control.
In simple terms, worrying too much about making the right decision can backfire and stress you out. On the other hand, you feel empowered when you make a decision without worrying whether it's the best.
That's precisely why small actions pack such a punch.”
