Small Decisions With Big Implications
Personal development doesn’t have to always be an uphill battle. Believe it or not, there are small things you can do that produce far bigger results. It’s just about getting creative to identify these ideas so that you can leverage them for yourself, and accelerate your journey without much work.
For example, something I just realized and started doing last week is I started setting my alarm for 5:59 am instead of 6:00 am. What does that mean? Well, it means I’m waking up one minute earlier than I used to. That sounds pretty reasonable doesn’t it? It’s basically imperceptible. But then the outcome is far greater than the investment. Now, instead of being someone who wakes up at 6am, I can honestly say I’m someone who wakes up BEFORE 6am. The subtle shift in language helps me identify more as a go-getter, and sacrificing one minute of sleep has much bigger effects on my psychology.
Another idea - If you move your social media app icons to a new folder, with the intention that you’re doing it to be on social media less, then you have that decision in place to remind you throughout the day.
So that’s it! Make a small decision, that you know is best for you, and watch it generate results that are much bigger than the effort it takes to make the decision.
