Doing Less Than You Hoped

A special message for the all-or-nothing personalities out there!
Christi Hegstad March 4th, 2019

I try not to label myself much. But one label I often notice reappearing: my all-or-nothing personality.

I ran a marathon, then didn’t run for a year.

I went from not meditating to recently acknowledging my 140th consecutive day of meditation.

I often go all out – or else stay all in. (Click here for a recent discussion of this.)

Can you relate?

So Clear’s statement really struck me. In Atomic Habits he writes, “One push-up is better than not exercising. One minute of guitar practice is better than none at all. One minute of reading is better than never picking up a book.”

He makes a good point. A radical one to us all-or-nothing types, but a good one!

Inspired Action:

This week, take one teeny-tiny step in the direction of your dream.

Want to write your book this year? Write one page this week.

Want to grow your business? Make one more sales call.

Want to get in shape? Walk on the treadmill for one minute.

If you tend to hang out in the all-or-nothing world like me, this will not be the most comfortable activity … but growth typically occurs outside of our comfort zone!

What tiny action will you take this week? Share with us on Instagram or Facebook!

My clients have written books, grown businesses, hosted retreats, become strong leaders, and achieved many more meaningful dreams – one purposeful step at a time! I have an opening for one new client this month. Your first teeny-tiny step? Email us so we can talk about possibilities!
