Baby Steps

Yesterday, I had a conversation about building better habits.

The question we proceeded from was, “What’s the smallest possible action you could take toward your goal?”

Want to run a marathon? Start by walking to the mailbox.

Ditto a big task like a job search: “get a great new role” isn’t a single checklist item, but many, many emails and phone calls and coffees.

Just a few generous, intentional, purposeful actions a day — every day — can compound faster and more powerfully than you might think.
