Micro Habits – 10X Performance
Getting fit, being more relaxed, being more organised, being more effective in our career, being a better mum/dad, being a better husband/wife…..these are all things we aspire to but so often we fall short or defeat ourselves and chose comfort over courage.
Although we are not often aware of it overwhelm can seep into areas of our life and create a sense of tension and fear which in turn leads to avoidance or taking the path of least resistance. We turn away, we don’t take the small steps needed to grow and we live sub-optimal lives as a consequence.
So what is the antidote? It is quite simple (not easy but simple), it is developing consistent positive micro habits…. micro habits are a way for people to begin moving forward and breaking the negative cycle. These small habits take discipline and commitment on a consistent basis but will bring about change in performance with the associated upturn in areas such as wellbeing, a sense of purpose, confidence, motivation and productivity.
These micro habits might seem small but measures such as restricting social media time, not checking messages first thing in the morning, making your boss aware that you have blocked out email time in the pursuit of being more productive and getting detailed on your diary can hugely reduce stress. When people change these small habits they see dramatic results in their ability to focus and get detailed on the work that will drive them and their teams forward.
This came up again for me while recently at a London meeting, so I thought I would video some thoughts………
