Recommendation

Personal development blogger Stephen Guise offers a self-improvement program that promises to be “too small to fail.” A “mini habit” is a positive behavior that you perform in its smallest component until it becomes second nature. An exercise program becomes one push-up; a reading goal becomes one sentence. The willpower you need to succeed falls to zero. Guise guarantees that repetition and repeated success can turn any mini habit into a new lifelong pattern. His concept is beautiful in its simplicity. getAbstract recommends Guise’s advice to anyone who wants to make a positive change, even if you read just one sentence at a sitting.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What elements constitute a mini habit,
  • How mini habits align with your natural tendencies and
  • How the use of mini habits can improve your life.

    The one point I'm impressed with is taking small steps requires tiny will power and it is on this little power that we rely on instead of motivation which rises and falls based on emotion.
