Take a moment and think about what you could accomplish in a week, a month, or even a year if you created tiny habits today and kept building them up over time.

Trying to make massive changes all at once usually leads to burn out or failure. The solution is to take small baby steps with tiny habits toward a bigger goal is doable, sustainable, and a road to success.

So, the more frequently you lace up those sneakers and run, you’ll achieve superior cardiovascular health, you’ll be in enviable shape, and the better your chances of finishing a marathon. Likewise, the more frequently you drink alcohol, smoke tobacco, or partake in other detrimental habits, the more health problems you’ll encounter over time.

This same strategy can be applied to your business goals.


What is a Tiny Habit?

Tiny habits are simply those actions we take every single day without thinking about it. Brushing your teeth twice a day and washing your hands after using the bathroom are just instinctive because it’s what we were taught as kids and that action was reinforced by our parents and our teachers.

In the running example above, certainly you need much more time than two minutes to improve your health benefits; but adding an extra two minutes to your current running workout is negligible. Adding another two minutes the next week you probably still won’t notice.

Keep increasing your time by two minutes and soon enough you’ll be running longer distances.

Adding these small increments of time is sustainable and harmless whereas thinking you can run a 26.2-mile marathon when your current training is only 30-minutes long is simply foolish.


How to Choose Your New Habits

Having a goal in mind will lead you in the right direction and these tiny habits will build the processes necessary to reach those goals.

Business

Start using the Pomodoro technique to accomplish projects or meet deadlines. The Pomodoro Technique is as simple as using a kitchen timer to block off 25-minute increments where you focus on a task until the timer rings. Take a 5-minute break, and then reset the timer.

Some more ideas:

Health

Create a tiny habit to drink more water or to eat more produce daily. Plan ahead so you have produce and bottled water available. Within a few weeks, your body will be craving even more water and preparing produce with meals will become second nature.

Relationships

One tiny habit is to spend 10 minutes reconnecting with your spouse or partner after a long day of work. This simple act is even more important if you have children running to various activities or if one of you travels a lot. Do you have a regularly scheduled date night? Get in the habit of hiring a babysitter and putting your adult relationship first.

These are just a few ideas; you’re only limited by your own creativity and by what aspect of your life you need to focus on and want to improve.
