Habit change is usually at the core of any personal or professional development. At its simplest level, it’s simply the process of changing what is “normal” behavior for yourself.
Leo Babauta shares his process for changing his normal:
- Start small
- Get started
- Enjoy the change
- Stick to the change
- Adjust again
The most important idea is to focus on making the smallest change possible. Trying to make too big of a change will cause your mind to rebel and the habit change to stall before it really gets going. By keeping it small you give yourself the constant progress that will result in a new habit being developed.
