How to create positive habits that actually stick, to improve your life.

Goals Vs. Habits

Goals Vs. Habits

Do you have goals? Like real, written, actionable goals? Most people don’t.

How to Change Every Part of Your Life With Tiny Habits

I’ve always promoted the idea of starting small when creating new habits.

We all know that we can’t start a new workout routine by running 10 miles a day. That’s obvious. But even if you aren’t starting that big, you may be starting too big.

It’s usually not starting way too big that messes us up, it starting just a little bigger than we should have. Just big enough to stop the habit after a few days, weeks or months.

This is where tiny habits come in.

Bj Fogg, PhD, has started a habit revolution with tiny habits. And people are accomplishing amazing things by implementing them.

I’m going to show you how they work and how you can start implementing tiny habits today. Right now, actually…

This Quick Weekly Review Can Give You 10 Extra Hours Each Week

The idea of a weekly review was first made popular by David Allen.

He suggests that you cut out a block of time each week to review the previous week, and an additional block of time to plan the upcoming week.

I’ve learned a lot from his methods and I incorporate much of his teachings in my processes.

But the fact is, you don’t want a weekly review that takes several hours to complete. Because you won’t do it.

What 2015 Taught Me and What 2016 Looks Like for MoneyMiniBlog

Welcome to 2016!

I purposely waited until today to publish this to show how unimportant any specific date is. I’m not completely against setting a resolution at the beginning of the year, as long as you don’t get expect the changing of years to be some sort of miraculous time of new beginnings.
