What if you changed one small thing?
If you are looking for a great way to fail, just try to change everything all at once and see how it goes.
Whether you are trying to change your eating habits, improve organizational culture, or become a stronger leader, making widespread, wholesale changes all at once isn’t always an effective path to take.
Instead, where appropriate, you could try making small changes to the habits and routines that already exist as a way to make change more accessible and easier to institutionalize.
Instead of throwing away all the sugary treats in your pantry, you could start by relocating some items and limiting your consumption first. Instead of reading the next great leadership book and trying to implement every page on Monday morning, you could start by identifying one small behavior you want to address first.
Once that small change feels more comfortable, add another small change to the mix.
There is certainly a time and place for “taking the plunge” to adopt significant change at once, but I hope you will consider that it isn’t the only option available to you.
(If you recognize the need to embrace change differently, I’d love to chat with you about how I can help you get where you want to go with as little pain as possible.)
