Do Less, get more? Really?
We live in an instant microwave minute world - multi tasking, driving while talking on your phone, drinking coffee and putting on makeup at the same time.
To achieve more, you have to do less.
We make it hard on ourselves by trying to change too much at one time. We try to makeover our bodies - new diet, fitness program - our finances, our relationships and our careers. Each of those changes is probably made up of 10-20 smaller behaviors that have to change. We set ourselves up to fail.
My experience working as a health coach and professional organizer (and lots of research too!) shows that people can typically change only one behavior at a time.
I'll repeat. Change works best when it's done in baby steps. One at a time.
As humans, we're impatient. We want everything now - or better yet, yesterday. That sounds reasonable, doesn't it? NO!!!!!
You see, doing more is the problem - especially when it comes to health. I've seen clients make massive changes across the board, only to collapse in a heap of exhaustion and frustration when life intervenes (as it inevitably does) and they fall off the horse.
Rapid, sweeping change doesn't last. Accept the fact that you can only change one behavior at a time, and you will succeed. Try to change more than one thing at a time, and you will fail. It's really that simple.
