Gooooood Morning Vietnam! Sorry I really had the urge to do that today, been watching Supernatural recently and that film quote is referenced in one of the episodes, yeah anyway on to today’s topic…. Making small changes for big improvements.
That’s quite a good title isn’t it? I actually impressed myself when I thought of that one but it’s very accurate, making small adjustments and changes can lead to a big improvement overall. This is true for many, many things in life. For example if you are training trying to build muscle, little things like adjusting your form can make a huge difference in gains in the long term.
Take me for example, I have recently bought some ‘Nutri Greens Plus’ powder from MyProtein (Disclaimer: Not sponsored, I have just been recommended them in the past), this stuff contains 35 superfood extracts and is a natural source of 3 essential vitamins. I did this because I want to improve my health and make an effort to be healthier, not to mention I have heard people say that these green powders make them feel like they function better and can think more clearly, this is why I will soon be taking some multi-vitamins and fish oil tablets as well. It is small changes like these that build up and make massive differences over time.
I’m not against going all out and completely changing your life whether it be in fitness or health or business but it is much easier and you much more likely to continue with something if you make small changes at a time. These little things add up, let’s say you would like to learn how to do something like, I don’t know, let’s say you want to learn how to speak french, you wouldn’t go buy a language learning course and try to learn the whole thing in one day, it would be too much for you brain to handle, you would do a little bit every day till it sunk in.
Maybe you want to write a book but you always put it off because you can’t be bothered or seem to not find the time, if you get up and spend 20/30 minutes writing while you are eating your breakfast or spend half an hour writing before you go to bed or on your lunch break at work, come a few weeks/months down the line, you will have written your book.
A lot of the time it is all about taking baby steps or just doing a little bit hear and there, this is also great if you want to get a big task done, just add in into your daily regimen and spend a little bit of time doing it every single day. Even for fitness, if you want to get more fit, just go for a brisk walk for 20 mins every day, maybe a bit longer depending on your current fitness level, but little things like this all add up to make a big difference in the long term.
Anyway I should probably end that one there before I start to bore you, so I shall leave you with this:
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step” – Martin Luther King Jr.
