A little bit every day

· 1 minute read

When trying to jumpstart a new habit, the only thing that matters is making consistent progress.

It’s easy to get in your own way by setting the bar too high. Instead, set the bar as low as possible. Any progress at all is a good thing. What is the smallest unit of progress you can make?

  • Do one push up
  • Read one page
  • Write one sentence
  • Take one photo
  • Draw one doodle

Just do one every day.

If you can only do one per day for weeks or months, it’s more progress than doing nothing. Soon enough, you’ll have done more than you could have imagined.
