Have you noticed that for many of us tomorrow always seems like the best day to make changes? The good intentions of our evening hopes often get lost, somehow, in the night. When we wake up the next morning our motivation to complete the tasks have evaporated. At the end of the day we again find with the same task list that we stared at in the morning accompanied emotions that are hitting the frustration level. Just looking at the list is daunting and poof! there goes our energy to tackle any of the self assigned tasks. But if you are like many your hopes are high that- yes- tomorrow will be the day you begin. So goes the cycle of self disappointment and mounting annoyance.
Start small! If the goal is too large to accomplish in one time frame break it up into smaller tasks. A table that is overloaded with wrapping paper, mail piles or other odds and ends might exhaust you just looking at it. Why not 'tackle it tiny' by just putting five items away a day? In a few days the table will be cleared and you won't be overwhelmed by the task at hand.
The 'tackle it tiny' method can be employed in many areas. Perhaps you have become quite the couch potato and although you know you need to get your body moving it just doesn't happen. Tackle it tiny! Move for five minutes, increase a minute a day.......in a week you are exercising for a significant amount of minutes a day.
Consider using this method in reverse. What if you are trying to break a bad habit like playing online games or constantly checking Facebook? Shave off five minutes a day and add a small amount to the time each day; 'tackle it tiny' and you might be surprised how quickly you are doing less of one thing and replacing it with something that's a good habit.
Can you see how the 'tackle it tiny' method can benefit you?
