Do you want to look, feel and move better than you ever have?
You know you’ll have to change a few things. You’ll probably need to eat clean (er), move more (or less), get more sleep, and you’ll need to be consistent.
What foods could you cut out that are holding you back? Is it bread, pizza, or chips? Are you one of the 5-a-day pop drinkers? Do you go for the cookies around 3:00 in the afternoon? Is it portions? Cut something out, then make sure to celebrate that small step and find another. Here’s a few small steps people have shared with me lately:
- I cut wheat out of my diet — I feel amazing.
- I’ve started to eat Paleo — I’ve never felt better.
- I’m eating more veggies.
- I’m learning to add healthy fats.
- I’m drinking more water.
- I’m listening to my body…working out less and getting better results.
- I’ve added strength training and feel like a new person.
- I’ve added mobility exercises and love how much better I move.
We’re told to think big.
Thinking big doesn’t mean you have to own big right away. Plan big, then chunk it down and execute.

Last week, Clifton Harski shared an article on his blog, “The Power of Small Wins,” by Daniel Coyle (The Talent Code). The article talks about how the best performers and teachers hunt for the little breakthroughs — the small, seemingly insignificant progressions that create steady daily progress…baby steps.
Baby steps don’t sound sexy, but they work.
What are some of the small steps you’ve done…or plan to do?
Have a Great Week!
