One Percent Changes

A person I appreciate says this: If you want to make changes in your health, in your personal rhythms, in your structure, in your work, and in your life, start with one thing, and it can be small. She says, “Make 1% changes, and them it compound.”

When we make small shifts, we are likely to stick with them, and once they’ve become solid habits, we can add another “1% change.”

Most of our lives do not divide precisely into percentages, but I’ll share that three weeks ago, or so, I moved from 7 hours of sleep to 8 hours consistently. That was a 12.5% change nightly. That feels great, and it’s a very solid change to build upon.

Any 1% changes you want to make?
