Tiny Steps Make Big Steps
People laugh at the idea of doing 1 push-up a day.
Why bother doing just 1?
How much better is 1 compared to 0?
Not only for your pec muscles but for your mindset.
Doing a small task like a push-up isn't impressive by itself, but what if you did that every day for a month, 6 months, or a year?
That is being a Consistency King.
Now how could you apply this mindset to many areas of life?
Eat 1 healthy food item a day.
Meditate 1 minute a day.
Save/invest $1 a day.
Look up 1 new job posting a day.
Send 1 cold email a day.
Write a 1 sentence blog post a day.
Do 1 minute of research a day on a new career path.
Read a new Career Hackers post every day.
Over time these Tiny Steps will combine to form Big Major Steps.
And there's a bonus!
When you do just 1 small task, you've gotten through the hurdle of starting. So oftentimes, you'll WANT to do more than just 1 email or 1 push-up.
Make it easy to get things done by lowering the barrier to entry.
Your future self will thank you.
