Small Move, Big Change

ebook
"The most useful guide to getting things done since Getting Things Done."
—Adam Grant, author of Give and Take
Learn how small behavioral changes can lead to major personal and professional self-improvement
Whether trying to lose weight, save money, get organized, or advance on the job, we're always setting goals and making resolutions, but rarely following through on them. According to longtime Wall Street technology strategist Caroline Arnold, the "big push" strategy of the New Year's resolution is designed to fail, because it broadly pits our limited willpower stores against an autopilot of entrenched behaviors and attitudes that is far more powerful. To change ourselves permanently, we need to focus our self-control on precise behavioral targets and overwhelm them. Small Move, Big Change is Arnold's guide to turning broad personal goals into meaningful and discrete behavioral changes that lead to permanent improvement. Providing scores of engaging real-world examples and new scientific findings, she shows us that while the traditional resolution promises rewards on a distant "someday," microresolutions work because they reward us today by instantly altering our routines and, ultimately, ourselves.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
