1% Better

Simple maths.

If we aim for an improvement of 1% each and every day, by the end of the year we will end up 37 times better than when we started.

Conversely, if we get 1% worse at sometime each day for a year, we will decline nearly down to zero.

According to James Clear, author of ‘Atomic Habits’, “what starts as a small win or a minor setback accumulates into something much more.

So how can we improve?

Whether we are approaching behavior change as an individual, a parent, a coach, or a leader, we should ask ourselves the same question:

“How can we design a world where it’s easy to do what’s right?”

Reset your environment so that the actions that matter most are also the actions that are easiest to do.

When you master habits of preparation, habits of execution become easy.

To create a good habit:

1. Make it obvious

2. Make it attractive

3. Make it easy

4. Make it satisfying

To break a bad habit:

1. Make it invisible

2. Make it unattractive

3. Make it difficult

4. Make it unsatisfying
