As we all count down the days and hours to 2021 (seriously, can we be done with 2020 any sooner?!), many of us are zooming in on our new year’s resolutions and goals, and falling into the trap of I’m going to change all the things!

I’m going to…

Eat healthy

Start exercising

Lose weight

Spend less

Save more

Treat my spouse better

Make time for my kids

Volunteer more

Get angry less

Find greater balance

Make a new hire

Create a new offering

Service more clients

Be more profitable

Grow my business

While focusing on making a fresh start and your numerous ambitions are admirable, they’re also unrealistic. That’s because you’re just sabotaging your success when you commit to making too many changes in your life and business all at once. Doing so would make you even more overwhelmed, fail to give each change the time and attention it needs to become a habit, and wind up giving up on all of them.

If you really want to make sustainable, long-term changes in your life and business, slow and steady wins that race. Think tortoise and the hare. Trying to tackle every change you’re excited about as soon as that giant disco ball drops won’t serve you.

Choose to commit to making one change that will make a positive impact and give it all you’ve got until it becomes a new microhabit. Then, layer on another microhabit and another. That is the best way to make the changes you so desire in your life stick.

A great microhabit to start the new year off with is celebrating your wins, both big and small. Doing so will help you enjoy the journey of being a business owner through 2020 and beyond so you can be sustainable for the long haul.

In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, I dive right into creating lasting microhabits in the new year including celebrating your wins, so you can get 2021 off to a powerful start and achieve lasting success.
