The importance of small steps
Smaller goals, according to Deakin University’s Melissa Weinberg, help us to eliminate procrastination, clear our road to achievement, and boost motivation and productivity. It’s more difficult to get started and maintain our efforts if we don’t take tiny moves.
We can minimise decision fatigue by taking little moves, which reduces our impact. Small steps also help us better manage our cognitive load, giving us more headspace to deal with all of our other ideas and objectives. Finally, taking tiny measures can assist us in better managing distraction.
Surprisingly, tiny changes can have a significant impact. Here’s how to do it:
Small steps get us started
We can get started by focusing on little steps. They aren’t overwhelming, after all. Then inertia kicks in, and once we’re moving, it’s much easier to keep going.
Progress = Momentum
Small steps build important early momentum. And if you want your team to succeed, you need to keep this momentum going. The ability to make significant progress on critical goals is one of the most common characteristics of high-performance teams.
Success breeds success
Small actions add up to big rewards, just like compound interest. It’s easier to keep going once we get started and see some early results. According to Leonard A. Schlesinger, author of Just Start, these tiny steps serve to reduce risk (while also improving your chances of success). Each step allows you to learn and change while remaining confident that no single action will bankrupt you or damage the goodwill you’ve built.
Consistency makes work easier
Small steps assist us form useful habits that aid in the achievement of larger goals. “If you want to make an easy job appear pretty hard, simply keep putting it off,” as Olin Miller wisely put it.
The less resistance we have to multitasking’s detrimental habit, the more success we’ll have with each small move.
Small steps aren’t overwhelming, so they are more likely to stick
Small steps are doable and are aimed to avoid feeling overpowering. They’re also easier to fit into the frantic, over-scheduled days that most individuals deal with on a daily basis.
