Aaand we’re back with another wonderful Monday. This week I want to talk about a book I’ve been reading called “Atomic Habits” by James Clear.

It was recommended to me by a friend who thought it would go really well with these newsletters…and it totally does! I want to share some things I learned from reading this book. Today, I’m talking about getting 1 percent better.

“Habits are the compound interest of self improvement. Getting 1 percent better every day counts for a lot in the long-run.” — James Clear

I like this idea of getting 1 percent better everyday. It’s the little decisions we make each day, that can make us better and better. Sticking with positive habits each day will make you better and better.

Daily Challenge

As you make small decisions throughout the day today…think about getting 1 percent better.

For example, should I eat the delicious donut for breakfast or go for the fruit? Resistance tells you — go for the donut! But you know you’ll feel better throughout the day if you eat the fruit. Overcome resistance! Eat the fruit — you’ll be happy you did.

Another example…you normally snooze your alarm 3 times in the morning. Maybe tomorrow, you snooze 2 times. This is YOU becoming 1% better.

Making that one decision to stick with a healthy habit will help you make the right decision in the future. It all compounds! Remember: the small things add up to big, positive changes!
