Over the past few months, in the WLN community, we’ve been digging into some important topics that have a big impact on our daily lives, and we’ll keep doing that as we move forward. Adding to those discussions, let’s take this month to talk about other stuff that affects us every day, issues that I regularly hear people saying they would like to improve:
Each week this month, starting next week, we’ll tackle 5 Quick Tips to make progress in each of these categories.
Today, let’s prepare for the rest of the month by talking about two key concepts:
1. Some improvement is better than none at all. We often overlook this (being the super-achieving types that we are). In other words, we tend to take an all-or-nothing approach to the above issues. For example, we think – I don’t have a free hour to go to the gym, so I guess I won’t get to work out today, when actually a quick walk or a 5-minute workout at home would be much better than no workout at all. We’re used to knocking it out of the park, but sometimes it’s ok to just hit the ball and get to first base, then build on that and make bigger improvements later.
2. It’s an experiment. We spend time in the WLN community talking about ways to approach a problem as well as tips for handling issues, and I’m always thrilled to hear when amazing women like you use those discussions to make their daily life better. However, we can never have a completely one-size-fits-all approach that works for everyone. Often, it’s a matter of trying a tip or idea, seeing if it works for you, and perhaps changing and adjusting it to fit your life. So, keep in mind as we move through this month, that some of the tips you’re reading may work well right away, while others will require a little reflection and adjustment on your part. The good news is, as we so often do in this community, we’re moving along in bite-sized pieces so you can make continuous improvement over time, and that adds up to big changes really quickly!
