One Small Change

A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Even the biggest achievements are composed of hundreds of small actions. Incorporating small, incremental changes to your habits gives you a much higher chance of succeeding than a sudden, huge change that jars your system and is more likely to demotivate you sooner. Want to learn a new language? Learn just two new words per day. Over time, these small, painless changes, which took so little effort to get started, will build up, and it will get easier to increase the load over time.
