10 Minutes a Day is All it Takes

How are your New Year’s resolutions going?

As many as 60% of us set New Year’s resolutions each year (perhaps more so as we enter a new decade). But as few as 8% of us follow through and reach our goals*. If you set resolutions this year, how are they going? Regardless of whether you set resolutions, this week’s tip can support your professional and personal goals. As always, visit Building Bridges Leadership to learn more about how we can support you.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” – Lao Tzu

Think of a dream or a goal you’ve had for years – personal or professional – that hasn’t come to fruition. Does it feel big? Overwhelming? The term “kaizen” – taken in modern times to describe continuous improvement through small incremental change – is usually applied in a systems-wide business approach. It can equally apply to your own personal or professional goals, though. No matter how busy your day is, you can devote 10 minutes to making progress towards your goal. Set aside 10 minutes each day, and who knows where that will take you? (My own 10 minutes each day of children’s writing last year led to the launch of a story podcast for kids, Tales from the Moosiverse!)

Try this out, and let us know how it goes! We’d love to hear from you!
