I’ve always been one for big announcements and radical do-overs. I’ve made so many “from this day forward” type changes in my life, my friends and family hardly bat an eyelid any longer when I announce another one.
Unfortunately, it’s incredibly hard to stick with radical changes in the long term. I used to think: “Who’d even get out of bed for a tiny adjustment?”
In fact, a 1% shift could be all you need to experience true transformation. I’ll tell you why and how in the following.

Why 1% is huge
Imagine you were going to write a 200-page book and you haven’t been able to get yourself started. If you wrote the first two pages, wouldn’t that be incredible? It means you’re off, you got going, you’re finding your stride! Whenever you’re trying to get un-stuck or started with something, a 1% shift is all you need to gain momentum.
Are you trying to improve yourself or increase your knowledge? 1% at a time can quickly add up. Losing 1% of your body fat is amazing and can make all the difference. If you’re in business and work 1% more effectively every week, your results are going to skyrocket within a paltry few months.
Slow and steady…
You know the saying: “Slow and steady wins the race.” That’s what this principle is about, and it’s easy to put into practice.
- Determine what you’d like to change.
- Improve/add/complete 1%, no more.
- Whenever it’s appropriate, aim for the next 1%.
- Keep celebrating and rewarding yourself.
- Regularly look back and appreciate how far you’ve come.
Lasting change is best achieved in increments. If you do it by 1% shifts, you’ll easily leave behind all those folks who never get started because they can’t do it all at once.
