Shawn Blanc on making small changes instead of big New Year’s resolutions:
I do not overhaul my life on January first. Instead, I pick a few things that I know I can stick with. The compounding impact of small routines done regularly is so much more powerful than that one giant event.
I started using Streaks on January 1st and put it on my home screen. I’ve added just a few tasks to it so far — fairly easy tasks, but things I want to do every day — and already it has made a big difference.
