When you think back over the course of your life, where you are today is probably the result of a handful of key decisions.
With your career, relationships, health and wellbeing, or any other area of your life.
You can trace your progress back to these big decisions, where you adjusted your sails and started to move in a new direction.
But simply adjusting your sails isn’t enough – to create movement and change you need WIND.
And this ‘wind’ comes from the dozens of small decisions you make every day, in the direction of your new goal.
Let’s face it, we can all sit here and decide that we’re going to lose weight or get fit.
But without corresponding action nothing changes.
Deciding to have a healthy breakfast.
Deciding to drink a glass of water with your meals.
Deciding to go for a walk at lunchtime.
Deciding to switch off Netflix and go to bed half an hour earlier.
Deciding to spend 5 minutes a day meditating.
None of these decisions by themselves will have a significant long term impact.
But make enough of them, consistently and for long enough, they will carry you to where you want to go.
It’s the big courageous decisions that we tend to remember, but it’s the small day to day actions that result in progress.
