Too Big, Too Small, or Just Right - Why Size Matters.
Recently, I was reflecting on a comment that Brittany Smith, a cognitive scientist with ADHD, made about habits that reinforced something I had already realised.
If your ‘habit chunks’ are too small, you don’t see any change and give up.
If your ‘habit chunks’ are too big, you get overwhelmed and discouraged.
If your ‘habit chunks’ are just right… you get results that keep your motivation high and find yourself kicking goals week after week!
I see this frequently with my coaching and training clients:
Right habit chunk size = SUCCESS
Wrong habit chunk size = FAILURE
So, how can you know if you’ve picked the appropriate chunk size for each of your habits?
