Easing into Change with Micro-Commitments

goal chart


Let’s not sugar coat it – change is hard (for you, for me,  for all
of us.)

To be human is to resist change. Everyone wants something different, but part of them is pushing back – BIG TIME.

So how do we overcome this “built in” resistance when a client is staring down the barrel of a huge change they are trying to bring into their life?   We do it by chunking and subdividing that change in smaller, easier changes that you can deal with more directly and easily; micro-commitments.

Committing to accomplish your entire weight loss goal in one swoop is pretty daunting, but what if we look at just loosing 3 pounds in the next two weeks?  That sounds infinitely more do-able, doesn’t it.

Once the first of these micro-goals is accomplished, momentum is established and the next piece of the goal looks much more attainable.  Then you look at the next piece and decide a realistic time frame to get that completed.

Before you know it, you are at your goal.

When you are ready to start let us know, we’re here to help!
