Notes

7 powerful lessons from the book "Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results"

1. Start small. This is the core principle of the book. Don't overwhelm yourself with ambitious goals. Instead, begin with tiny, achievable actions that take minimal effort, like reading one page or doing one push-up. These micro-actions create momentum and make change feel enjoyable.

2. Make it easy. Design your mini-habits to be so effortless that you can't resist doing them. If reading feels daunting, start with just one paragraph. If exercise feels intimidating, do one jumping jack. Making habits frictionless increases the likelihood of success.

3. Celebrate every win. Even the smallest accomplishments deserve recognition. Celebrate each completed mini-habit, no matter how insignificant it seems. This reinforces positive behavior and keeps you motivated on your journey.

4. Consistency is key. The magic of mini-habits lies in their daily repetition. Even a tiny action done consistently will bring remarkable results over time. Aim for consistent progress, not occasional bursts of effort.

5. Don't obsess over perfection. Perfection is paralyzing. Focus on doing your mini-habit, not doing it perfectly. Small slip-ups are inevitable, so embrace them as learning opportunities and keep moving forward.

6. Make it fun. If your mini-habit feels like a chore, you're less likely to stick with it. Find ways to make it enjoyable. Listen to music while exercising, read something you love, or turn into a game.

7. Scale up gradually. Once your mini-habit becomes ingrained, slowly increase the difficulty or duration. If you do five squats every day, try six tomorrow. This incremental growth ensures sustainable progress and avoids burnout.
