For this blog post you will need a pen and paper.
What small step can you take to improve your health and fitness?
Or, if you're a martial artist or fighter, what small step can you take to make your skill better?
Write it down - writing something down increases the likelihood that you will do it.
Don't make it ambitious - The Tao Te Ching says: "With expectation, One will always perceive the boundary"
Make sure it's simple and doable.
If it isn't then think again.
Schedule this small step into your diary for the whole month.
Make a note of where you are now so that you will be able to see the improvement you've made.
Keep acting on this small step. (This one step is something you're going to build on later on and I'll explain how in next month's blog post. )
The famous basketball coach, John Wooden says, "When you improve a little every day, eventually big things occur. Don't look for the big quick improvement. Seek the small improvement one day at a time... and eventually a big gain is made."
The Tao Te Ching says, "A Journey Of A Thousand Miles Starts With A Single Step."
Trust in their wisdom. Trust in this small step. Don't doubt it. Just Do It.
