We wrote the vision, set our goals, have an action plan, and are now executing. Here’s how to stay disciplined in achieving your goals based on Atomic Habits by James Clear.
Small Changes in Your Space, Big Impact on Choices Decision-making can sometimes feel overwhelming, or you may need help figuring out where to start. Desmond Tutu once said, “There is only one way to eat an elephant: a bite at a time.” Break down choices into smaller steps to reduce feeling overwhelmed and visualize tackling your goals one step at a time.
The Two-Minute Trick for Better Decision-Making In "Atomic Habits," James Clear introduces the 2-minute rule: any habit (action) can be started by taking a small action that takes less than two minutes. Doing this allows us to make decisions more quickly and build our decision-making muscle to continue making intentional and thought-out choices.
Crafting a Supportive Environment for Your Choices Shape your environment to have your back in decision-making. Just like arranging your study space for productivity, optimize your surroundings to nudge you toward better choices. This can be putting your phone on do not disturb or working in a productive environment like an office space or a Starbucks rather than in bed. This helps you to eliminate distractions and ultimately make clearer decisions.
