How to make small, meaningful changes
Updated: Sep 23, 2022
Change is scary, isn't it?
Whenever I hear a client use the word "change", I immediately watch as their body language goes from confident to deflated.
Fact is: The thought of change can leave us feeling exhausted, intimidated and fearful, before the change has even taken place.
It's because of this that I want to change the way we view change (see what I did there?)
Let's say grad school is sabotaging your mental health and causing you to panic. Change your situation by taking a 10-minute break.
Let's say you've worked in marketing for five years and are realizing that you genuinely don’t enjoy it. Change your situation by exploring a new path.
Let's say you’re about to get promoted but you dread going to work every day. Change your situation by saying 3 words: No Thank You.
In each of these examples, change isn't this big, grand, or intimidating thing we know it to be by definition. Instead...
What if change were smaller words, decisions or moments that have the greatest opportunity to make a ripple effect?
Let's apply this thinking to our previous examples:
By taking a 10-minute break from schoolwork, you're building a habit of setting new, healthy boundaries.
By exploring new career interests, you're putting new, productive energy into the universe.
By saying No to promotions that won't serve you, you're opening yourself to new opportunities that will.
The moral of the story is this: Our time on earth is finite and how you spend your time matters. You always have permission to change course, and if you make a change that doesn't feel right, guess what? You have permission to change course again.
