Making small changes key to increased productivity

Listen to this story

From the bloggers at Trello:

There’s a reason so many New Year resolutions fail — they’re just way too ambitious. Trying to make a bunch of large, sweeping life changes all at once (Run a marathon! Lose 50 lbs! Quit your job and start your own company!) can feel completely overwhelming.

And even if you start off with the best intentions, by the time February rolls around you’re exhausted, burned out, and ready to throw in the towel.

So, big resolutions don’t work for most people—but what about small resolutions? Can making small, sustainable changes make a big impact in your productivity, your happiness, and your life?

Trello spoke to Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of Better Than Before: What I Learned About Making and Breaking Habits and The Happiness Project to get her insights into how small changes can create big results. Based on the conversation, they came up with 12 small, manageable changes you can make in 2019 (one for each month!) that will have a huge impact on your productivity, life, and overall happiness throughout the year.
