Back in January of 2009, I limited myself to one New Year's resolution. And I kept it small enough so I could be successful, with minimal effort.
Because that's how I roll. You know how I feel about the word, "minimum."
To my surprise, my small, minimal-effort resolution had powerful and lasting results. Want to know what it was?
Okay, drumroll please:
It's so simple, it's easy to miss the beauty of it.
Putting away a dish, rather than leaving it to dry in the rack.Hanging my purse on a hook instead of chucking it on the floor when I walk through the door.It could be putting my clothes in the closet instead of leaving them in a pile on the bed.It could be eating something healthy.I might decide to put away the basket of clean clothes, rather leaving them for "tomorrow."It might be reading a verse or two before I turn out the light.
The point is really about creating the kind of attitude we want to have: this challenges us to take one teeny tiny step each day...it kicks mediocrity in the butt, and gives us confidence to set bigger goals.
