Mini Habits Smaller Habits, Bigger Results [ebook] by Stephen Guise (epub/mobi)

Lasting Change For Early Quitters, Burnouts, The Unmotivated, And Everyone Else Too

When I decided to start exercising consistently 10 years ago, this is what actually happened:
  • I tried “getting motivated.” It worked sometimes.
  • I tried setting audacious big goals. I almost always failed them.
  • I tried to make changes last. They didn’t.

Like most people who try to change and fail, I assumed that I was the problem.

Then one afternoon–after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise–I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This “stupid idea” wasn’t supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day). I had to consider that maybe I wasn’t the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as “the way to change” in countless books and blogs. 

I was right.

“Easily, one of the best willpower (not motivational) titles I have purchased. Period.” 

“In a way, life was a cage where all the fun stuff I want to do was just outside my hand’s reach. Mini habits gave me the key to unlock that cage.” 

“A very easy read, with surprisingly thorough research and helpful examples.” 
David Coombs
