Small Move, Big Change: Using Microresolutions to Transform Your Life Permanently | [Caroline L. Arnold]

Small Move, Big Change: Using Microresolutions to Transform Your Life Permanently

A Wall Street tech leader explains how small behavioral changes lead to major self-improvement. Whether trying to lose weight, save money, or get organized, we' re always setting goals and making resolutions but rarely following through on them. Determination and willpower aren't strong enough to defeat our mass of ingrained habits; to succeed we have to learn how to focus our self-control on precise behavioral targets and overwhelm them, according to longtime Wall Street technology strategist Caroline Arnold.

Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street tech leader explains how small behavioral changes lead to major self-improvement. Whether trying to lose weight, save money, or get organized, we're always setting goals and making resolutions but rarely following through on them. Determination and willpower aren't strong enough to defeat our mass of ingrained habits; to succeed we have to learn how to focus our self-control on precise behavioral targets and overwhelm them, according to longtime Wall Street technology strategist Caroline Arnold.

Small Move, Big Change is Arnold's guide to turning broad personal goals into meaningful and discrete behavioral changes that lead to permanent improvement. A microresolution is easily kept and designed to nail a self-improvement target exactly and deliver benefits immediately. While the traditional resolution promises rewards on a distant "someday," a microresolution rewards us today by instantly altering our routines and, ultimately, ourselves. A wife, mother, and business innovator, Arnold uses her own successes and failures as case studies.

Contrasting her career success with her personal resolution failures, Arnold recounts how by analyzing her own behavior she was able to reengineer her resolutions so that they were guaranteed to succeed every time, from losing weight to improving key relationships. Providing scores of engaging examples from the wide circle of colleagues and friends who practice her microresolution method, Arnold also shows how her system is supported by new willpower and habit science.

    "Real World Usefulness"

    The core idea of the book, micro resolutions, is a good one, & ranks up with temptation bundling as an excellent method of making permanent changes in any area of your life.My dad has lost 13 labs in 4 months making very small changes.
    The idea is good, & the book gets information across in a clear, easy to understand way. My only complaints are that the language is sometimes cheesy, & it seemed like the book could have been a lot shorter & more condensed. Still, I'd absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to change any part of their life. So pretty much everyone, yeah.

    "Great book"

    Great book
    Listened to it a few times to rediscover new information. Only bad thing is it references the book for more information.

    "Core concepts come early. but worthwhile"

    The second half of the book provides examples of microresolutions (most topics readily applicable to me - organization, punctuality, weight loss, etc.) as well as a new concept of nanoresolutions.
