Having big goals is important, but often the best way to achieve success is by focusing on tiny incremental gains every day. Measuring Inches instead of miles. Pennies, not dollars.
Today, my guest Tommy Baker talks about the counterintuitive strategy of making small but consistent improvements in your life. Tommy and I discuss why it’s critical to “fall in love with the process,” why you need to make progress towards your goal every day—even if it’s tiny—and how that consistency can ultimately yield exponential improvements in your life.
Tommy Baker helps dreamers, visionaries and entrepreneurs bring those dreams to life —and create a life they can’t wait to wake up for. As author of UnResolution, The 1% Rule and The Leap Of Your Life, Tommy believes living up to our potential is what we’re here for.
Through his writing, coaching and podcast, he’s helped thousands of people take their next bold step and never look back. He’s been featured in Entrepreneur, Influencive, Thought Catalog and more. You can also check out more at his website, ResistAverageAcademy.com.
