The 1% New Year’s Resolution

by Kristie Burk

As 2014 winds down, most people start thinking about New Year’s resolutions.  You may have a resolution about your health, your finances, or your relationships.  Maybe you even have a resolution for some career goals or improvements for your classroom?

Whatever your goals are, take a few minutes to read this article by James Clear called “This Coach Improved Every Tiny Thing by 1 Percent and Here’s What Happened.”  In it, Clear explains how “the 1 percent margin for improvement in everything you do” can make big differences in aggregate.

“It’s so easy to overestimate the importance of one defining moment and underestimate the value of making better decisions on a daily basis.

Almost every habit that you have — good or bad — is the result of many small decisions over time.

And yet, how easily we forget this when we want to make a change.” – James Clear

Hopefully, this article will inspire you for 2015.

Have a restful holiday break, everyone!
