    This was good – simple and applicable 🙂

    I know whenever I get on personal growth kicks, I choose like 10 different things I want to improve, work hard on those things for like a week or two, and then stop because I get unmotivated because I’m not seeing improvement, it’s taking too long, I’m doing too many things, I get bored.. Etc.

    It should be so simple and obvious – do one thing at a time for an extended period. But I guess we all need simple reminders sometimes from time to time 😉

    Though, just the thought of working on just one thing for that long makes me groan 😛

    Also, I heard somewhere that habits take 40 days to break? Don’t rememeber where I heard it, but I remember being told that..

      Thanks for the comment, Trevor! I heard 3-6 months to break a habit…or was it start a good habit? I don’t know. It always seems to shift. And I always seem to break good habits and rediscover bad habits no matter how long it’s been. :/

    I’d like to share two books that I’ve personally found to be pretty inspiring and easy to apply in pursuing happiness and personal development:

    “The Happiness Project” and “Happier at Home” both by Gretchin Rubin.

    The books chronicle her personal “happiness projects” in which she sets small, manageable goals for herself to increase her happiness and then journals the results: her personal triumphs and failures, different theories and paradigms on happiness and how well they worked (or didn’t) for her, etc.

      I haven’t read Happier at Home, but I really enjoyed The Happiness Project. Thanks for the recommendations!

    Thanks guys!
    Nice and simple and practical.

    I’m not sure how you would metricize things such as communication effectiveness or general attitude or feeling of empowerment. I don’t think it matters too much as long as you know for yourself that you’re improving. But if you can measure it then all the better.

    I’d also be interested to hear anyone’s thoughts on what can sometimes happen when you extend beyond your comfort zone while doing this. If you’re not progressing or have setbacks, are there specific type pitfalls and remedies for incremental development? I’m sure there is plenty that can be garnered from the PH archives on this, but hey, I’m puttin’ it out there (incremental improvement no.1) for people to comment.

    Thanks so much for this 10% information. I am an INFJ and this has always been the destruction of my success. I want to do everything now. 2015 has been a year that my whole life has fallen apart in many ways. I have been so depressed because I am no longer myself and have not been able to even take care of myself almost. I have lost my husband who was my best friend and the businesses that made me feel that I had a reason to keep going and work towards everyday. I had never been a person to sleep my life away yet after the rug had been pulled out from underneath me to say I could not even face the day many times. I would tell myself that tomorrow I will get up and try to be normal again. This was always a defeat to me because I could no longer function to that state at this point and get depressed all over again and tell myself what a failure I was again. Between this podcast and reading a book by Dan Harris 10%b Happier I have at least somewhat been able to face each day and clean my house, fold my laundry and be happy for what I still have. I am in no way operating in the place I was in Dec of 2014 but everyday I make one more little change to make me feel I am not going backwards still and have come to peace and forgiven myself that It is okay if I’m no longer the Super Women I once was. Thanks so much and am so grateful for all of your info.
