The Importance of Tiny

When speaking about the power of tiny habits, James clear says that “So often we convince ourselves that change is only meaningful if there is some large, visible outcome associated with it. Whether it is losing weight, starting a business, traveling the world or any other goal, we often put pressure on ourselves to make some big improvement that everyone will talk about.” He goes on to say that “improving by just 1% isn’t notable, and sometimes not even noticeable, but it can be just as meaningful in the long run.”

Food for Thought:

  • Small improvements add up over time
  • Accentuate small gains with students, particularly with struggling students
  • Take time to celebrate with students and parents
