#463 11. Start small. Whenever you want to create a new habit, start small so you will actually start.
 Start small. Say you’ve decided you should cold-call 20 new prospects every day. Great idea–but sounds daunting. Sounds really hard. Sounds almost impossible. Instead, start small. You can call two people a day, right? That sounds easy. That you will do. Then, in time, it will feel comfortable to increase the number. Whenever you want to create a new habit, start small so you will actually start, and then stick with it through that tough early period when habits are hard to form.
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
