My son worked up his chart of chores for the week this morning. He addded a new one today: Save the World. In Boy Scouts he learned a story about a man who did his part by just picking up one piece of litter a day. My son does that now, picks up one piece of trash a day, and in his mind, that falls into the Save The World category on the chore chart:)
It made me smile, and I am certainly happy that he wants to make a difference. Then I started to reflect on the power of committing to one specific action to make a change. If you want to manage your time better - reviewing your todo list at the end of every day will make a huge difference. When I work with groups that are implementing a new system, or adopting a new way of working, one of the keys is to identify one or two simple new behaviors for employees, and have them take that simple action.
What change do you want to make, and what simple action will put you on your way?
