As humans, we naturally avoid change. But change is crucial to growing and improving, both as a leader and in all aspects of life.

Too often, we think change requires a massive overhaul of our skills and actions. But change doesn’t have to be hard. Small, consistent changes can lead to major improvements over time.

I call it the 1% a day challenge. If you simply improve 1% a day, by the end of the year you will be 37x better.

I put together a video which talks about this in more detail. Please check it out below and if you want more content like this you can subscribe to my Youtube channel.

All it takes is small actions to become 1% better every day, which leads to big changes over time. This applies to everything, not just leadership.

Improving as a leader by 1% a day doesn’t mean uprooting everything and starting fresh. It requires smaller changes, including things like:

  • Putting yourself in someone else’s shoes
  • Recognizing an employee for their hard work
  • Spending time with someone different than you
  • Reaching out to customers or employees in a different area of the company
  • Having a conversation and practicing active listening instead of just hearing
  • Putting your phone aside to be present as you talk with others
  • Admitting you don’t know something and being humble to learn

Many of these actions only take 10 minutes a day. These improvements may seem small, but over time they can lead to big changes and make you a 37x better leader in a year.
