  • If you have clicked on this video, you are probably looking back at the last few months

  • and asking yourself, what went wrongAt the beginning of the year, you have set

  • many new year resolutions. You promised yourself that this year is going to be different, and

  • by the end of the year, you are going to be a completely different person.

  • But that doesn't seem to happen anytime soon. I don't really like setting up goals because

  • the problem with setting up goals, especially huge goals is that, it really depends on how

  • you feel at that particular time if you can achieve it or not.

  • It's the beginning of the year, you feel like you have plenty of time, and pretty much every

  • goal seems achievable, but a few months down the road, you realize that you actually don't

  • have that much time in the first place. So what I like to do is focus on the right habits.

  • Instead of setting up a goal of achieving 100K subscribers by the end of the year, I

  • would rather set a goal of uploading videos twice a week, and it doesn't really matter

  • how many subscribers I will get by the end of the year. I might get more, or I might

  • get less but uploading twice a week seems like a more achievable and practical goal

  • than getting 100K subs. That's why I build tiny little habits that

  • I practice every day. Setting up a goal to read 50 books a year sounds way more exciting

  • than reading a book for 15 minutes every day, but the second goal is way easier and practical

  • to achieve compared to the first one. So here in this video, I will share with you

  • 12 tiny, little habits that you can implement right now. You can easily incorporate them

  • into your life, and I guarantee you that they will have a far bigger impact on your life

  • than your new year resolutions. So give this video a thumbs up and let's start

  • with the first one. 


  • Stretch for 10 to 15 minutes every day  


  • Believe it or not, but the speed of your blood circulation is one of the decisive factors

  • whether you will achieve your goals or not. Your blood flow is what makes your body function,

  • even your brain. It delivers oxygen and nutrition to your brain and removes waste. In fact your

  • brain consumes 1/4 of your blood, and if that blood flow slows down, you start feeling lazy,

  • your energy level drops, your willpower depletes, you might even have difficulty falling asleep

  • at night or stay focused. What people don't understand today is that

  • our bodies were not meant to sit all the time. We are like animals who suppose to run, jump,

  • hunt, and constantly move but what we do instead is sit all the timeeight hours at work

  • and then a few hours in the car and so on. What happens over time is that your muscles

  • could move especially around your neck and slow down blood flow to your brain and make

  • you less productive, but by being more active or stretching at least 15 minutes a day, you

  • can avoid that. 


  • 2. Focusing on finish the task and not working long hours.

  • So here is how people work. You sit in front

  • of a computer, but before you start working, you have to check your phone, see what's happening

  • in your insta feed. Once you work for a few minutes, you checkout YouTube. Maybe right

  • now, you should be working, but you are watching this video.

  • I am not really sure at this point. Should I tell you to get back to work or watch this

  • video till the end but what I can certainly tell you is that you can boost your productivity

  • by giving this video a thumbs up. Wasn't that smooth?

  • Anyways, working for long hours is a waste of time. What matters at the end of the day

  • is the results. So try to work less but more productive.

  • 
 3. jog every morning 

  • There is a long list of benefits when it comes

  • to jogging. It strengthens your immune system or helps you live longer, but that's not why

  • you should turn it into a daily habit.   How you start your morning sets the tone

  • for the rest of the day. If you start it with something productive like 15 minutes of jogging,

  • it will be much easier to move to another productive task while when you lie for an

  • hour before you get up, chances you will be lazy to do something productive are very high.

  • 
 4. Journal every morning

  • Before I start working, I make a short to-do list where I write 3 to 6 things I have to

  • do for the day and always keep the list in front of me. If I accomplished them, I would

  • consider the day successful. It could be analyzing a company, conducting an important meeting,

  • or writing a script for a video. First of all, I have a clear plan to follow

  • for the day, secondly, after finishing each task, I feel motivated to finish another one,

  • and at the end of the day, if I accomplished most of the listed tasks, I feel a sense of

  • accomplishment, that I haven't wasted my day and did something productive and that pushes

  • to keep going. 


  • 5. Don't do or say anything when you're angry. When you get angry, you stop thinking rationally.

  • Your emotional response would most likely turn things worse

  • Try to remember at least one incident where you reacted emotionally to something, and

  • it ended well. You can't because there isn't. Whether you are in an argument with your partner,

  • parents, or some stranger in the street, always wait until you calm down before taking any

  • action. 


  • 6. Spend your most precious time wisely

  • When you wake up and had enough sleep, your productivity is at your highest level. Don't

  • waste that precious time on the least important things. Playing video games, talking to your

  • friends, or cleaning your house is something you can do during any time of the day, but

  • without enough willpower, you can't do creative work.

  • So start your day by working on the most important thing, and as your willpower starts depleting,

  • you can move to other things that require less willpower.

  • 
 7. Don't argue with anyone

  • It's important to have your opinion but spending

  • your time to convince people that you are right is a waste of time unless you are running

  • for office. It's absolutely normal to have two opposite opinions on the exact same matter

  • because our opinions are not always defined by the facts or the reality on the ground,

  • but how we view the facts does also influences our opinions. And since each of us grew in

  • a different family, with different friends, and different experiences, we perceive everything

  • the way we feel is right, so don't waste your time arguing why people.

  • 
 8. Break down every task into small steps

  • When I started going to the gym, I use to

  • procrastinate. Going to the gym means I have to get my stuff ready, drive to the gym, change

  • my clothes, work out for over an hour, take a shower so on. The task seems so big that

  • my brain would push me to procrastinate, but if it's something small and quick, it's way

  • easier to deafest procrastination. That's why always break the task in front of you

  • into many tiny tasks. It will be much easier to accomplish it

  • If you have to study, don't think about reading the entire book or studying for the next 2

  • hours. Promise yourself to study for 15 minutes or finish just one chapter. The moment you

  • start studying, it gets easier to keep it up.

  • 9. stop comparing your life to others 

  • "In a forest of a hundred thousand treesno two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along the same path

  • are alike." ~ Paulo Coelho People always compare themselves to others.

  • If he has achieved something by a certain age, then you should too, but the truth is,

  • you are a different person, and your circumstances are different. Your journey is going to be

  • different. So stop looking at others and focus on how you improve your life based on your

  • circumstances

  • 10. always find time to spend with your closest friends 

  • I remember when I desperately wanted to achieve something because I was doing terrible financially.

  • I disciplined myself, and for four years in a row, I worked for at 12 hours a day without

  • taking a single day off. I achieved a certain level of financial freedom,

  • but then I realized that I had no social life. All my friends with whom I built a strong

  • connection for years disappeared because they were tired of inviting me since I would always

  • say that I am busy, so I can't. But what's the point of all of that money when you have

  • no friends to talk to? Friends and family are even more important

  • than your financial success. No matter how busy you are, always find some time to spend

  • with them.  


  • 11. read a book for 15 minutes a day  


  • Nowadays, most of the information we consume is from the internet, online articles, YouTube

  • videos, social media, etc. But let me tell you a secret. Over 90% of the content on the

  • internet is for entertainment purposes because there is a competition for views and clicks,

  • so one way to get trustable, reliable information is from carefully written books. You don't

  • have to read hundreds of books but 15 minutes a day is enough if you do it every single

  • day.  


  • 12. Do what you enjoy  


  • People usually settle for jobs that pay well, even if they don't enjoy it. And that's normal

  • because, at the end of the day, you have bills to pay, especially if you have a family to

  • feed, but life is too short to only take care of your needs. You should also enjoy and do

  • stuff that deeply satisfies you. If you enjoy your job, then you are lucky. If not, find

  • at least a few hours a week and do what brings you maximum pleasure, whether it's a side

  • hustle or a particular sport. Remember, in the age of the internet. Everything can be

  • monetized. So once you get good at it, you will find ways to monetize it

  • Here you go. These 12 tiny habits are easily

  • implemented but will have a tremendous impact on your life. Don't try to implement all at

  • once, but rather one by one. In fact you don't have to master them all, even a few of them

  • is enough.
