#006: The Power of Incremental Change [Podcast]

Last summer, Gail and I visited the Royal Gorge near Cañon City, Colorado. It is only a few hundred feet wide at the top but more than 1,250 feet deep in places. This ten-mile long canyon was cut into solid granite over approximately three million years, at just a half an inch per century. It is an awesome example of the power of incremental change over time.

Episode Outline

You can make small, daily investments that will soon lead to big results. Here are seven examples to get your creativity flowing:

  1. Losing weight.
  2. Paying off debt.
  3. Improving profitability.
  4. Writing a book.
  5. Running long distances.
  6. Reading the Bible.
  7. Improving your marriage.

How can you harness the power of incremental change? By following these five steps:

  1. Identify a goal.
  2. Make sure it is S.M.A.R.T.
  3. Identify your incremental change (or new practice).
  4. Track your progress.
  5. Recruit a growth partner.

Listener Questions

I also answer three questions from my listeners.

  • “How do you get yourself motivated to make the change in the first place?”
  • “I just don’t seem to have much will-power. Is there any hope for me?”
  • “When do you take massive action verses practicing incremental change?”

Episode Resources

  • http://ignitechange.net/ Craig Morton

    These are excellent. I like your voice, style and the content.  Thanks

      Thanks, Craig! I appreciate that.

  • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

    I’ve run three marathons (so far).  For each marathon, it has required incremental training.  You don’t start out running 26.2 miles.  You start by running three miles.  And you build from there.  In each case it worked like a charm!

    • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

      Three marathons? Wow Jon, you’re the man!

      • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

         It’s a lot of work, but I’m convinced that most anyone can do a marathon if they incrementally train for it.

        • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

           I bet. I have a friend who is getting ready to run his fourth. Growing up I never would have thought he would’ve done something like that. But with his training and gradual build, he has done it. One day I’ll get there, first I got to get through the 25K coming up.

        • http://www.jeffrandleman.com Jeff Randleman

           It’s one of my life goals!

  • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

    I’ve lost and maintained the loss of 40+ pounds over the last year thanks to incremental change. 

    • http://jonstolpe.com/ Jon Stolpe

       Congrats!  I lost 28 last year, and I’ve had a little regression – but for the most part I’m maintaining.

      • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

        Congratulations, Jon. (Or as my friends from Australia say, “Good on ya.”)

      • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

        Thanks Jon! Sounds like you did quite well in the weight loss arena as well. 

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      That’s huge, Joe. Congratulations!

      • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

        Thanks Michael. I got started on my weight loss goal thanks to your motivational post about LoseIt.com.

    • http://www.robsorbo.com/p/welcome-from-disqus.html Rob Sorbo

      Was that using LoseIt? I started off really well, but eventually stopped losing weight. It got really frustrating because my calories were in the correct range, but I wasn’t getting any benefit from it. I’ve recently started an exercise program, so maybe that will get things back into gear. I definitely could lose 40…heck, maybe even 140.

      • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

        I think it’s normal to hit plateaus along the way. The exercise should help. I would also avoid high glycemic carbs, sugar, white flour, and fried foods—even if the calories are in the correct range. These foods cause your system to be more acidic, which signals to your body to store fat as a buffer to protect other tissue.

        • http://www.robsorbo.com/p/welcome-from-disqus.html Rob Sorbo

          And that definitely could have been the case–I eat plenty of the bad carbs.

      • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

         Rob, yes that was using LoseIt.com. I was diligent for the first 6-9 months or so. Once the weight began to normalize I started winging it and have been able to maintain my weight.

        I found a weird phenomenon when I reached a place where my weight stopped dropping. Having a splurge day or skipping and exercise day tended to restart the weight loss. Seems counter intuitive but it worked.

    • http://www.MicheleCushatt.com/ Michele Cushatt

       Wow, that’s great, Joe. Good job!

  • http://www.SiaKnight.com/ Sia Knight

    Losing weight, reading the Bible, runnning a marathon and writing a book are all things that are in my graveyard of past endeavors. I, like most of us, have been an unfortunate victim of procrastination and inaction.  I am happy to report that a plan of incremental action works! I have made progress in a couple of the areas named (runninng a 1/2 marathon and writing a book)  and, with the tools that were suggested in the podcast, I hope to make gains in the other areas as well.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Your comment reveals another aspect of success. Connect to your successes and build on those. Excellent!

  • Tom Fox

    Great podcast! Small investments do lead to big changes! I love the idea of blogging that leads to writing a book. Going to get started today! 

    • http://www.MicheleCushatt.com/ Michele Cushatt

       Love your attitude, Tom. Did you do it today?

  • Blessed

    Your note about comments reminds me of Monday’s goal for this week – not to be snarky, quickly amended to not being snarky any more. But the bigger change is in my ability to return to work. My emotional and physical health and consulting business collapsed after a year when my husband had an extended health crisis and was subsequently fired and my father died. When we moved to another state I was in too much physical pain to walk through a grocery store.

    Under the care of my pain management specialist and his favorite chiropractor I began making incremental changes. I wake up in pain and take a boatload of pain meds to get through the day. And my husband’s in a new health crisis. But I am supporting our family now. And I haven’t used an electric cart in the grocery for at least 6 years. I would not be doing either had it not been for a lot of prayer and incremental changes along with way.

    • http://www.MicheleCushatt.com/ Michele Cushatt

       Your determination is inspiring! Keep going!

  • Scott Wilt

    Loved the podcast!
    Here’s a quote it reminds me of: “Don’t let what you CAN’T do keep you from doing what you CAN do!”  So many times I don’t do anything just because I can’t do everything.  For example, I can’t exercise for 30 minutes today, so I won’t even exercise for 15.  Incremental change!

    Another handy iPhone app that I’ve been playing with a bit for tracking incremental goal progress is called “Way of Life.” 

    • Jim Martin

      Great quote Scott!  I just put it in my Evernote.

  • http://talesofwork.com/ kimanzi constable

    Two years ago I lost 132 pounds in about 8 months. I did 4 hours a day of cardio and dropped the weight fast but I didn’t learn any real lessons and gained it all back and then some last year. This year I’m going at it again with a more realistic and gradual goal of 10 pounds a month. I’m learning lessons that will become habits and WILL keep the weight off this time, great topic for a podcast Michael, thank you.

    • http://tcavey.blogspot.com/ TCAvey

      WOW! Great job! You’re an inspiration to all.

      • http://talesofwork.com/ kimanzi constable

        I don’t know about that but thank you!

    • http://www.robsorbo.com/p/welcome-from-disqus.html Rob Sorbo

      That’s how most of my diets have gone too.

      • http://talesofwork.com/ kimanzi constable

        That’s why what Michael is talking about is key: incremental, gradual change. It’s the best way to create lasting habits, it’s what I’m doing.

    • http://www.kellycombs.com/ Kelly Combs

      Wow! That is amazing. Congratulations!

      • http://talesofwork.com/ kimanzi constable

  • http://cherionethingivelearned.blogspot.com/ Cheri Gregory

    As a naturally all-or-nothing kind of person, I appreciate your practical steps and encouragement to get the proverbial snowball rolling!

    I’m finally learning that doing SOMEthing rather than NOthing can lead to satisfying cumulative results.

    • Jim Martin

      Cheri, great sentence at the end.  You are right!  “…learning that doing something rather than nothing can lead to satisfying cumulative results.”

    • http://www.MicheleCushatt.com/ Michele Cushatt

      I can be an all-or-nothing person, too. If I can’t get a large project done today, I don’t start it at all. I needed to be reminded that eating that elephant can take more than a day, but it’s more likely to get done if I start taking bites.

    Great content! Thanks for putting in the time to make this happen.  I really like the upgrades to your brand (podcasts, show notes, Listener Feedback Line, etc.) I’m sure you have surrounded yourself with great resources to help, but I wanted to make sure you knew about Pat Flynn. I found him through Twitter. He leverages what he’s learned about online resources to help others…and gives it away!  You both seem to be on the same page when it comes to adding value to others. You need to check him out. Lot’s of “How To” videos and podcasts:

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Yes, I have been following Pat for a few months. Love his stuff! Thanks.

      • http://www.dwaynes--world.blogspot.com Dwayne Morris

        Say Michael, I’ve heard Pat mention he wants to improve his public speaking. You need to get him connected to the work you are doing with Ken Davis…

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          I’ll do that. We are sold out for the next conference and maybe even the one in October. I’ll check and then connect with him.

        Anytime! That’s the beauty of the “tribe.”

    • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

       I started following Pat a couple of weeks ago. So far it has been great stuff! Can’t wait to see what I can learn from this master of passive income.

      • http://www.dwaynes--world.blogspot.com Dwayne Morris

        Just curious…do you have a site that you’ve monetized with some of Pat’s tips? I’d like to see it.

        • http://www.jmlalonde.com Joe Lalonde

           No, not yet. I’ve only listened to three or four of his podcasts. But I have a few ideas brewing and we’ll see where they lead.

    Great podcast, Michael. Super message. I am working on my first book proposal and am overwhelmed to inaction. Time to start incrementally–one blog post, one 500-word chunk at a time. 
    I have used incremental change to draw closer to the Lord, one devotional, one letting go/letting God, one grace note. Giving up my will, one tiny bit at a time, giving Him room to come in.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Good for you, Julie. You can do it!

  • http://www.robsorbo.com/p/welcome-from-disqus.html Rob Sorbo

    Great points. I used LoseIt at your recommendation last fall and lost about 15-20 pounds, most of which I’ve kept off. I also recently started doing Couch to 5K, which is a running program similar to Jeff Galloway’s. I enjoy these programs so much more than the all-or-nothing tricks I used to try make work!

    • http://TillerFamily.org/ John Tiller

      Congrats on figuring out what it takes to maintain the healthy weight, Rob!  Thanks for sharing your experience.  It will help other readers!

    How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. 

    When I began working for the CEO of Circuit City Stores, I was overwhelmed by the mass of mail that was delivered to my desk to process.  It was literally over 1′ high! I said, “I’ll never get this done…along with all my other duties!” But the other Executive Assistant said, “Just process one piece of mail at a time.”  It actually took me less than 40 minutes a day to process it on average, once I got going.  

    Great encouragement today.

  • Kurt Swann

    Michael!  Thanks for the post, podcast and resources.  The resources especially will be valuable and they gave me several new ideas I can use!

    Here’s an example of how I’ve used the concept you talked about.  Last summer I started learning how to skydive and wanted to earn a skydiving license.  The training started with classroom work followed by a series of 7 jumps over several weeks.  Each of those jumps taught a new skill which built on what I learned in the previous jumps. After those 7 jumps I could jump solo and continue improving various skills on my own, such as turns, backflips, and more accurate landings.  After 40+ jumps plus a written test I jumped with an instructor who evaluated the skills I had learned.  I earned the basic license in December.   I’m still a rookie compared to other people I know who have thousands of jumps.  But the entire process was definitely one of incremental change where I learned  new info in small amounts on a step-by-step basis.  

    Thanks again!

    Kurt

  • Diana Gourley

    Last  October I learn about incremental change and “Lose It” from you. I went to the site that day and registered. Since then I have lost  thirty-five pounds. I am five pounds from my goal because of daily accountability. Thanks for blessing my life.

       Congratulations Diana! LoseIt is an amazing tool, isn’t it?

  • Carenejoy

    i’m sorry, are you saying that you believe that the earth is 
     ‘approximately three million years’ old? How did you come to believe that Michael Hyatt?

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      No, I am not saying that. I believe that God created the world in 6 days, just as Genesis says. However, I don’t know when He did it. The Bible doesn’t give us a date.

      • Carenejoy

        Oh I totally agree with you about God creating the world in 6 days! Thank you for the reply Michael! :)

        • Suehansel

          But the Bible does give us a date, that’s why we have all that “boring” genealogy in the new testament. If you follow trace the ages of the deaths and the parent/child relationships it’s quite clear the earth is about 6,000 yrs old… Not millions. Go to http://www.answersingenesis.org if you want to know more

  • http://successbeginstoday.org/wordpress John Richardson

    Thanks for a great podcast, Michael. You are now making my commute more enjoyable! While incremental change can be powerful, it’s not always easy. Until you start seeing results, it can be difficult to keep going. That’s why it is important to examine our current habits and see if they are leading in a positive or negative direction.

    Cutting 500 calories a day from our basic diet can lead to a loss of one pound a week. Conversely, adding just an extra 100 or 200 calories a day over our baseline can lead to weight gain over time. It’s these slow insidious changes that add pounds month after month.

    Whether it’s fast food, credit cards, expenses, or addictive items, incremental change can have a negative effect on ours lives and we may not even notice it. Making simple changes can turn a negative habit into a positive one. We just need to know what direction we are going.

    Amen! Begs the question…if a little stream can cut granite over 1000′ deep, what could you do with a little incremental intentionality in your life.  

    Pareto doesn’t come close…impact doesn’t require 20% of our time…it can happen in 30-60min a day…I almost shudder to think of what could happen if we were focused on incremental growth 20% of the time!

    Michael, your podcasts are simply fantastic!! Extremely well done.

    I’ve seen big results in 5 of the 7 example areas you speak of, but didn’t attribute the success to incremental change until you pointed it out.

    The only reason I haven’t seen results in the other two areas is that I haven’t tried. (writing a book and improving profitability). But, writing a book is on my bucket list and I have a blog, so I think I’m going to go for it!

  • Joshua rainwater

    I had a question. You have mentioned both joe’s goals and nozbe. Do you still use both? If so how to you use the together? Or did you stop using joe in favor of nozbe. And do you use lifetick? I saw you mentioned that. It seems like allot of overlap, I’m sure you don’t still use all of it.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I am no longer using Joe’s Goals. IRunURun.com is, I think, a better option, though I am not using it right now. I am using Nozbe for everything. I have not used LifeTick—just played around with it a bit. Thanks.

    Michael , I was just listing to podcast number 6. You were talking about taking little steps to accomplish big goals. Reading he bible for example.
    I work a night job, I work alone and I am allowed a listening device.
    I created a playlist, threw all he tracks of an audio bible in there, arranged them to play in biblical order, genesis – revelation, and set an alarm to play the playlist 1 hour before my break.
    Now additionally, the playlist was set so every time a track was played twice, it would be removed from the playlist. This way I would hear each chapter twice and it would make it easier to start from where I left off. I listened to each track twice just so in case I was not really paying attention, I at least heard it a second time. This can easily be done in iTunes.
    1 hour 5 nights a week, It took me a year and a half to make it through the entire bible.
    I remember exactly where I was standing when those last few words of revelation were spoken.
    It is a must for anyone who holds the bible to their faith to read it from cover to cover, even through those hard books.
    I’m still working that night job and making it through the bible once again. I do even read it with my eyes along with the audio. It helps with all those weird names in the genealogies.
    I recommend this bible.

    It is a must for anyone who holds the bible to their faith to read it from cover to cover, even through those hard books. 
    I’m
    still working that night job and making it through the bible once
    again. I do even read it with my eyes along with the audio. It helps
    with all those weird names in the genealogies. 
    I recommend this bible.

    Thanks Michael for this great podcast. I believe in incremental change too. In fact, I am a member of the MorningCoach community, not sure if you know it, it’s a daily podcast on self development, and the motto is “getting better, 1% at a time”. And it’s so true, it is so much easier to approach a gigantic challenge if you break it into pieces and keep moving forward, day by day.
    Thanks for the great ideas, the inspiration and the very practical steps you always outline. You have a very clear mind!
