8 Tactical and Practical Steps to Assess and Change Your Daily Routine

Have you ever found yourself crazy busy doing stuff, but failing to accomplish things that truly matter most?

You’re not alone. At times, we all get caught up in the “thick of thin things.”  A simple way to get back on track is to look at your daily habits and commit to making small changes. After all, many small things become big results over time.

Here are 8 tactical and practical steps to assess and change your daily routine.

  1. think through your daily activities
  2. write down repeated behaviors (be specific)
  3. identify low or little value activities
  4. prioritize the list – not sure, ask for help
  5. choose one item from the list and commit to eliminating it
  6. tell a friend or colleague of your decision
  7. put a date on calendar to check progress
  8. repeat every 21 days


I try to be a catalyst for change and improvement. Some of my ideas are spot-on, many are works in progress, and, admittedly, others miss the mark. That’s the nature of brainstorming and trying things. I’m okay with that. My hope is that something I write or share will help you to become a better version of yourself. I know that’s what I’m trying to do as well.
