There are three things to consider when turning self-awareness into action:
First, make sure that you’re personalizing your development journey. It sounds obvious but our attempts to change behavior often fail because they are not designed to meet our own unique needs. Avoid using a ‘one size fits all’ approach, instead use your self-awareness to build a development plan that suits you.
Second, practice micro-habits to produce real behavior change. Scientific studies show that if we want to produce lasting behavior change, we need to start with small actions that are repeatedly practiced so that they become part of your everyday routine.
Last, track your progress. Measuring your behavior and recognizing small wins is a great way to stay motivated. Over time you’ll see these micro-habits starting to have a meaningful impact on your behavior and pursuit of your goals.
