A year or two ago I read a book, a little book, which made a big impression on me. Recently I have pulled it out again for a second read, and I just discovered on Amazon that the book has been republished under a 2014 copyright (the original was 2004). That news prompted me to order a new copy for myself as well as two more for coaching clients.

The book is called One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way, by Dr. Robert Maurer. I’ll share with you some of the information from the 2004 edition’s jacket and let you discover the richness and delights of the book’s content on your own.

“The philosophy is simple: Great change is made through small steps.”

“The techniques, easy, yet all encompassing:

  • Ask small questions
  • Think small thoughts
  • Take small actions
  • Solve small problems”

“The science, irrefutable: small steps circumvent the brain’s built-in resistance to new behavior. The goal: change your life without fear, without failure. The results: amazing.”


And reporting in on the subject of my goal of 31 blog posts and 31 days of two-mile walks plus some yoga time during ADHD Awareness Month, the walk and blog post are accomplished for today, and the yoga will come this evening—promise!
