The intention to-do list

When we set out to improve ourselves, we can become exhausted by endless to-do lists.

To make change easier (and more effective), think of what you want to be, not what you want to do.

For example, instead of Running 5 miles a day, jot down that you want to Be consistently active.

This frees you from just running (which you could become sick of) and allows you to try other ways (e.g. swimming, walking, or yoga).
