United Airlines expects to save $80,000 per year with one small change they've made, according to an article in Inc. (you can read about it here).
The change? Discontinuing the use of cocktail sticks.
Seemingly insignificant - and yet…an $80,000 savings.
The significance of that didn’t escape me and got me to thinking…how can we apply that to areas of our lives? What small, seemingly insignificant, changes can we make that would have a major impact? (For someone who focuses on the end goal and tends to think in absolutes, this was a big deal!)
What if we
...really counted to 10 before we responded when upset?
...woke up (or went to bed) 10 minutes earlier?
...spent a dollar less a day?
...spent 5 more minutes with our kids at bedtime?
Or, what if we flip it...what if we focus on those small changes already made that are bringing you closer to your goals?
Let's celebrate the small wins and not only the end product.
So, what's your cocktail stick? What's a small change you made or can make that will, over time, reap big rewards? I'd love to hear about it.
And, if you can't think of anything - let's talk. We'll work something out because everyone can have their own equivalent of an $80,000 reward.
