Change Your Life in One Year with Sahil Bloom

What if you treated your life like a puzzle?

Allow me to explain: when you approach a puzzle, you typically start by identifying the corners or edges.

Once you have your corners in place, you begin filling in the pieces, one by one. Each piece represents a small step or task that contributes to the larger picture.

Well, in life, progress is made by breaking down big goals into manageable tasks and tackling them one at a time. By focusing on completing one piece at a time (and not the whole picture), you gradually build momentum and move closer to your goal.

This was one of the many (MANY!) takeaways from recording this episode with my new friend Sahil Bloom, and of course, my temporary co-host Jen Gottlieb.

In this episode, you’ll learn how to make small changes that lead to BIG transformations, and what to do if you want to change your whole life… in just one year.
