I really like this thought because it seems very attainable and sustainable. It's easy to put off a life change when the change is too drastic from what you are currently doing. But if you can do a little bit every day and change gradually, it merges with your lifestyle so that every day you are becoming a better you.
Of course this works for good and bad. You can so gradually deteriorate that you hardly notice until it is almost too late. Luckily, it's never too late to change. It might be too late to repair something without blemish, but a whole body with a scar, or a whole vase with a sealed crack is better than shattered pieces. You can't fix the past, but you can create a beautiful future and pay it forward.
Doing periodic self checks can help immensely to keep yourself in line with who you want to be. First you need to figure out who you want to be, then consistently perform self checks to keep on track.
