Hey – I’m Anita!
… good to meet you virtually :o)
I find writing about myself weird. No – make that painful. In fact it’s the hardest part about going public online nowadays. It feels indulgent, but also makes me think “who cares“. But you wanted to know a little about the “person behind the scenes“… and why tinylittleactions.me exists, so here we go – I’ll try and keep it interesting :o)
I’m a Personal Change Catalyst by mindset and nature.
Well — it’s a fancy title I gave myself because for about 16+ years, I’ve been helping highly driven people (Creators like you and me) to figure out how to take the one next step towards creating the wellbeing results they seek in their life.
These results can be in behaviours in business, mindset, health, fitness, whatever they need to enjoy their life’s work more, and for longer.
BUT – most of us stiffen up when we hear about behavior change, or habit creation. Because all we’re ever taught about making changes and new habits sounds hard and so serious.
And although there are some brilliantly simple methods already on the market, they require us to give up our day job (and our life actually), just to focus on habit creation and the stoic mindset…
But that’s not how real life works.
“The right time” never comes. Your schedule may clear for a day or two – but then all you want to do is chill a little. And you can wait for the “stars to align” for another lifetime, and still it won’t be long enough…
In my lengthy (15+ years) and broad habit creation experience I’ve learned that a life is designed in tiny incremental actions. But also – only IF you make these actions simple to understand, remember and do. AND only if you rig things in a way that fits those new actions into your life, AND you make them rewarding and fun enough for you to wan to keep doing them until they take hold as your new norm.
So that’s why I created the Tiny Little Actions method you’ll find here. It’s a 4-step method. And it lays everything you’ll need to know in one page. I made it free – because I want you to have no excuses not to take action.
You literally don’t have to make a money spending decision. You do however need to be honest with yourself about wanting to DO what’s required. Do enough to at least try it out :o)
Then when you’ve got your first success, the idea is for you to come back and pick – buffet-style – a new intention for yourself from the Archives here (also for free).
All of the ideas are designed as Tiny Little Actions you can take right away. No big prep. No heavy lifting. No need to wait for the “stars to align” (I’m gonna’ keep milking that one for a bit).
Why all free, Anita? How do you expect to make money?
Because too many of us (womenpreneurs) fall victim to our passion to serve others, at the expense of personal time, and eventually health and wellbeing, and life satisfaction.
I don’t mean this in a dramatic, rebellious kinda’ way. I mean it in a “wake up to the present moment, and make sure you are doing and feeling the way YOU chose to” way. It took me a little while to “wake up” to this urgency too (I’m writing this at the ripe young age of 45).
So much of the message about living a life you created intentionally, is rigid (in an all or nothing kinda’ way) and scary sounding, and quite masculine.
And that stops many of us from making a change. Or worse yet – it makes us feel we’re incapable of such stoicism, so we may try a few times, then just stop.
So – that’s what I’m about at the moment and why.
If you’re feeling the pull to act – signup to my free newsletter or follow one of the links above to the actual method – so you can check it out.
And NOW a Few Quick-fire Bits if You're Still Interested...
I’m an efficiency junkie. A problem-solver. A lifelong learner, but more significantly a DO-er (secretly I’m also a dancer :o)
My guiding mindset stems from this famous quote from my favorite book The Little Prince:
I’ve worn all the “hats” of a business owner for the past 13+ years co-running our business (and 15+ years in the health and wellbeing space).
I’m passionate about creating clarity out of complex topics and simplifying them to make them easy to “digest“.
I’ve been a graphics and prints designer (you already know that). A marketing and a project manager for legal tech companies in London.
I’ve had the absolute adventurous pleasure of working for an online gaming company as their paid search advertising manager (many moons ago).
I’m a certified Tiny Habits and Bulletproof Coach (although I’m legally required to call myself Human Potential Coach for the latter).
… And I did get a Fitness Instructor’s diploma yonks ago in London.
And I LOVE food. I either cook, enjoy, or seek to find great and healthy, food that makes me happy (and naturally something good to drink with it).
But enough about me, me, me, me, me…
I’m so glad you’re here — welcome.
Stay in touch (via the social icons in the header, and the newsletter). And never downplay the significance of YOU — the amazingly complex breathing, feeling, thinking, dancing (or singing) system that you are.
P.S. Never lose your colour & shine…
