Pressestimmen

“The real clincher here, as Arnold helps us realize, is that in order to make successful resolutions, “micro” or not, we have to know ourselves and stop picking one-size-fits-all goals out of the bin.”
Elle
 
“These genius strategies from Caroline Arnold, one of the few female bosses in Goldman Sachs’ tech department, will help [to accomplish your goals].”
Glamour
 
“If there’s a habit you’ve been pushing against without a breakthrough, check out Small Move, Big Change. Reading it may be one of the last macroresolutions you ever make.”
Bookpage
 
"[Small Move, Big Change is a] thought-provoking road map to successfully transforming ourselves with new habits”
Booklist
 
Arnold, the managing director at Goldman Sachs and a technology leader on Wall Street, shows us how to effect behavioral change by thinking small. Through her own work, she’s discovered that you can vanquish bad habits by focusing on concrete, manageable goals.”
Library Journal
 
“The only thing this book did for me was to get me to floss regularly, which led to less red wine, which led to snapping at my kids less, which led to their doing the dishes more. Who knew that flossing could change your life?”
— Dr. Wendy Walsh, CNN’s human behavior expert
 
“I love this book! From page one, Small Move, Big Change is filled with wisdom, insight, and whip-smart ‘micro’ suggestions you can actually implement to change your life. Caroline Arnold manages to be funny, down to earth, and hard-hitting all at the same time. This is a must-read.”
— Amy Chua, Yale law professor and author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
 
Small Move, Big Change is a rare self-improvement book that actually works. With the right mix of science and practical examples, Caroline Arnold offers powerful advice for motivating ourselves to save more, eat less, get organized, boost our willpower, and even keep our New Year’s resolutions. It’s the most useful guide to getting things done since Getting Things Done.”
— Adam Grant, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Give and Take

Really An Excellent Book 21. Januar 2014
Von Jim Edwards - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When you read this book, you'll discover some things about yourself you didn't realize you knew.

1. You're creating new behaviors all the time.
2. You can modify those behaviors any time you choose.
3. You are in control of your life... you just need to learn how to push your own buttons.

Once you understand the rules - which the author lays out quite nicely - you will find it easy and fun to make small moves that create big changes.

Also, I love the structure of the book. The first 1/2 actually teaches you HOW and then the second 1/2 gives lots of different examples that make it real!

Next time you get ready to hit the checkout button, make sure you've added this book to your cart!

Smart, Well-Researched -- and It Works 18. Januar 2014
Von New Yorker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Bookstores are filled with books that promise they hold the secret to changing our lives. But as we all know, change is a lot harder than the self-help industry wants us to believe. Caroline Arnold takes a fresh approach. In short, identify small changes you can make in your own life that can make a big difference - and act on them. The thing is: this approach really works. Reading this book inspired me to adopt a number of microresolutions. One example: I've resolved that if I talk to a friend on the phone from home I'm going to clean up at the same time. Instant result: a much cleaner house -- something I didn't achieve with endless general resolutions to keep things neater. Unlike many self-help books, this one is also smart, funny, well-researched, and a pleasure to read. Now I just need to work on that eating in front of the computer late at night . . .

Absolutely Loved the First 30%, then It Lost Me. 14. März 2014
Von James J. Walsh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The first section of this book is excellent. It explains the concept of microresolutions, why they work, and gives rules on how to implement them. I was motivated to begin using them before I even finished this part of the book, much less the whole thing. I came away believing microresolutions can help me or anyone create lasting change and achieve goals.

The remainder of the book gives real world examples of how to use microresolutions, but I felt like it was instead telling me which goals I should be pursuing. I acknowledge that using examples will help readers understand how to use this new tool, but this just went too far. If I wanted to be told which goals to adopt to improve nutrition, I'd be reading a book by a nutritionist.

All in all, I'm still glad I read this book, especially the first 30%.

Easy to apply 22. Januar 2014
Von TInkerbelle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a great book to help you change little things in your life so that the bigger changes become easier afterwards. You start with things that you know you can change like remembering to hang the keys on the hook after using the car, putting your coat back in the closet rather than leaving it on a chair.This leads you to adopt a new attitude of doing and following up on it which is key for everything else. If you can master small little changes in your behavior, you will feel a new satisfaction that will motivate you to make more changes in other areas. The thing to do is to connect things together, for instance if you always forget to recharge your phone, you can give yourself the cue of doing it when you brush your teeth at night and this will help you to remember to do it and the satisfaction you get from achieving this simple task is the first major step in a total revolution of your life. Read it, it makes it easy and doable.It is a fun book to read too full of life's anecdotes that will speak to your heart.

Promises a lot, delivers a little 3. März 2014
Von Edward Durney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
There are lots of self-help books out there. Over 45,000 in print, apparently. Some are good, some bad. The book Small Move, Big Change tends toward the good side. It reads easily, filled as it is with stories from the author's own life and the lives of several other people (the many stories seem to be about friends, family and colleagues, or perhaps made up as illustrations). Like all good self-help books, you put it down with a burst of enthusiasm ready to change your life. That, in and of itself, may make it worth reading for some people.

But the author promises to deliver more than just a good feeling. She claims that using microresolutions can transform our lives permanently. That small moves can force big changes. Changes so dramatic for such small moves that they are like a butterfly that can make an elephant on a teeter-totter rise up into the air. But can they? I wonder.

For example, Caroline Arnold says that almost all of us need to drink more water. She says that thirst is often mistaken for hunger, leading us to eat when it's really water our body craves. She says that 75 percent of Americans are in a state of chronic dehydration. That 37 percent experience such weak thirst signaling that by the time they feel true thirst they are seriously dehydrated. That drinking more water will improve brain function, elevate mood, support short-term memory, boost endurance, protect against injury, enhance athletic performance, and aid in keeping us feeling full and satisfied.

But none of that is true. None. These are myths that circulate on the Internet and in non-specialist books like this one. In truth, few people are dehydrated. A normal adult gets enough water from the food they eat each day. Drinking more water might help if you have kidney stones or some other medical condition. But except in very rare cases you don't need to drink more water. "Building a water habit," as the author suggests, is not going to improve your health or make you lose weight. The main change is that you will visit the toilet more often.

Certainly we can all do some things to improve our diets and keep ourselves at a healthy weight. But human nutrition is a complex subject. Simplifying it too much into microresolutions like drinking more water or eating more salads or walking a dog more often will not really harm anyone, but on the other hand neither will making that change lead to weight loss, better health, or any real change at all. Small moves will lead to small changes. Big changes need big moves. (Or at least lots and lots of small moves.)

Similarly, Caroline Arnold talks about taking multivitamins, now thought by many doctors and researchers to be a waste of money at best, and harmful to health at worst. On some other topics, she does give lots of good advice, but almost all of it is advice that you can read in better books on managing time, conquering clutter, losing weight, or improving things with friends and family.

Too much throughout the book Caroline Arnold relies on fairly superficial research into topics that deserve more careful study. Her attributing a quote to Albert Einstein that he never said (he never said anything like "in theory, theory and practice are the same, but in practice they are not") shows the danger of relying on online research. In a book like this, reliance on trendy thinking severely saps the power of the author's ideas. That kind of thing might work in blogs. In books more care should be taken to think through ideas and give them support.

In short, the advice this book gives to make good goals is good advice. But that's all microresolutions are -- goals that are concrete and achievable. And nanoresolutions are just items on a to-do list. That's all interesting and makes a good book. But it's not revolutionary. And I don't think there is a shortcut to success. In other words, you won't often get big changes if you just make small moves.

Other books helped me more. For instance, with regard to clearing up clutter, A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits of Disorder--How Crammed Closets, Cluttered Offices, and On-the-Fly Planning Make the World a Better Place makes more sense to me. With regard to weight, I like Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It. With regard to personal relationships, Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most seems a lot more meaty than this book.
