WHY DOES THE KIN PROJECT WORK?
Each week, we'll send you a new challenge that will help both yourself and the world around you. The challenges might not seem particularly lofty or grand, and that's because...
They're not supposed to be.
As Leo Babauta says, you want to "Make it so easy, you can't say no." For example, if you decide you're going to do 50 push ups a day, it's enough of a challenge that you need to motivate yourself to do them and there's a good chance you'll miss a few days at least. However, if you start with 5 push ups a day, you'll probably stick with it. Doing only five push ups is such a little challenge, you don't need much motivation to drop to the floor and crank them out.
It's the same with The Kin Project. The challenges are hopefully small enough to up the chances of more people doing them. If enough people do the challenges and pick up these habits, we might actually wreak some havoc (in a good way) on the status quo.
The Kin Project sets you up to succeed because it follows these simple tenets of change.
FOCUS ON ONE THING AT A TIME
It might be counter-intuitive, but, as James Clear says, "the best way to change your entire life is by not changing your entire life."
The Kin Project asks you to focus for one month on one specific habit that will improve the world (and your life).
When it's time to start the next challenge, switch the focus to the new habit, but keep the previous one going. Keep repeating the process... and ta daaaa, we've saved the world...
