Incremental Improvements w/ Mike Brodsky

November 24th, 2020
Small choices add up. Financial planner Mike Brodsky, author of the book Incremental Improvements, tells us how the micro-decisions we live by determine our quality of life and our capacity to attain our goals.
Gaining or losing 40lbs or becoming a millionaire (without relying on the lottery) are massive achievements that take many, many small decisions that (usually) accrue over a period of years. How can we stay on track to reap the benefits of tiny virtuous increments?
Join Terrie and Jonathan for this conversation with Mike Brodsky, as they unpack the incredible power of baby-steps.
List of topics/questions
  • why write a book called “Incremental Improvements”?
  • Is there an opposition between making small imperceptible “virtuous” choices and giving in to instant gratification?
  • How can we overcome instant gratification to make incremental improvements?
  • How important is awareness in making incremental lifestyle changes?
  • How aligned are mindfulness and incremental improvements in investment behaviour?
  • Are incremental improvements connected across facets of life? If we want to improve our relationships or their financial picture, should we start with improvements in daily health habits for example?
  • Is there a compounding effect of these incremental improvements? The idea that small improvements stack.
  • Is time the forgotten variable in evaluating our long-term goals with respect to our micro-habits?
  • How important is tracking when it comes to fostering incremental improvement?
  • The pandemic has made staying on track with personal goals difficult. Any advice on how to keep improving under such circumstances? Or, at least, how do we not let virtuous habits slide?
