Arnold, corporate executive, finds from personal experience that “microresolution” is the first long-term success she achieved in realizing her resolutions—from losing weight to spending more time with her family, to going to the gym regularly, to being better organized. How she achieved these successes is presented as her system for readers of any age to make resolutions that they can sustain by developing new habits. Arnold’s seven rules of microresolutions include: don’t make resolutions you can’t keep, a microresolution is easy; make resolutions that are explicit and measurable actions; make resolutions in which the payoff is immediate, obvious, and sustainable; practice, practice, practice (a new habit takes time to become automatic); and make resolutions personal (what change in personal behavior meets your objectives?). Her chapter on sleep contains important insights for readers of all ages. Arnold concludes her thought-provoking road map to successfully transforming ourselves with new habits with this line, “Learning how to do just one thing differently punches your ticket for a voyage of continuous self-improvement.” --Mary Whaley --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
"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
"Rich...Wisdom from time immemorial—take it a day at a time and moderation in all things—reworked by Arnold to morph broad goals into manageable, measurable microresolutions."--Kirkus
“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 them doing the dishes more. Who knew that flossing could change your life?
—Dr. Wendy Walsh, CNN’s Human Behavior Expert
“Didn't expect to -- but 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 of the Tiger Mother and The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups

My only complaint is that she oversimplifies the issue of weight loss. I think the information/approach she presents is probably very helpful for people who are like her with less than 20 lbs to lose, but her calories in/calories out approach, whiel still common in the weightloss field is not really how our bodies work (it's been so successful for the tens of millions of people who are struggling with their weight, hasn't it? [Yes, sarcasm intended]).
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%.
a) the author's vivid description of her own experiences.
b) the second part of the book - where she discusses - Sleep, Overspending, Relations, Fitness etc. She suggests score of small things that one can do in each of these areas.
I read the kindle book - and then bought a paperback to gift to my teenage niece.
