It's the little things in life that make a big difference!
Replace a soft drink with water at just one meal-say, lunch. Over the course of a year, you will drink approximately forty gallons more water, avoid consuming up to 50,000 calories, and save as much as $500. Indeed, just as the stray coins you toss into a jar each evening gradually build into an amount you can use to actually purchase something sub-stantial, small changes-of any kind-can really add up! In Small Change, husband-and-wife writing team Susan and Larry Terkel offer readers a gentle yet powerful program for making significant changes in their lives based on three simple principles:
- Small changes are easier than big makeovers. (Each week add just one private dinner with your mate to your schedule and see your relationship improve by leaps and bounds.)
- Small changes add up to big benefits over time. (Smile just a little each day and, over time, watch your stress levels decrease, your immune system grow stronger, and your relationships prosper.)
- Small changes are more consistent with human nature and evolution. (After all, in the end, the tortoise did beat the hare.)
With an emphasis on daily habits, and some simple recipes for improving them, this wise little book outlines a fresh perspective on the timeless quest for sustainable self-improvement and a (relatively painless!) pathway to a better you.

I just finished this wonderful book, Small Change. I was very impressed with the writing style and the concreteness of the suggestions to create a more fulfilling life. I plan to recommend the book to several of my clients. What I most enjoyed about the book was the emotional openness that the authors displayed with their personal examples. It felt like the writers were talking directly and personally to the me. Also, I have read many books about "how to change your life," which describe people who "get in touch with their passion" and then became famous artists, writers or CEO's late in life. Both my clients and I have been turned off by this approach to change. While struggling with issues related to wanting more fulfillment, the reader reacts to these examples with feelings of failure for not having a "passion" and just give up hope for change before taking any steps toward new directions. Small Change has the opposite effect - it provides inspiration and hope for improving fulfillment one's life. It's an important book for self development.

This book highlights many areas of life that could use improvement and subtly invites one to examine just one small change in thought or behavior that yields big results in contentment and happiness. Keep it or give it. Great for young people.
quick, pleasant read
What a truly unique, perspicacious, and invaluable book! Small Change is an exceptional must read at this time of year, especially for those people who are looking to positively and realistically plan and implement significant improvements in their personal and business lives during 2005. The sage advice will motivate and empower you to make monthly changes, one at a time, thus charting a course of continual vast improvement in the quality and enjoyment of all aspects of your life. I found Small Change to be refreshing, easy to read, and genuinely focused on helping people to continually improve their lives to the fullest extent possible. Moreover, I am confident that several changes and actions I have incorporated into my daily routine will reap immeasureable long term improvements and enhancements in my life-physically, mentally, and spiritually. Thank-you Susan and Larry Terkel for this enthusiaistic, joyous, superbly written labor of love. Small Change is one of the top three books I've read this year. I heartily and enthusiastically recommend this book to everyone concerned with being happier, healthier, and making the most pf their lives.
small change, by Susan and Larry Terkel discusses how we can all effect changes in our lives by doing the little things that will later have a greater effect on our lives. Susan and Larry give us insights into how to use small changes in health, relationships, thought, work, and even how to have a happier life. This is not your average self-help volume. You can relax and take several evenings to read and gain useful insights into how to effect changes in the course your life is taking. Interspersed with personal anecdotes and helpful hints, even employing yoga, this would make an excellent holiday gift for anyone in the family or your circle of friends and acquaintances. All can benefit from this small but useful little book.
