A little often is better than a lot at once

You want to do business internationally or work in an international team. And you need to improve your English. Now is a great time to begin. You don’t need to change your personality, you just need to change your behaviour! And this you can do with one step at a time. As consultant Alan Weiss says, “Improve by 1% a day, and in 70 days you’re twice as good.”

Of course, there are lots of things you can do on your own. Why not think about a habit that you would like to adopt on a regular basis? Like watching a short TED  talk, listening to the BBC News, or reading a free e-book.

Decide to do something in English that you like

The idea is to do something on a regular basis. Start with just five or ten minutes a day. And if you miss a day, don’t worry, just go back to where you left off.

You’re finding it difficult to get started? Get an accountability partner – someone like a friend or a colleague who can keep you on track when your motivation is low.
