Learn from a Wall Street tech guru how to spot the small move that can make a big change in your personal and professional life.

When resolving to lose weight, save money, or get organized, we enthusiastically dedicate ourselves to ambitious goals but rarely follow through with them. According to longtime Wall Street technology leader Caroline L. Arnold, the 'big push' strategy of the New Year's resolution fails because it pits limited stores of willpower against a personal 'autopilot' of entrenched behaviors and attitudes that is far more powerful. To achieve change that lasts, she argues, we must learn how to make microresolutions that nail precise behavioral targets before out willpower gives out.

Small Move, Big Change is Arnold's guide to turning broad personal goals into small but powerful behavioral changes that lead to permanent self-improvement. Unlike a New Year's resolution that promises rewards on a distant 'someday,' a microresolution delivers benefits immediately - today. Arnold cites new scientific findings on the dynamics of personal change and offers engaging, real-world examples that prove how microresolutions succeed by instantly altering our routines and, ultimately, ourselves.
