I blogged about the power of consistency last week, and a new method I’m trying – the “don’t break the chain.” Basically, you do something every day and it creates momentum and you don’t want to miss a day and “break the chain.” I’ve also been very motivated by the little steps every day approach. I created a new checklist for 5 areas I want to work on – writing, working out, reading a book on book publishing, FINALLY finishing Tools Of The Titans, and building a Pinterest Profile for this blog.
This morning’s workout was a PR for pushups in a minute. I told Bret about it as well as saying, oh hey, I’ve done a workout every day for the past 18 days. Now, disclaimer, some days a “workout” is purposeful stretching, or how many of X can I do in a minute, but I’d rather do a minute every day instead of my previous – workout a few times a week, miss two weeks, etc. This is the longest stretch I have been consistent….ever. My longest previously was 12 days, and that was only this year. Bret always says, you can go too fast, but you can never go too slow with working out. I’m glad I finally listened to this great advice!
I’m a big believer in keeping track of certain things so you can look back and see how far you’ve come. I’m already at 6 days with my new “small steps” additions. I’m making progress through two books that I’ve been meaning to read, and I’m taking steps on Pinterest. It’s SO nice to feel like all of the important things are complete by 7/8 a.m. before I even begin my other work.
