Most of us will agree that
summer can be a bit stop start for people.
Especially those of you with young kids
who are off school for the holidays.
Your normal routine can get “put on hold”
But now they’ve gone back,
it’s time start to start thinking about getting a routine together.
Something you can follow consistently,
rather than going hell for leather for 2 or 3 weeks,
and burning out like a match stick.
Lets face it, the comfort zone is pretty comfortable.
It’s familiar & safe.
So it can be very difficult to push yourself out of it,
especially when you have nobody to keep you accountable.
I’m a big believer in that success leaves clues,
And the most successful people I’ve come across,
have all one major thing in common.
The set goals, proper SMART ones
Specific, Measureable, Achievable, Realistic, Timebound
(flashback to business studies in school)
So they don’t just say stuff like
“I’m gonna try get fit now”
“I want to lose some weight”
Instead, right down how much weight you want to lose,
the exact figure
And what date do you want to achieve it by.
Kinda obvious when you think about it.
But this how you can really make the most of.
First of all, write it down
& put it somewhere where you can see it everyday.
Then tell somebody else, who will keep you accountable.
Someone who you respect
& that will call you out on any bullsh#t excuses you start making.
Focus on the next 90 days,
it will take you right up to just before Christmas time
Any longer is too far away,
so you’ll be tempted to out it on the long finger.
90 Days means you need to get cracking right away,
& break it down week to week
so you know if you’re on track.
So consider this.
Your opinion & your habits are directly responsible
for whatever place you are at right now.
If you are not happy in this place,
then you need to be willing to have your opinions challenged
& be open to changing your habits.
If you refuse to let that happen,
you will never leave that place you are currently in.
If you feel lost & don’t know where to start,
get help from someone who’s results you respect,
If you don’t respect their results, you won’t value their opinion.
Most people won’t do this.
But f#ck being like most people.
