Tip: Focus On The Long Game 🎯
The emotional rollercoaster of obsessing over short-term gains probably ain’t worth the results (if any). 😫
Let’s take a popular example.
If you want to lose healthy weight in the next 30 days, then your mind will automatically start looking for the hack: What is the latest diet trend? How can I lose as much as possible as quickly as possible?
It becomes more about speed than a sustainable strategy.
One way to get the results you’re looking for is by building small, sustainable habits for making progress. 👣
It emphasizes strategy, gives flexibility and ultimately you’re much gentler on yourself – making it a lot more likely you’ll actually reach your goals.Once you’ve established a habit that helps you make progress – it’ll almost run on autopilot and you’ll be rewarded for years to come as a result.
If you’re stuck for ideas, you can simply start by resolving to create a small habit.
PRO TIP: create an anchor habit that naturally pulls the rest of your life together.
For example, lifting weights. You get to the gym, then it may create a ripple effect in other areas of your life. Not only do you get the benefits of working out, you might enjoy a wide range of secondary benefits that cascade into other areas of your life:
- Better focus post-workout.
- Eating healthier when consistently working out.
- Sleeping better at night and waking up with more energy in the morning.
You’ll have to figure out what your anchor habit is for you, but some popular examples include exercise, meditation, or budgeting your monthly finances.
