My wife and I were talking last night about dieting and working out. One of the things that hit me this morning – as I was thinking about our conversation – was the theme of consistency. (Brought up because of this post.) If you make it a habit of getting up every day and knowing that there is a specific time you have to work-out and you’re committed to showing up at that time, then you’ve won 80% of the battle.
Doing the same thing over and over each day (or Monday through Friday for example) will hopefully lead to a feeling of loss when you don’t do it. I think that this is comparable to NOT doing something each day – like exercise – which is something that makes it so hard to start in the first place.
You’ve gotta start somewhere.
Commit to do it the same day, time and place.
I feel good about that.
