You set a goal - Losing some pounds. Finishing that long paper. Or finishing that video lecture. You set a deadline - “I am going to finish this paper in a week.” Yet somehow you don’t. You do it with much energy for a couple of days and then something comes up - that party, a “short” nap or that…
I really like this mindset. It’s something that I think anyone that I trying to make a change in their life for whatever reason can get behind.
The one thing I think it really does is to get rid of the mindset of failure. Some of us (read: me) never feel satisfied due to a combination of impossibly high standards for ourselves and the feeling of “I should be doing more”…but more isn’t quantifiable. There will always be more, but if you can honestly say you’ve consistently done something, it’s always a step in the right direction.
