Do you want to achieve consistency in any goal that you are pursuing? Do you want to feel a sense of accomplishment even during the days where you were not feeling like this? Do you want to reduce or eliminate the days where you were not working towards your goal?
Then, you have come to the right place. I will show you how to achieve any or all of the above.
Before showing you how to do it, I would like to show you the proof that it worked for me.
Just during the start of the year, I was overweight. My clothes were tighter and I was feeling lethargic as hell. Then when the pandemic came, I knew deep down in my heart that this is the time for me to take matters into my own hands and lose weight.
So that is what I did. I watched over many videos on YouTube and found out that being in a calorie deficit is what will help us lose weight.
After I found out that, it’s like I was enlightened.
What’s an easy way to achieve a calorie deficit?
It’s something that almost anyone could do very easily and that is what I did. I chose to walk 10,000 steps per day for most of the days.
But there were days where I felt like not doing it. so, I didn’t. But I felt guilty all over and some times, I couldn’t do 10,000 steps a day.
Even after going through all of this, I am proud to say that I am doing 10,000 steps per day daily now. No matter how hard it is. It would take me approximately 2 hours to finish walking 10,000 steps.
You might ask how did any of this is going to help you achieve your consistency, sense of accomplishment, or eliminate the days you are not working towards your goals?
Below are the key principles that I followed over these past few months that had helped me achieve my goal and would also help you achieve yours.
- Show up every day. Whether you feel like it or not, Show up every day.
- Make show up every day a non-negotiable. This is something that you must do, no matter what happens.
- Keep a minimum limit that you want to accomplish towards your goal.
- If your goal is to walk 10000 steps per day, then keep this minimum limit as 100 steps. If you want to write 1000 words per day, then writing 10 words should be your minimum limit. If your goal is to work out every day, then do 5-10 pushups.
- After your minimum limit for the day is accomplished, if you feel like doing more, then do it. If for some reason, you don’t want to do it, then leave it at that. Just know that you have worked something towards your goal for that day.
- But as you follow this principle, you would observe that you feel like doing more than the minimum limit for most of the days.
- Track your progress. It might be even on a book, a notes app, or an excel. Make sure that you are tracking your daily step count, word counts, or push up the count with date, day, goal/activity, minimum limit, and your actual count.
As you review your progress tracker, then you would find that you did move towards your goal every day, no matter how small that might be, but this will give you the momentum that you needed to accomplish your goals.
That’s it, guys, if you follow the key principles that I have shown above, then I am sure that you would be consistent, achieve a sense of accomplishment, and reduce or eliminate the days that you are not working towards your goal.
