If we all take a step back and evaluate what it will take to achieve our specific goals, the majority of us likely know what we need to do. But it’s so easy to not do it!
We also get caught in thinking we need to add more to our life to change it. But taking away can be more impactful and much less overwhelming!
What it takes to achieve your goals
Whether it’s passing on the midday snack, saving a few bucks instead of getting that morning coffee, or passing on one extra Netflix episode to read or get good sleep, there are so many simple and seemingly inconsequential decisions that we don’t realize compound to a large result over a long period of time:
- A daily $4 coffee 5 days per week would save $80 per month
- An extra 150 calories per day would compound to 4500, or just over a pound of weight gain per month.
- Reading an extra hour per day instead of an extra episode of a show would be 30 hours of education per month that could help you improve or get ahead in business, a new hobby, or passion.
Tracking your activity is the next level to stay on track – I’ll get into more detail in a future post. But right now, take a moment to evaluate an area of your life you want to improve. What actions or activities are you engaging in that might be holding you back or slowing you down?
Where/What can you scale back (keep it simple) that doesn’t seem too significant, which you can sustain long term? Think 6-12 months down the road. What positive consequences can this decision have in your life?
