Stop Making Excuses
This is by far one of the most important steps to take. As humans, we can rationalize many ways why we should have that unhealthy snack, skip the gym, or spend all our time watching The Office instead of meal prepping for the next day. At the end of the day though, we need to understand that excuses hold us back from achieving success, so stop making them. Having emergencies come up, or higher priority objectives are different from rationalizing on ways to get off the hook. That said, when the excuses go out the door, results start coming in.
Manage Your Daily Tasks Using a Whiteboard
Having an awesome whiteboard is by far one of the most underrated, yet most helpful tools you can add to your success kit. Here are some of the benefits of having a whiteboard and using it correctly:
- Helps you stay organized – Create a checklist for the daily tasks you need have completed before the day ends.
- Use it to hold you accountable – Try to use this as a tool for tasks you must complete each day before your head hits the pillow
- Allows you to plan ahead – Before you go to bed, draft your schedule for the next day so you are ready to go when you wake up
- It’s extremely cost-effective – You literally just pay for a board, an eraser, and dry erase markers. This is a no-brainer.
- Maintenance is so simple – There is almost no maintenance required. Just write, then erase… seriously it’s that simple.
Having a Routine is a Must
Building a good fitness is routine is essential for creating good habits and optimizing your performance at the gym. The reason for this is when you create a routine, you become consistent and that’s when you really start to see and feel your transformation take place. Having a routine does not mean going to the gym every day at the same time or doing the exact same workout every single time. Having a routine is about having a set of activities planned. For many, having a good routine has helped with stress, anxiety, and depression. If you want to be successful, make sure that you have a routine and be determined to stick to it.
Think and be S.M.A.R.T
What exactly does it mean to think and be S.M.A.R.T? Let’s break it down:
- Specific – Target a specific fitness or health goal you want to accomplish.
- Measurable – Measure your progress to make sure you are on track.
- Achievable – Ensure that your goal is achievable. (How realistic is this goal? How can I accomplish this goal?)
- Relevant – This goal must be important to you.
- Time-related – Set a target date to reach your goal.
