Consistency is Key!

Do you suffer from procrastination like I do? Do you want to become more productive? I know I do, which is why Alex Altman’s book Time is Money caught my eye on Amazon. It promised to: “Cure procrastination without willpower, Become more productive, Find your focus, and Get more done in less time.”

After I read his book it finally sunk in what I was doing wrong. I was resetting my goals before I had turned them into consistent habits! I understood that in order to get momentum going you need to create a ridiculous easy goal. Like turn on your computer everyday and open up your blog. Anther example would be to set the timer for 15 minutes to work on a project you have been avoiding. I would start out with a small goal like setting my Misfit to 400 steps. But then when I completed that goal I would increase it the next day to 500 steps and so on and so forth until I inevitably failed.

This constant resetting of my goal before I had created a positive feedback loop was causing me to fail. After reading his book however I have left my Misfit at 500 steps, a pretty easy goal and I plan on leaving it there until it becomes a habit. Any points over 500 steps will be extra for me. Consistency is more important than the size of your goal.

LEAVE YOUR GOAL SMALL AND MAKE EVERYTHING ELSE EXTRA!

This works because it creates a positive feedback loop from reaching your goal everyday. Your brain craves positive rewards and creating and leaving a goal small will ensure success!

Consistency ensures success. Now get out there and create lots of positive feedback loops in your brain to create your own success!

If you would like to buy the book, here is the link to this title on Amazon.
