I’m writing this on the stationary bike in the gym this morning. It’s empty. Do you want to know why? Because people set themselves up for failure. They set lofty goals. And there is nothing wrong with a lofty goal that matches solid determination. But when you mix the former with inconsistency, you’re setting yourself up for an early exit. So, as you set goals going forward, know it is better to do something and work your way up to a lofty point than to start thinking you will change everything just because the date on the calendar changed. That takes more than a plan; it takes you taking an inventory of yourself and your own motivation.
It’s ok though. I look at every day (as opposed to every year) as an opportunity to improve on my ability to be consistent. You should too.
