New Year’s resolution

It may be the largest thing that most of us do where almost everyone will give up.

With no official studies to back up this claim, I’d bet that most of us are making a resolution to lose weight.  At least in Western culture.

Fitbit has new models out.

Radio ad time is being sold to the fitness gyms this month.

There are plenty of articles out that claim to help you gain less weight during the holiday season.

Come February though, most of the gyms will have leveled off, returning to the normal amount of gym goers.

Reason:

  • People don’t want to be sore
  • It takes commitment
  • We lack of patience
  • It isn’t “easy

So instead of focusing on the results.

Instead of having to build patience.

Instead of making a long standing commitment with no prep laid out, let’s do something different.

Focus on effort rather than the end goal.

No need to compare yourself to others.

Compare today’s you, to yesterday’s you.

Are you beating what you did yesterday? Last week? Last month? Are you putting in more effort than you did all of 2016?

Use those questions as your goal marker.  As long as you do better than you did yesterday and so on, you will be better than you were too.

How does this apply to you?
