Effort vs. Consistency

Is it better to work hard or simply make small changes every day. Lately I have been pondering this and trying to come up with a definitive answer. I made a list of a few things I have been pondering making changes in my life and thinking about what it would take to accomplish them. My biggest but not only thing on my list is losing the 10 lbs I put on from going to a desk job over the last year. I had tried insanity and believe me the name is fitting because you have to be off your rocker to finish something that difficult. In short each time I quit after only a few days. I just didn’t think the juice was worth that squeeze. Also, my schedule was so busy I hated the idea of changing my life around to find the hour a day it takes and the half hour it would take to recover. So after reading something about making change through consistent actions I decided to apply it to every aspect of my life. This included the 10 lbs I have been ignoring for the last month or so.

 

To begin, I thought about my current schedule and what I do on a regular basis. I wrote it out and pondered what activities I already do and like that I can make more beneficial to help lose the weight. For example, I usually take the dog for a walk around the block every day; I like doing this and it has been really nice out. So, now I have doubled the walking distance each day ( no more than a mile) and I have decided I hate cardio and was not going to be on a treadmill everyday. So I decided that I would try my hardest to do other adult activities at night… Every Night… Believe me Ryan has been pretty happy and It burns more than double the calories anyway. This is the extent of my working out every day with absolutely zero additional changes. I still eat the way I would like and keep my schedule the same. With the addition to these couple of activities I plan to lost the weight I have gained. I am down 3 lbs from the start of my routine and plan to continue this action indefinitely.

 

It is in my opinion that consistency in life is better than all out isolated effort. although effort gets you results faster. you will lose them equally as quick because keeping up with something that requires such commitment is typically difficult for most individuals but making small changes and keeping them up every day will get you slow results that endure. I recommend apply this to everything your business if you want to expand and grow, your children if they are not behaving the way you would like, your body, your relationship and overtime watch the small investments pay off with the happiness you are looking for.

Things You can Learn about Buisness or your Career from a 4 year old

Image

Just the other night I was babysitting my little niece. Over the course of the evening she was talking about all of the things she wanted to do. She would tell me how she is going to be a princess and her and her “horse are going to live in a big castle. Now obviously most of us do not grow up to become royalty (unless were Kate Middleton) but over our childhoods we learn skills and are told each and every day to be realistic. Children Like my niece are fearless and free to dream at the age of 4. If we were encouraged to dream our entire lives imagine who we would become. I myself would not have gotten a practical degree in which i did not really want and waste many years of my life sitting behind a desk not enjoying one bit of my life.

 

First of all Begin to dream again each and every day. visualize and write down what your life would be like in your ideal world. Remember back when you were a kid and why if you were like me you wanted to be a Pirate or a Firefighter. Begin to dream of a whole new wold even if it is something that reality could never sustain. This will help to increase your capacity for thinking outside the box and give you that same enjoyment a child would have when they are playing make believe.

 

Next, start to compile a list of things you really like to do and do them more often. Life is about having fun and enjoying the people and culture we have all around us.  There is an old saying that if you love what you do for work then you never worked a day in your life. This is very true because you would have choose to do these things anyway. for example,the love of my life loves to hunt and fish ( what men don’t!) He is going to be using this love to create his own business so he can spend every day doing just that. Or how about my friend Christina who loves children she decided to become a social worker and create a place that’s helps children in need gain better resources. There are many ways we can be happier with what we do ; but, we need to know what we love first.

 

Last, I challenge all people to go out and learn what it means to be truly fearless and brave. worrying about what might happen leads us to that exact sequence of events and yet if we simply go for it we almost always arrive at our destination safely. If a better life is what you seek be like my niece was with her first horse back riding lesson. If a 4 year old girl can walk right up to an animal 20 times her size pet him and without even a flinch jump on his back because she wants to be a princess with a  horse I am sure you can start enjoying your life and taking the steps to making your self happy!

The importance of Goal setting and writing Objectives

Image

 

Goal setting is something that is crucial in achieving anything you want in your life. The act of setting a goal when done properly does a couple crucial things that will lead you to organize your projects even if you do not know how to achieve a goal in the end. The reason goal setting is important is because it will allow you to come up with small objectives that when added up as a whole leads you to the final destination. Think of the goal as the Destination and the Objective as each step towards your journey.

 

How to set a Good Goal- 

 

First in order for a goal to be good it needs to have a time frame this will give you perspective and motivation on what you need to achieve and allows you to measure your goal. For example, I am finishing up my Ebook now i am writing now and my original goal was as stated.

 

I will finish my e book by the end of July this year.

 

The other important aspect of a goal is it should be broad and cover all aspects this is the big picture you want to achieve. This is the end result instead of the means to get there. I am sure you have all heard the saying you don’t need to see the whole staircase just take the first step. The goal is always your final destination.

 

How to create good objectives- 

 

The objectives are the small actions you need to take every day that will move you towards your goal. I personally live by “The Rule of 5” therefore i take 5 steps i think are important every day towards achieving my goal. Objectives are small actions that are measurable and should be done quickly and regularly. for example, one of my objectives today is

 

Tonight, I will research at least, 5 spiritually successful people and find at least 3 commonalities in their processes and how they live their life for my e book.

 

Goals and objectives are an important step to creation process and practiced amongst all successful individuals. I guarantee if you begin to write out what you are working towards and apply writing objectives daily towards your goal these small steps will add up to an amazing end result you will be proud of.
