More is not More.
A common theme we see with A-type go-getters is when they make change, they make a lot of changes all at once. Then, when the needle doesn’t move very quickly, they throw their hands up and tell themselves, “I’ve tried everything, nothing works! I might as well go back to the way things were and accept feeling crappy.”
Focusing on too many directions at once.
This is diluting your efforts. Do one thing and do it well. Once you’ve mastered the fundamentals, then you can move forward.
No accountability or method of measurement.
What gets measured gets attention. If you’re relying on foggy memory, you can’t be sure what changes occur.
Kindness and Patience.
Please remember, it took years to break you; a couple of weeks may not be enough to bring you back. Give these tools and practices a chance to do their work.
Willpower is finite.
We only have so much mental and physical energy. This is why we need systems and the steps laid out.
