Good morning! I hope your year is off to a great start!
How are you going with the goals you set for yourself at the start of the year? Are they still going strong, or have the small, split-decisions already started directing you away from the result you wanted?
Anyone that has known me for a while now knows that I am currently doing a lot of chin-ups! However, not everyone will know why. The goal behind them is to eventually break the world record for the most chin-ups in an hour! The current record is at 1033 (yes, that is A LOT of chin-ups!), so I have a bit to go. But the number doesn’t matter; the only thing that matters is that I continue making small decisions to keep working towards that goal! As long as I consistently decide to work towards my goal, I will get there.
This principle applies with all your own goals as well – the key is to be consistently doing the things that are going to bring you closer to the result. Even though sometimes the small things might not seem like they are making a difference, everything counts. In fact, its usually the small things that have the biggest result. The things that are easy to do, but at the same time, easy NOT to do, but you do anyway because you are committed to achieving your goals! These are known as the Slight Edge decisions!
