We sometimes want to take quantum leaps in progress right and yet is it sustainable to go all out and expect a sudden massive rapid change overnight?
Check this from Wooden and Jamison…
“You have to apply yourself each day to become a little better. By applying yourself to the task of becoming a little better each and every day over a period of time, you will become a lot better. Only then will you will be able to approach being the best you can be. It begins by trying to make each day count and knowing you can never make up for a lost day.”
So what could that look like?
Could be for example…
· Reading a page today and then a page and an extra line tomorrow.
· Studying for one minute today and then one minute and 1 second tomorrow.
· Climbing up one step today and then going for two steps tomorrow.
· Going to bed at a certain time tonight and then one minute earlier tomorrow.
· You get the picture here…small incremental wins, gradually and imperceptibly over time.
“When you improve a little each day, eventually big things occur. When you improve conditioning a little each day, eventually you have a big improvement in conditioning. Not tomorrow, not the next day, but eventually a big gain is made. Don’t look for the big, quick improvement. Seek the small improvement one day at a time. That’s the only way it happens—and when it happens, it lasts.” (Wooden and Jamison)
