One thing that so many people seem to get stuck on ..
ME included! …
Is that if you don’t have “X” amount of time to work towards your goals in some area of your life, that it’s not worth doing it at all.
But I recently read about this concept of “micro-commitments”, and it has really hit home. And it’s already making a huge difference in my life.
One project that I personally have had on the backburner … but when I truly sit and reflect on it, is a MUST DO … is to do a new, digital AND hard copy, updated-and-expanded version of Kettlebell Challenge Workouts.
I KNOW this project is one of the highest leverage things I can do to bring my message to the world, and leave a legacy.
But it has gotten put on the backburner for so long, because it’s a monster of a project, and I have so many other things on my plate.
This idea of “micro-commitments” though, makes it so much more managable.
I have started working on this project for just 15 minutes every morning, and I am making FAST progress towards completion already.
(Stay tuned – the new, digital AND hard copy, updated-and-expanded version of Kettlebell Challenge Workouts is coming in 2018!)
Along similar lines, so many people have this excuse that they don’t have time to work out.
And, because they can’t commit 30 minutes, or 45 minutes, or 60 minutes per day to make it happen, they just don’t do it at all.
My question to you is, do you have 10 minutes per day to better yourself, to get in shape, to improve your health, to build the foundation for the rest of a high-performance life?
If you took one of the workouts from this program, for example:
And did it 4 or 5 days per week, first thing in the morning, for 10 minutes …
Do you think you’d be in better shape in 3 months, or 6 months, or 12 months from now?
In three months, that would be 36 short, but solid and intense, total body workouts that you’d get in.
YES is the answer – you would be making solid progress in your physical and mental well-being, and improving your life.
And those shorter workouts, and the results you get from them, very well may lead to longer workouts and more time you can devote to that area of your life, and even bigger and bolder fitness goals in the future.
The moral of the story is, do NOT let time stand in the way of your goals. Even if you have just 10 minutes per day, you can make significant progress. All other areas of your life will get better. You owe it to yourself to do this. Get ‘er done!
