Don’t break the chain!

Share This Post

I was reading an article from a business associate of mine and came across a little article about Jerry Seinfeld of all people and the key to his success. I reckon the lesson applies to anything worth achieving in life, but especially changes to your health and fitness.

Seinfeld was asked by an up and coming comedian how he got to be so successful. His answer. “Write one joke a day, every single day. Then once you get the roll on, don’t break the chain!”

The idea was to put an X on your calendar (displayed in a conspicuous location) for each day that you achieve your task and then watch the visual grow. This is what I recommend you do for your exercise and health program. Every day you do something that takes you towards your goal; a formal exercise session, a new incidental activity, a good food or drink choice (when otherwise you wouldn’t) mark it down as a tick then make that happen everyday.

Simple huh? Easy??? Well may be not. This approach is what we are working hard to encourage.

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
