Making The Time!
Hey everybody, I hope that you all had a kick ass weekend and were able to get in at least a little R&R (or if you worked, it was super productive!)!
Being that today is Monday, its a perfect time to "start fresh" and really get things cookin' for the rest of summer.
Can you believe that it's already July 20th?! Where does the time go??? Are you on track to acheive your goals?
Unfortunately, time does not slow down or stop...we can only make the most of what little we have.
Its easy to blame our circumstances or to blame other people for our "lack of time", but excuses are a dime a dozen.
What are you doing EVERY SINGLE DAY to set yourself apart, to attack your goals, and maximize your time?
Are you watching reality tv re-runs, or going through what Eban Pagan calls the "ocd loop?"
Do you find yourself obscessing over the details and never getting anything accomplished towards getting the major reward?
Now think about your training or athletic goals...are you still doing the same things you were a year ago? 2 years ago? When was the last time you made any REAL progress?
As Dan John has said, success is a habit. If you want to make big changes to your performance, then you need to take a serious look at your habits.
Start everyday off with a bang...read something or watch something motivational. Get inspired. Then eat a good breakfast. If it means getting up 30 minutes earlier, then do it...that time to yourself is invaluable and will set the tone for the rest of your day.
Quit letting other people and mindless activities suck away at your time. Be ruthless and cut off the fat. Prioritize your time and who you spend it with, or it will slip away and you'll be left wondering where it all went.
P.S. If you're looking to TRULY maximize your time with your training, Zach Even-Esh has an awesome product out...The Real Man Muscle Building Course...it's definately worth a shot if you're serious about your results and you're tired of wasting time!
