The momentum of creating good habits will eventually lead to the feared, “I missed a day, the streak is broken so now I don’t have the motivation to do (insert thing you are doing to build a habit here)” it happens to all of us. In fact, it happened to me yesterday. I had full intentions of writing a post that day but it just didn’t happen. I went to the gym and got a lot of stuff done at home including making cold brew, I went to work and picked up lunch for my co workers(even though the initial order was stolen) and I brought out chicken to thaw for later in the week. I ended up being exhausted by the time I got home so, I just went to bed.

All of that being said, sometimes you can’t do everything you want to in a day. If part of that is something for personal maintenance like writing, working out, eating healthy or whatever, you need to know that doesn’t mean all is lost. If you have a bite of a cupcake, it doesn’t mean, “oh well, I guess I will eat the whole thing and while I’m at it I will have seconds.” If you miss a day of writing it doesn’t mean that a few more days couldn’t hurt. It just means you need to get back on that horse and try again. Consistency doesn’t happen over night and you wont see results until you have failed a couple of times.

There are a lot of things you can do to make sure that you stay on track. The most important thing you need to know is, you need to beĀ ON THE TRACK before you can stay on track. This means getting right back up(if its working out and you physically don’t have the force then don’t push it) and completing your goal. And now to figure out what I am doing for lunch today.

Thanks for playing
