Last week was a complete wreckage for me
No item in my to do list got the due attention
I had spent more than 80 hours looking at the screen and yet no major goal was achieved.
Disclaimer: a decent chunk of that went into watching Bond movies and movie recaps on YouTube!
So yesterday I finally got pissed off AF!
I’m paying a coach 1/4th of my paycheck to get my habits in order!
And yet I’m spending my time watching movie recaps instead of focusing on the things that I know I need to do!
That little hit from the panic monster was all that was needed to shake me out of my addicted couch potato comfort zone.
Just like that!!
Today I feel insanely motivated!
I’ve already covered three things out of eight in my today’s to-do.
This article is the fourth
But… I remember the previous week I was similarly insanely motivated.
That was one of the best weeks ever.
I worked between 10-14 hours for all seven days
And I got so much done!
Then it was followed by the worst week ever!
That’s the problem with insanely motivated.
Realistic is sustainable.
‘Insanely motivated’ on the other hand leads to burn out.
Yes it is possible to remain insanely motivated 24×7, 365 days!
Just like it is possible to run 300kms nonstop.
But you need to train your brain to get there!
You can’t run an ultramarathon on day one without any training.
You can try! But unless you are absolutely touched by God you will break down.
That’s why it’s important to realize the need for training, and the value of incremental improvement.
As clichéd as it is, the math of this equation is totally correct
