Do you have the discipline to complete a 30 days assignment?
Imagine you get 10 tasks to do on a daily basis, which will train you to become a better person. The individual tasks don’t take too much of your time.
Personally I see as a change in habits, as it is known a change of habit takes around 30 days, assuming you work on the changes on a daily basis.
I got very excited at the beginning, we finally got a kind of a procedure to get closer to our goals. It can’t be that hard, can it? 😉 First week, man you should have seen me. On Fire …
But no results. I was surprised to see me slowing down. Since when am I so into immediate gratification? Is that a human thingy? I really love how Jerry Clark explains this issue:
Simple disciplines on a regular basis for a long time will turn uncomfortableness into final comfortableness. Simple error in judgements on a regular basis for a long time will turn comfortableness into final uncomfortableness.
You do the interpretation for yourself, as this can be applied to many areas of life.
I am currently in the last week of our 30-days assignment and no, I was not consistent. Do I have excuses? Maybe.
- Not enough time
- not enough money
- I am too young
- I don’t know anyone
- … and so on
