We entered the maze went left. We saw what motivation was all about. We explored it's nooks and crannies.
Then we went right. We saw what willpower was all about. Did the same exploring.
We're back in the main room. The only direction we haven't gone is north. But the door is locked. And we don't have a key.
We have to go re-explore to the south, to make sure we didn't miss anything.
(Hint: we did.)
We talked goals and why they are rather empty by their lonesome. The juicy fruit to goals = breaking goals into the behaviors that'll lead you to your goals.
I want to lose fat. That’s nice. How are you going to make this happen?
I am going to…
…drink no calorie beverages.
…eat a rich source of protein at every feeding.
…replace 50% of my starch intake with vegetables.
And when faced what this objective, you probably selected behaviors based on the result you expecting them to yield.
In other words: I want to lose fat, so I need to pick the the best fat loss behaviors I know.
Makes sense, right?
There's really nothing wrong with this approach. If it works, you're good to go. Do Work and Get Shit Done. Your goals await.
Problem being, sometimes (most times)
IT DOESN'T WORK
because it foregoes your perspective.
