Trust in the process.
Trust in your system.
I don’t have a diet…
I have system, a process.
I eat the same healthy way 6 days a week. Instead of struggling to find a healthy lunch everyday, cook a big soup/stew on Sundays, or grill enough meat to last the week. So when a special occasion comes up, I enjoy the celebration and eat the birthday cake, drink the beer or enjoy the PIZZA party! I can do this without guilt, because I know the next day I'm back on my system of healthy eating.
I don’t work out…
I have a system, a process.
Everyday I take some selfish time for myself. Sometimes lifting weights, sometimes yoga, sometimes running around with my kids, but I try to MOVE everyday. Some days I don't, but I don't worry about it or feel guilty. I know my system will kick back into place the next day.
And when I stumble,
when I FAIL (which I do all the time) ...
I rely on my system.
And my system says failure is not bad, NOT TRYING IS BAD. Failure is just learning and getting better.
Here are some POWERFUL thoughts from the amazing author, Tim Ferriss...
"Defining routines and systems is more effective than relying on self-discipline. I think self-discipline is overrated.
Allowing yourself the option to do what you have not decided to do is disempowering and asking for failure. I encourage people to develop routines so that their decision-making is only applied to the most creative aspects of their work, or wherever their unique talent happens to lie.
What do we see when we systematically study the great geniuses of all time? Almost all had personal routines that worked for them."
Once your systems are in place. Rely on them, Lean On Them.
Let your Systems do the heavy lifting!
