Matthew's Mind

Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.

Why is it that someone could get up 5 mornings a week, run 5-8 miles a day, and do that for years – but never get any faster?

When others get up just 3 mornings a week, run 2-5 miles a day, and do that for months – to improve drastically and continuously?

One answer – deliberate practice.

If you simply go through the motions in anything (personal or professional) without a stated goal in mind, don’t expect to improve.

Improvement comes to people who plan. Improvement comes to people who track. Improvement comes to people who are deliberate, care and take decisive action towards improvement one key area at a time.

So what happens now… when someone gets up 5 mornings a week, runs 3-8 miles a day and does that years, but is deliberate each training session about what they’re going to accomplish? Greatness.

You can do that too.

    Compounding on the little things (being deliberate) makes all the difference in the world right. Those little things can change EVERYTHING. At the end of it all I’m killing this weight loss battle. Did a ton of things right the first time getting the weight off. Made a ton of habit changes. Didn’t figure some things out initially. But now it’s all coming together and I’m being very deliberate about what I eat/when I eat it and am understanding it much better now than I ever did.

    I like it.

    Good one.
