Why is that you ask?
Well, let’s say you’ve picked up a few good and healthy habits recently, like:you stopped wasting time scrolling through Instagram and social media, you started eating healthier…that’s great!
Is that it?
What now? huh? you don’t know?
You see, picking up good habits and sticking to them it’s not going to help you if you don’t know where you’re going.
You can be the fittest,smartest and most disciplined individual around- but if you’re lacking direction all of those tools you’ve learned to use and build with are not going to help you, because oftentimes we get “contempt” with the little stuff we’ve achieved and we don’t even bother considering that-yet again- we need to re-invent ourselves. And we automatically go in autopilot mode, where we THINK we’re improving by re-enacting the same habits day after day, but we’re not really moving.
Keep your habits a CHALLENGE.
IF they’re not hard to stick to anymore, they’ve become part of you-so they are obsolete now. (That doesn’t mean that you have to remove them, mind you)
How would someone get out of a maze or find his\hers way back home with the wrong map? they’ll end up in another place or even worse, stuck in the same.
This is what i call “fake improvement” – ok, you’ve done something to improve, but you need to realize that keeping the same consistency on the habits you’ve built, the things you’ve learned ecc..it’s not enough. Life it’s all about constant change, so STALENESS it’s discouraged. Revamp those habits, add new ones! learn new things! meet new people!
You need to have a Roadmap, little goals that will propel you forward to the bigger one. Don’t do things just to improve, do things to improve AND to reach what you have in mind. Because lack of direction it’s always associated with no results whatsoever, so it won’t take you long before you realize that even that you’ve put in the work into your new habits it’s not giving you tangible results.
Be smart about it.
