Setting Goals as Leaders, the Most Common Facebook Ads Mistakes You're Making, & the Only Storytelling Guide You'll Ever Need ...This Is THE LATEST!
I have an emotional allergy to self-discipline.
So, since I work from home, I put on my gym clothes in the morning on designated workout days. Even if I'm not going to the gym until the late afternoon or early evening.
Although I've kept to my personal goal of working out three times a week for 24 weeks, I still sometimes surprise myself with my capacity for laziness.
Meaning, in spite of my "dress for workout success" hack, I won't go.
Exhibit A. Me on Monday night.¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Unfortunately, when that happens, any disappointment in myself is often offset by the undeserved feeling of superiority I experience when I go to Trader Joe's in my gym clothes... instead of the gym.
I get to walk around in spandex and a track jacket, looking like I'm an "adult" who "works out" and "has it all" -- but really, I'm just there to buy the ice cream I haven't earned.
However, even with those occasional triumphs of ice cream over exercise, I'm sure if our COO, Chris Duprey, was here -- and not at a silent retreat in rural Massachusetts -- he'd tell me the fact I'm even making personal goals and (for the most part) sticking to them, is what matters.
