Welcome to the first "Weekly Thoughts" blog post. Here I plan to jot down my thoughts, observations and or take away's from the previous week.
Effort + Consistency = Results
Too often I see many gym-goers and athletes who apply themselves one workout and then not so much the next workout. Or maybe they show up consistently one week, but then cancel or fall off for a few weeks or months. See, in order to achieve the results you are looking for you need to bring the effort each and every session. Turning on and off the jets here and there will not help you progress, instead, it will keep you idle. Make the most of each and every session by challenging yourself to get better, not remaining in your comfort zone. If you bring consistent effort over the course of time, these actions will produce the results whether it's weight loss, muscle gain or athletic performance.
Prioritize your tasks on a daily basis with what is most important. This has helped me tremendously in my day to day actions! Every morning I write out what I need to get done and designate specific times based on my schedule and maximize my time to get these tasks done, meaning turning off the phone, TV or computer.
Sometimes things don't always go as planned and at that point its never a bad thing to step back and re-evaluate the situation. What is going well? What is not going well? What problems or issues are contributing? What can be corrected? How can we correct the issue? All of these are good questions to ask yourself when you sit down to re-evaluate your actions, plans or goals.
