According to Success.com, “successful people use their exercise as a time to reset and plan and they make smart food choices that will give them the energy.”
“Research has found that conscientiousness is the only major personality trait that consistently predicts success, in terms of factors like income and job satisfaction,” reports BusinessInsider.com
“Oh good grief,” you are thinking.
“Now I have to get up when it is dark, start jogging and conscientiously do that every day! Not!”
While that would be great, that’s not exactly the best course of action for you. In my opinion, New Year’s resolutions fail because we make them too big, too broad and create scenarios we can’t keep up.
We promise to get out and run daily. While some people do run daily, it is not realistic to go from not running at all to running daily. Why not say that you will get out and walk three times per week? After a month, you can move to alternating walking and running and gradually build up? That routine you might actually do.
Getting up a bit earlier for some “me time” is a great way to grow toward success. It gives you time to plan and prepare to hit the ground running. But, why not try getting up an hour early twice a week? Try that for a while and work up to more often?
Until next time …
