Happy MONDAY! TGIM!
QUOTE OF THE DAY: Improve 1% every day.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Imagine if you improved one thing in your life for the next year by 1% a day. What if you just took one little step towards that goal every day? Consistent hard work over time equals improvement. It equals amazing. It equals a better you. It equals better nutrition, better mental health, or a better relationship. Or whatever else that goal is.
That is exactly what I have done with Matt’s Motivational Monday email list and website and now facebook page. It is consistently taking the time to do what you are passionate about and continue to keep doing it time and time and time again. Eventually, you will see the results you are looking for.
I recently did the lifetime indoor triathlon where you have 10 minutes to swim as many laps as you can, and then 30 minutes to bike as far as you can and then 20 minutes to run as far as you can. The last time I did that race I swam 15 laps in the pool. This year I did 17 laps in the pool. That was improvement. I would dare say that is a little more than 1% improvement. Maybe it’s not 37 times improvement either. It is somewhere in the middle, but then again I did not work for an entire year at the swimming. But you get the idea right?
This week may you improve 1% in your steps taken, in your miles walking, in your healthy eating, in your meditation, in your journaling efforts, in your exercise, in your dreaming or in whatever area of life you want to improve.
Never give up. Keep going. Follow the path that is in front of you. Keep trying. Keep improving a little each day.
