Going for the minimum

Here’s a trick that I use to stick to new habits.

Give yourself a minimum.

20 reps. 50 words. 10 pages. Quarter mile.

Once you get used to the minimum, exceed it. That new number becomes your new  minimum. Repeat and repeat and repeat and then you’ll be amazed at how much progress you’ll make in something like six weeks.

You don’t need to rely on a council of habit bureaucrats to pick your standards. Decide for yourself. Set your own bar. You’re more capable than you think.
