Don't Let Today Rob Your Tomorrow
In the moment we often forget the weight our decisions can hold.
During the pursuit of goals many don't understand how they've fallen short, where they've occidentally derailed themselves and how this same scenario has made them falter multiple times.
It all comes down to your decisions.
You are exactly where you are now because of the decisions you made yesterday.
How you look, how you feel, the progress you're making.
Today's decisions can either reward or rob you tomorrow, and the choice is no one but yours.
If you stay up excessively late night after night you're robbing yourself of the most productive (early morning hours) tomorrow.
If you're putting off tasks on your to-do list you're overestimating your future willpower and your to-do list will continue to accumulate and accumulate day after day.
If you're binging on dirty, simple carbohydrate laced foods each night you'll rob yourself of an efficient workout tomorrow as you feel lazy and lethargic, often resulting in skipping your workout all-together.
You're rewarding yourself if you're going to bed early as opposed to staying up late to complete a task so you're able to tackle it while you're willpower is at its strongest first thing in the morning.
Hitting your macronutrient and calorie goals and feeling energetic and fresh ready to murder your workout.
Waking up and eating your proverbial frog each day to ensure you're not delaying your most imperative task and losing the momentum you've built from previous days.
We Overestimate Our Willpower In The Future
Don't make poor decisions today and assume you'll get it done or you'll do double the work tomorrow.
Because you won't.
We overestimate our willpower in the future which results in more procrastination and delays.
Make decisions that fall align with your goals and don't delay for tomorrow.
Focus on doing that each and you'll form a wave of success.
Habits & Consistency Are Key
"But SJ, how do I make the right decisions on the fly?"
It's hard, I try and avoid it.
Opt for small habits and consistent actions.
This builds discipline and ensure you're not falling and robbing yourself of tomorrow by unconsciously making poor decisions.
Implement your habits and reward yourself today.
You'll thank yourself tomorrow.
