What skill could you learn if you spent 100 days of intentional work EVERY SINGLE DAY?
How good of shape could you get into if you spent 100 days of intentional exercise EVERY SINGLE DAY?
How much improvement would you see if you practiced EVERY SINGLE DAY?
I keep preaching the importance of “showing up”- of being consistent and persistent. The importance of being disciplined.
I’m awesome at this….in some areas. I’m terrible at this in other areas.
For example I’m pretty good at this in the areas of health and exercise. I’ve made being active part of my routine. I generally don’t miss a workout. If I say I’m going to go for a run, I go for a run. If I say I’m doing yoga before bed, I do yoga before bed. Consistent (I show up every day) and persistent (I keep at it).
I know this idea is the key to open many doors in life. I’ve seen it work its magic.
But it’s still hard to get right in other aspects of my life.
Ever since I was in 7th grade I have wanted to learn how to play the guitar. I was an EXPERT at air guitar as I imagined myself on stage rocking the heck out! So I begged and begged my mom to buy me one. “I promise I’ll practice every day!” Guess what happened? For a few months I stuck to my promise. Then time passed and the guitar sat there more and more. The sadness of an unplayed guitar.
Every so often I would get inspired. “Now I’m really going to learn the guitar!” For a few weeks I would consistently play. Then I would play less and less until it resumed its job of sitting there.
I’ve been stuck in this cycle for YEARS.
Recently I’ve gotten a little better, practicing a few times a week or consistently playing for a few months. But I’ve struggled at incorporating this into my routine even though I know the magic of being consistent and persistent.
This is why it’s really important to be held accountable, which is where my friend Calvin comes into play.
He will hold you accountable. In fact he’s creating a community meant to hold you accountable. It’s called the 100club.
100 days to practice a new skill, compete in different exercises, to accomplish a goal.
