Day Three || Why you should focus on the outcome, not on the how

Summary: Focusing on the how you are going to achieve something can mess with your head and make you unmotivated, focusing on the outcome and simplifying a goal from “I’m gonna write an hr a day to” to “I’m gonna write every day” makes it a lot more achievable.

Day 3 Exercise: Grab your journal. I want you to think about the commitments you made yesterday, and look at whether or not those commitments are outcome-based or if they’re how-based. If they’re outcome-based, great. If they’re how-based, tweak them so that they’re outcome-based instead.

Tweaked commitments….

  1. Write 5 days a week.
  2. Create new content for YT and Insta consistently
  3. Count my calories
  4. Walking 5 days a week.
  5. Reading something fun before bed as self-care.
