There are 3 powerful techniques to accomplish any difficult goal:

  • Step 1- Use micro habits to beat procrastination.
  • Step 2- Overcome your brain’s bias to choose immediate comfort over long term well being by seeing your future results–now
  • Step 3- Don’t rely on willpower. Use affirmations to make your vision clear and ever present when willpower runs out.

Here’s how each step works.

Step 1- Use micro habits to beat procrastination.  Micro habits are the best way to get started and keep momentum going toward a big goal.  Whether it’s landing a new career, losing weight, getting in shape, or overcoming a bad habit; micro habits are the key.  Willpower is overrated and in limited supply.  

“A micro-habit is much like it sounds: it’s a small, simple action that doesn’t require much motivation, but will help you build up to a larger goal habit,” says Dan Albright.  

Goal AchievementExample–sticking to an exercise routine.  When it’s time to exercise, you should set a micro goal to simply change into your workout clothes and stretch for a few minutes.  That’s it.  So simple.  Of course, dressing for a workout won’t make you fit, but it will build up psychological momentum.  Your mind will realize that you might as well keep going now that you’ve started.  Procrastination is no longer a threat because the pressure of facing a long difficult workout is no longer there.  All you’re committing to is getting dressed and stretching a little.  After stretching, the first exercise I do is one I enjoy and am good at–the momentum builds.  I save my hardest exercises until I’m well into the workout and it’s now a waste of my time to stop–after all, I’m already sweating.  I get up to workout every day at 6am.  Many days I get up planning to stop after stretching, but I almost always keep going into my workout because, as humans, we like to go with the flow and follow momentum.  It’s harder to stop doing something than to start.  Use micro habits to get moving in the right direction so you beat procrastination and achieve your dreams.  

Step 2- Visualize future results, now.   Subscribe to download the full eBook.
