Today I want to talk to you about a couple more consistency pitfalls: perfectionism and it’s little sibling all-or-nothing thinking.
How easy is it to fall into a “pause button” way of thinking all because of perfectionism?
You know the one I’m talking about. It often sounds something like this: “Oh, I’m not really doing this very well (or perfect) right now. I’ll just come back to it when life isn’t so crazy and I can do it better.” Then you never really seem to come back to it.., This idea that you’re either all in, or all out is killing you!
If your aim is lifestyle change, then you HAVE TO accept that life will have its ups and downs and do what you can in the midst of that.
For example, you may not be able to get 30 minutes of exercise in five times a week at times, but to let it slip away completely?
You can probably tweak that to a day or two, or make it smaller for a bit by just doing 10-15 minutes.
That’s way better than nothing!
So try this next time you want to take a pause: Let go of some expectations and just do what you can! Oftentimes it’s the slow, steady progress that works the best.
