Daily Habits — The Daily PPILL #132

Sometimes, committing to do something daily, looks a lot more difficult than perhaps a few days a week. That may be true, but actually following through may be the problem.

I’ll say it here. I am not really good at going to the gym. Part of it, is that I am obsessed on how I use my time. I mean, I am the type of person that when I am passing the load from the washing machine to the dryer, I have a mental debate whether if I should start the next washer load before starting the dryer to have them both finish earlier. So this drives me to optimize my time at the gym, exercising all major muscle groups in one session, which then requires a day or two of rest.

This is when the wheels come off. Things get in the way, and I end up sabotaging my own schedule. What more muscular people than I do, is that they go to the gym every day. Once they are there, they spend a lot of time walking around and huffing and puffing. Me instead, get it done and leave.

Here my theory (feel free to roll your eyes): They don’t get more muscular because they spend more time exercising. They do because they keep their commitment. They go to the gym every day. THEN they figure out what are they going to work on, but there is no such thing as “gym day”. Every day is gym day, and that’s simple. Better to keep a commitment.

For some people, daily, is easier than twice a week.
