Monday is sometimes known for being the Monday Blues, needing extra coffee, back to reality, etc. Some people view Monday as a fresh start, clean slate, chance to start something new, etc. The latter is the way to go but what happens after Monday?
Having the idea or even starting the new habit is great but without sticking to it Monday means nothing. Whether it’s surrounding stress management, diet or exercise a game plan is 100% necessary or else it goes out of the window when Tuesday comes. Here are three steps to keep it going every day of the week.
1. PLAN - write down (open notes in your phone) your goal and what you think it will take to achieve it. Be clear about your why and your what. What is your goal? Why is it your goal? And what do you need to do to accomplish that goal? Think through every day and what you will need to make progress during all seven.
2. PREPARE - during your PLAN you’ll see that you need to get new shoes, go to the grocery store or need a coach. While preparing you can buy those shoes or reach out to a coach, therapist or friend that knows about your goal. Have every day setup for success.
3. PLAY - now you play the game, so to speak. You execute your game plan and if you PLANNED and PREPARED then you should have your accountability built in, you should have all the tools in place to continue until you achieve your goal.
Plan on Monday and attack every day until the goal is achieved!
