#1068 If You Want to Reach Your Long Term Goals Value Consistency over Intensity

Many of us have been taught to work as hard as we can on anything that we take on. Whether it’s work, sports, exercise or diet, the harder you work you quicker you achieve what you set out to do. The problem with this mentality is that it’s often not sustainable. If you set out to lose 20 pounds in a month, it would be very challenging. If you are disciplined,  you could probably succeed. If instead you decided to change your lifestyle to eat healthier foods in more frequent but smaller meals, it would take a longer time to lose the weight, but because you’re not starving yourself  (which equates to working as hard as you possibly can on your diet) it has a greater probability of being sustainable. Said another way if you want to reach your long term goals, value consistency over intensity.
