Paul Meloan – Vested Interest

Pick the simplest thing you can think of that would make a difference for the better in your life.  Now do that once a day, every day.  Repeat for the next three months.

Having no idea what you may have chosen, I am guessing that you will fail at least once.  Consistency is hard.  Damn hard.  My docs have recommended that I take a fish oil supplement every day.  One stupid capsule, and I fail to do it a lot more often than I succeed.

Now I have a Google sheet with a box I have to check every single day when I take my capsule.  I started April 1.  I will not be a success until I check the box on June 30, 91 days later.

All this for an action that takes me in between 6 and 9 seconds to complete. (Yes, I timed it).

I am just hoping that some consistency in small things will lead to consistency in bigger and better things.  This is just where I start.
