Just Take The Day Off


“I am not sure when it happened, but people consistently fall short of their audacious outcomes in their lives because they have given themselves the permission to ‘take the day off.’”


-Jared Yellin


100% is easier than 90%.


I remember when I realized this…


It’s easier to exercise everyday versus five days a week…

It’s easier to eat a healthy diet for every meal versus 76% of the meals each week…

It’s easier to run marketing campaigns every month versus sporadically throughout the year…


YET…


Most people give themselves the permission to “take the day off.”


This does not mean you work yourself to the bone - AT ALL - rather you create habits and rituals that are deployed EVERY SINGLE DAY!


I wake up at the same time EVERY DAY!

I play with my kids with zero distractions EVERY DAY!

I have specific meetings at specific times EVERY DAY!

I eat organize and exercise at the same time EVERY DAY!


The purpose of this article is not to have you feel inadequate if you are taking days off, but rather to help you realize that your days out of ritual are actually more difficult that maintaining your rhythm.


Think about it like this…


Most people will sleep in during the weekend and then they really struggle on Monday morning…


Most people will stop their health regimen on vacation and then really struggle getting back on track when they return…


Most people will slow down their marketing during the summer and then really struggle building momentum in the fall…


YES, I’m Intense - But It Works!


I 100% understand that my intensity might be difficult to relate with but trust me - try it - it works!


I have shared this premise with 100’s of people over the years and each person started by saying - you are nuts - and ended by declaring - that was the greatest exercise in discipline and results EVER.


100% is easier than 90% in every scenario!


The things you do 100% of the time become your norm and even when it feels daunting in the beginning, I guarantee it will prove to be easier than picking and choosing when you deploy your discipline.


PLUS, you begin to create predictable results…


Predictable health…

Predictable finances…

Predictable romance…

Predictable relationships…

Predictable - Predictable - Predictable…


My nature is to enjoy the unknown but I stand for PREDICTABLE results and this is why I am committed to 100% over 90% at all times!
