Think about how you organize your thoughts regarding and act in the most successful area of your life—those same thought patterns and habits will work in the less than sparkly realms, too.
SURPRISE! You can paint everything wondrous with the same brush.
Great at biz, but sucking at bod? Attack fitness & nutrition like you would a new consulting project. Plan. Measure. Manage. Iterate.
Killing it with family, but can’t make money? Give it the same attention to detail and care. Hold yourself accountable. Think ahead of customers’ needs. Be there.
Why don’t we do this naturally?
Big, ol’, beautiful emotional or mental boulders of varying shapes and sizes.
But fear not! If you’re ready, you can start renovating today.
No psychological-archeology tasks to perform.
You can simply choose to step around said blocks.
Do the things and you’ll have the power.
I think a better question is, “how do I lose a minimum of 10lbs of fat for good?”
‘cause let’s be serious, if you lose it in one week, it will come back with friends and vengeance.*
*note: if this is for an athletic competition or astronaut job interview weigh-in or other extraneous, finite event, your question is fine as it is. My answer is for the general population aiming to turn a few more heads than last week.
To lose 10# of fat for good, try these steps:
Above all else, be patient and keep it real.
A goal like “lose weight” is ambiguous and non-actionable.
A goal like “sleep 7 hrs 5 to 6 days per week” is something you can have a strategy for and track.
When you take the time to develop these habits, you’ll lose more than weight. See: stress, struggle, strife.
