The Step Construct
by Chris Shugart
Negative actions or behaviors, even small ones, accumulate into regression — you get fatter, weaker, smaller, dumber, and sicker. Positive actions or behaviors, even small ones, accumulate into progression — you get more muscular, leaner, stronger, smarter, and healthier.
I’m not trying to turn you into an anal retentive OCD sufferer. This is just a mental technique that creates both awareness and accountability. It’s a construct that can keep you on the path to reaching your goals.
Whether you achieve that ideal body or not is up to you and the decisions you make daily. The fault, if you fail, is yours. The success, if you achieve, is yours too. Embrace the accountability.
How many steps did you take forward today? How many steps did you take backward? They add up.
Got that? Good.
