|3. Why is it so hard to stay consistent?3 minutes | David Sherry
I've been struggling with consistency for over a month now. I thought I found my cadence, the perfect morning routine, and the perfect night routine.
Oh boy, was I wrong!
Consistency is HARD!
In the past month, I learned that a bigger blocker to consistency is perfectionism.
I try to be perfect with everything I do. I wanted my morning routine to go in the exact sequence the way I initially planned MONTHS ago!
What a disaster.
This might be something for you if you're in the same boat as me.➡ Read the post

|6. To meet your goals, forget willpower and fill your toolbox7 minutes | Marina Milyavskaya
Exercising more frequently. Spending less time on social media.
Being kinder to your partner. Standing up for yourself at work.
Each of us has many personal changes that we would like to make that we know would make our lives better, and yet we often hold off, unsure of how to take the first steps.
Or we try for a little bit but then give up as our regular routines take over.
Changing behaviours and habits is notoriously difficult!
So, how do we sometimes achieve successful change – and how can we increase our chances of success next time?➡ Read the post
