Don’t read this later – read this now! It shows you how to enjoy endless pleasure, and get so much done you relax and sink into well-deserved enjoyment…
So let’s begin… It’s true, humans are absolutely amazing at procrastination.
While there are a few exceptions, most of us will put off things that are new or overwhelming, rather than deal with them.
It’s so easy to set a huge goal for yourself – something like “I want to get a promotion at work,” or “I want to lose 30 pounds.”
And then we just let that goal hang out there and do nothing about it.
It is really good to have goals. People who have goals achieve far more than people who don’t have goals.
But the reality is that often our brains just don’t seem to like moving forward on our goals.
This is why most people start and fail at New Year’s resolutions, losing weight, and other behavioral changes.
But there is a simple brain hack that can help you achieve your goals and give you a huge leg up on success.
And it’s almost ridiculous how easy it is.
The incredibly weird power of micro-goals.
The first time I heard the term “micro-goal” I was confused.
I’ve been taught my whole life to set big, audacious goals for the dream life I wanted.
And I had no idea what a micro-goal was or why I should bother with it.
But it turns out the setting tiny little goals (and I mean itty-bitty tiny goals) can start a virtual cycle in your brain.
That cycle makes it easier to achieve those big, audacious goals that you may have been taught to set.
“Studies have shown that you can trick your brain into increasing dopamine levels by setting and achieving micro-goals.”
It seems that we can trick our brain into producing little bursts of dopamine when we want it to.
Dopamine is an important hormone – it’s what gets us out of bed every morning.
Without it, we wouldn’t have a lot of motivation.
Setting these tiny, little micro-goals and achieving them is a great way to harness the power of our natural dopamine production centers in a positive way.
Why setting up indicators of progress works…
Humans are creatures of habit.
Most of us follow routines throughout our day, and those routines generally work well for us.
But when we’re trying to accomplish something that’s really big, outside of our routine…
It is so easy to feel overwhelmed.
So in order to accomplish our big projects and meet our goals, one of the most important factors is to break those goals down into tiny little segments that are easy to accomplish.
This allows us to make progress.
And this is one of the most important parts of human motivation.
“Through exhaustive analysis of diaries kept by knowledge workers, we discovered the progress principle: Of all the things that can boost emotions, motivation, and perceptions during a workday, the single most important is making progress in meaningful work.”
It takes a bunch of effort to make a big goal happen.
By breaking that down into tiny, achievable segments you can create an ongoing sense of progress.
And this helps to keep you motivated and on task.
“The more frequently people experience that sense of progress, the more likely they are to be creatively productive in the long run.”
The smaller the win, the better.
When you’re setting up your goals, the first thing you want to do is to start breaking them down into small achievable sections.
This is especially true of the beginning parts of achieving a goal.
There’s real magic in just getting started.
Giving yourself a tiny win at the beginning can create a mental cascading effect that allows you to reach your goals much more quickly.
“Whether they are trying to solve a major scientific mystery or simply produce a high-quality product or service, everyday progress – even a small win – can make all the difference in how they feel and perform.”
If you are prone to procrastination (as most of us are), look at what you’re trying to achieve – and start breaking it down into its tiniest steps.
For example, if you’re working on eating healthier, figure out what might be the very first goal you can achieve on the way there.
Perhaps your micro-goal will be to buy apples at the grocery store, or (in my case) to ban white chocolate from the house.
By breaking your goals down into their smallest components to start with, you can take the overwhelm out of your brain.
That will put you into a mode where your brain wants to keep moving forward.
It’s really amazing how well it works!
“This is how I’m beating 20-year-old guys in the ring…”
I’m three times their age, but in the boxing ring in my neighborhood, I’m beating 20-year-old guys all the time.
It wasn’t always this way. I used to be tired, and I felt old.
But something changed, and I’ll tell you what it was.
When this changed for me, it got downright embarrassing. I’d be talking to a cute girl at the local watering hole and I’d find myself sporting this big bulge in my pants.
The girl widens her eyes in amazement. It was SO embarrassing.
I felt like a teenager again.
And then, my sexual reawakening made me super aggressive and impressive in the ring.
I’m defeating these guys now. And, even at work, I’m kind of walking with a swagger and intimidating far younger men.
The protocols I’m using are reversing the #1 symptom of aging: a falling metabolic rate.
And when it comes to sex, I can last 30 minutes or more in the sack. My girlfriend says she’s never had a man like me before.
