What Gets Measured, Gets Improved

I’ve always sort of followed this in most walks of life but this is something that after getting back into a healthy fitness routine has re-ignited in me:

What gets measured, gets improved.

What do I mean by this? Just write it down.

If you want to get better at something, just write down what you’re doing.

If you want to lose weight, write down what you’re eating. It’ll make you realise how much crap you actually put in your body.

If you want to get stronger in the gym, write down how much weight you lifted today and for how many reps, and then next session, aim to do more. If you feel you’re wasting time or not actually achieving anything through the day, write down everything you do and the times it takes.

If you want to save more, write down what you’re spending, again, it’ll stop you buying so much pointless crap, and make you think much more before you hand your card over.

It takes a minute, but the difference it can have to your life is worth so much more than that one minute.

So there you go, it you want to improve something, just write it down.

Thanks for reading,
