What Two Of My Fav Writers Say About Tracking

Depending on where in the world you are, it’s the last day of July.

Already??

Phew!

Yes. It just flew by us, no? All of July, I discussed Leela’s story with you. Even in bits and pieces, it gave you a glimpse of how tracking is a useful habit. Today, I’ll share two of my favorite writers/influencers and their insight on the topic of monitoring.

My lovely friend, whether you’re learning to add a salad to your meals, trying to lose some weight, or looking to fit in some exercises into your routine – you just got to track whatever it is that you are doing. And then, in tiny increments, steadily improve upon the metrics.

See what this eminent surgeon and author Atul Gawande and productivity expert James Clear say about tracking.

Today, take a 30-minute break to be by yourself.

Just you .. with your thoughts, notebook, and pencil. Tomorrow is the beginning of a new month. Ask yourself what you’d like to accomplish – it doesn’t have to be some mega big ambition. Even that desire to wake up 10 minutes earlier is a valid goal to go after. You know, five months is a l-o-n-g time to get stuff done. Okay, at least long enough to get it started and get some traction.

You can’t ask for better mentors than Atul Gawande and James Clear for what you’re setting out to do. I hope you’ll check these links out.

Warmly,

g
