Building Muscle!

What does business and building muscle have in common? 

I thought I would share it with you all as it resonated strongly with me and I know it will with many of you too! 

Learning a new discipline is like building muscle, so I googled what it takes to build muscle and the results were quite startling and revealing as to how they relate to our daily lives building or developing a new skill, changing a routine or improving an area of your life. I am sure you have applied many of these principles to your life and work, but imagine if you applied ALL of them to your aspirations, not just muscle growth. Here is the list:

  1. Start early.
  2. Keep it simple.
  3. Compete with yourself, not others
  4. Don't rely on luck or gimmicks.
  5. Rest and Recover.
  6. Do the heavy lifting.
  7. Stick to your routine.
  8. Eat well.
  9. Don't stress.
  10. Be disciplined and consistent

The above is based on substantive scientific research and reminds us how the nature of things applies to almost everything we do. Apply this list of disciplines to learning a new skill, getting into a new routine or any other goal and you are CERTAIN to achieve outstanding results!
