“It doesn't matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop." ~Confucius

Some days are better than others. Sometimes you're on track and sometimes you are not.

A way to ensure you keep moving forward, despite setbacks, is to begin tracking your habits. 

By tracking your habits, you reinforce both your intention and commitment. So, when setbacks happen, you're able to get back on track more quickly.

MG recounts a couple stories about getting thrown off track and how considering these days as "throw-away days" helps him to reset more quickly and keep moving forward.

Further, he shares a story about a guy he recently coached to follow the tracking process and P.A.R.R. who experienced multiple setbacks, including; a colonoscopy, a tax deadline and a family member needing medical care, all of which derailed his progress.

In short, he didn't experience a throw-away day, he experienced a throw-away week!

The best part, he was already tracking his habits and knew to expect throw away days.

Thus, the real key—the essence to staying on track—is to continue tracking by following P.A.R.R. (Plan, Act, Record, & Reassess) which factors in the concept of throw-away days!

Enjoy the episode!

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible."
~Dalai Lama

Kindness is a habit (and trait) that is learnable and strengthened with practice.

In Season 5, episode 50 the "Kindness" topic was previously explored. In this episode, MG expounds on the subject, citing his experience tracking "TKT" ("The Kind Thing"), a habit he's had fun working on.

MG gives credit for the idea to a fellow entrepreneur who decided to start tracking his "kindness" habit in a goals accountability group.

Using The Habit Factor app, Martin code-named "The Kind Thing" as "TKT" and suggests that tracking acts of "kindness" is up there with the other "pro tips" like tracking at least one diet and one exercise habit, regardless of the overarching goal.

You're encouraged to give "TKT" a try and add it to your habit tracking.

Not only is "TKT" likely to make you feel better about yourself but it's likely to foster a habit which will serve you for a lifetime.

Enjoy the episode!

“Success is nothing other than a feeling. Some people feel 'successful' after taking their dog on a walk. Others feel like a failure if they don't get 1,000 likes on Instagram."

What is success, really?

Part of understanding success is knowing how you define it— that is, what are you aiming to achieve?

Having said that, there's a great argument to be made that success isn't something to be achieved as much as a moment to be appreciated.

Chances are good, though, that the truth lies in the middle. Success is both something to achieve and something to appreciate that generates a feeling of success.

For some, a big house makes them feel successful; maybe for a day, maybe for a month or year. For others, success includes a life of service and contribution that provides fulfillment.

Both situations equate to a moment in time when one FEELS SUCCESSFUL.

Thus, to feel successful, it's important to understand how you define success, know what makes you feel successful, and how to manage your emotions with precision most of the time.

If you don't feel successful, guess what? It's JUST A FEELING.

If you feel successful, take note and understand what the contributing factors are so you can manage that feeling better in the future.

Listen in to hear more about the component parts of success and how to contribute your ideas.

Enjoy the episode!

“During the darkest days of the Model 3 program, I reached out to Tim Cook to discuss the possibility of Apple acquiring Tesla (for 1/10 of our current value). He refused to take the meeting." @elonmusk

As much as rejection sucks, often, the further removed from it we become, the more it seems like a blessing.

After a rejection, two narratives may emerge. One takes us toward a direction of doom—a story and outcome we do not desire. But the other narrative can be hopeful—a story of possibilities. 

The idea is to consciously redirect rejection toward the positive narrative which fosters the emotions that set you up for a win, later.

In fact, rejection's greatest value may be that it fosters emotional resilience and self-reliance!

After a rejection, be aware of the story you're telling yourself. For example, "Oh sh*t! I didn't get that job, nobody's going to hire anyone my age," or, "They wouldn't fund our company, we have way too much debt, nobody is ever going to invest in our company."

If you're spiraling down this negative path, think about Elon Musk in the above scenario. After Apple's rejection, he remained resilient and steered his company through troubled waters. He was able to look back and laugh at the rejection, noting that Telsa, at the time, was worth 1/10th of its present value.

Listen in for more on handling rejection, how to redirect rejection to foster the positive narrative and emotions that set you up for winning later, and how to craft the supportive story that will carry you to your eventual success. 

Enjoy the episode!
