"If I gave you $1,000 to track 3 habits for one day could you do it? Everyone knows that they could!"
Martin recaps seven notable and common mistakes people make when trying to develop new habits.
#1) They forget IT'S A PROCESS! Unfortunately, many believe habit tracking is an ALL or nothing proposition! "It doesn't matter if you've failed 163 times, you are experimenting—keep trying!"
#2) They simply put a dot next to the habit and move on! When it comes to habit tracking, do NOT do what 99% of habit trackers recommend...simply put a dot and move on. Don't do that! Search: "P.A.R.R. Plan, Act, Record & Reassess and The Habit Factor"
#3) They focus on THE NEGATIVE HABIT. Put your energy and focus into cultivating the NEW habit! Put more time and attention on the new habit that should replace the old one.
#4) They do not understand what a "Tracking period" is. People do not understand the significance of "Tracking Periods" and exactly HOW LONG THEY SHOULD BE TRACKING! How long do you think you should be tracking?
#5) They do not add notes to their tracking! When it comes to tracking, besides adding a dot (which is very weak), they don't add comments! Adding notes to your tracking reaffirms your commitment and your intention!
#6) They think bursts of energy are important. The cultivation of habit rests upon consistency over a period of time. Daily bursts of energy do not facilitate habit development. It may feel good to give yourself many dots in one day, but it's not valuable relative to habit development.
#7) They underestimate the influence that the environment has on cultivating habits.
Personal mastery is simply a one-day-at-a-time 'event'.
If you can "win" today, you can do "win" tomorrow. Do that more days than not, and you'll compile a remarkable life! It begins with habit tracking the RIGHT WAY! ; )
