On this week's straight-talking smart tech Brand new podcast, The Hack hosts Leon, Paul, Gemma & James are back!
Making resolutions or finding solutions?
Join your regular hosts, Leon and Paul, talking to life coaches Gemma Gibson and James Ash in a brand new episode of The Hack podcast.In their first podcast of the year, they were catching up on where they left off from their 90-day challenge that turned into 183 days and still going, where they see 2022 professionally and personally.
The team talk about what they will be taking into 2022, from what they learned in 2021—learning from mistakes and deciding whether it is best to make a new year's resolution or just to find better solutions?
Gemma says, 'A breakdown happens before a breakthrough.' So this year, she will help the men smash through that wall of inconsistency. What happens is people go hard and give themself challenges but then burn themselves out, so never continue. It's about doing one thing or small things consistently, rather than lots of big things inconsistently.
The 90 Day Challenge
Why 90 days? It takes 90 days of doing something consistently to change a habit.
When it comes to making changes in our lives, we often think that we need to do it all at once. This is especially true when it comes to changing our bad habits. We think that we need to completely overhaul our lives in order to make a change, and this can be very overwhelming. However, as professional life coach Gemma explains, the best way to make a change is to do it slowly and steadily.
The 90-day challenge is a 12-week transformation plan which works because you can make sure you are doing something small each day to create a mindset shift to help you achieve your goals and not set yourself up to fail.
One of the best ways to make a change in your life is to do it slowly and steadily. This is especially true when it comes to changing your bad habits. If you try to overhaul your life all at once, you will likely burn yourself out and never be able to stick to your goals. However, if you take things one step at a time, you will be much more likely to see lasting results.
Trying to find solutions rather than setting resolutions is essential.
It's good to have something in life that you want to achieve, the 90 day transformation is an excellent way of ticking things off your list and making progress. It challenges people with weight loss, fitness, bad habits or even just with business goals and aspirations.
It is long enough for people to see results, but it's not too far away, so they are still driven and are good for people to start with if they don't have many ideas or just starting out. While 90 days isn't too long, it is about giving yourself a starting point, and then what happens is when you've reached 90 days, you'll be thinking, "I'm nearly there," and that will push you on!
This year, Leon and Paul aim to keep consistent, living by the 80/20 rule. 20% fitness and 80% in the kitchen. They explain how 80 per cent of your happiness comes from 20 per cent of your activities and that 80 per cent of your results come from 20 per cent of things you do.
The 80-20 rule principle is to identify an entity's best assets and use them efficiently to create maximum value. (Pareto principle - Wikipedia by Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto)
Eating well is the highest on their list as they feel they have a good balance of fitness. It's about working out what you are most likely to succeed at and what's most important, sometimes this can be something as simple as making more time for yourself!
Leon and Paul have even upped their game by joining a fancy new gym (Nuffield Health). They realise that there is value in paying a little more for something that will be more worthwhile and will pay off by helping them achieve their goals while improving their physical and mental health too!
A New Years Challenge.
Rather than using the phrase 'New Years Resolution', try saying 'New Year Challenge'. It sounds more positive.
Their challenges come in the form of lifestyle change and the feel-good factor; it's more of what they are doing to make them feel good on the inside too.
The boys want to make sure they are putting their best foot forward and working towards living like this all the time, so they may plan out their days and make sure they stay on top of it and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
We encourage everyone to listen to our podcast to hear more about setting challenges throughout the year, adding value to what you do. And as James described, how pivoting and change can help you keep improving yourself and your business and sometimes putting to-do lists to the side and making a not-to-do list will help you focus on what YOU want to achieve.
Don't think about resolutions. Think about goals; how are you going to get there? What is stopping you from doing this now? Why haven't you done it yet?
