I'm Dr. Paul Maximus, N.D.
I commit to doing something 52 times in 52 weeks over the coming year.
Previously, it was...
Speed-reading 52 books (typically 3-5 hours each). I fell short at 42 in the fall, but that's more than I would've read otherwise, so not bad!
High-Intensity Interval Training. 2 minutes of all-out effort every week. Despite coronavirus lock-downs, thanks to the stairwell, I managed 52/52 easily.
And this year will be something else.
Why do this, versus the usual New Year's resolution rollercoaster?
The usual way is a rollercoaster.
Where the best intentions go to die.
Where "all" usually becomes "none."
And then a whole year goes by —
— before doing it again.
When you could have been doing
all year towards achieving your goal(s).
I'm NOT saying New Year's resolutions are bad.
(After all, this is one.)
They're a clean slate.
A fresh start.
A reset switch for peak performance.
WHAT I'M SAYING
is that your goals deserve a system.
Guaranteed to work - if you work the system.
And that's why I built...
HOW IT WORKS:
1. Pick a habit.
- HIIT (e.g., 2 mins/week)
- Sunday Ritual (2 hrs; Grocery/Delivery/Food Prep)
- Weightlifting (30 mins/week)
- Call someone you love (20 mins/week)
- Nature (1 hour/week)
- Reading (1 chapter/week)
- Meditate (20 mins/week)
- Prayer/Church (1 hour/week)
- Journalling (1 page/week; Gratitude, Brain Dump, TO DO list...)
- Cardio: running, cycling, swimming, rowing (1 hour/week)
- Fast (Whole Day or Skip B/L/D)
- Martial arts/boxing/wrestling (1 hour/week)
- Any one of your choosing
- Cold plunge (10 mins/week)
Can be anything you want, as long as it's...
Something you’re 9/10 confident in, as if your mother's life depended on it. A year is a long time.
A clear yes/no, as if a drone were keeping track instead of you. No slippery benchmarks.
Too rigid, and you'll hate it. Too vague, you'll lose momentum. Choose a habit that's adaptable to the chaos of real life. Goldilocks.
Or to someone else...
A friend, family member, co-worker... remembering that your odds of success skyrocket when someone you respect is watching your back.
Whatever the case, be sure to drop in for a self-check at the next...
3. Reap the benefits
...of an amazing body, mind, and life— thanks to your new wisely-constructed habit(s).
While winning some sweet high-performance prizes if part of the SPECIAL OPS group.
Give yourself a ✓ or an X each week.
Adding any notes you like, for record-keeping.
The only rule
is that you can't "bank" checkmarks outside of the quarter that we're in. Meaning that once a quarter closes, there's no going back to scoop up missed checkmarks.
So you'd better get more-or-less consistent, if you wanna win.
