Today, a lot of people want to reverse engineer the process from the place they are now to where they want to be.

Certainly, reverse engineering can help with planning and setting goals/benchmarks.

However, realize some things in life come from pure serendipity and without calculation.

Take the Grateful Living Podcast.

Most of my guests in the first year were people in my personal network.

When I was in high school and college, I kept good relations with people just because that’s who I was as a person. That wasn’t calculated. I wasn’t like years from now I’ll start a podcast, and I’ll capitalize on having good relationships with people.

It simply how I lived my life and I happened to benefit from many years later when I ended up starting a podcast.

If you want to be consistent at something, you you can’t always listen to your mind.

For example, let’s say you want to be incorporate exercise more into your weekly schedule.

Chances are your mind will not always want to work out.

Chances are your mind will often say, eh, let’s just stay in bed, relax and watch Netflix. Or who has the energy to travel to the gym right now?

That’s where you have to separate your thoughts from your desires.

If your desire is to be consistent with exercise, you have to train your mind to ignore the lazier thoughts and stay true to your desires.

It’s not always easy, but the more you practice training your mind, the better you will be at staying true to your desires and values.
