Streaks

The streak of my water+pushups+walking morning routine is addicting.

When the streak is alive, it’s like walking downhill. But the moment I miss a day, it’s easy to think that I have to run uphill in order to make up for the lost time.

Sometimes I think I need to do 2x or 3x the usual morning push-ups in order to compensate.

Instead, I need to remember the consistency of the process is more important than the outcome. Doing 0.5x on the day to re-start is better than failing to do 2x.

A key element of making process goals sustainable is forgiveness. I have to forgive myself for not doing a daily goal and move on, as tough as it is to let go.
