When you do a diet, you expect to lose weight.
When you write a blog, you expect people to read it.
When you work out, you expect to get muscles.
When you put in more work, you expect better results.
When you eat healthier, you expect to get healthier.
The only problem is that in most cases, no matter what your expectations, it's probably not going to happen.
At least not as fast as you want it to happen.
So when our expectations aren't met when we expect them to be met, it's really hard to not give up.
So we usually just give up.
So how can we break the expectation cycle?
By trying to remind ourselves of the only thing that really matters...
We do it because it's good for us.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Eating less or healthier is good for your health.
Writing is good for your brain.
Exercising is good for your body.
Putting in more work is good for your skills.
Do it (and keep doing it) because it's good for you.
And not because of the visible, tangible or measurable results.
Because it's very likely that you're going to give up way before any of this is ever going to happen...
