Micro Wins or Micro Goals Hack – Robert Kanaat
Setup a goal that is too small to fail – If your goal is to start exercising, set a goal that says, I’m going to walk from here to the next 100 ft. Knock that out. Then the next day do 200 ft. The next day 300 ft., and so on and so forth, each day adding on to the day before. This does two things!
- First, you start out with a win! It lets your mind know that you can do this.
- Second, it gives you sense of accomplishment and confidence that comes with taking a step closer to your goals.
Then the energy to continue and add on because, now, let’s say, the goal is to get to 1 mile run, you’ve already done 20-30 steps to lead up to that goal is mentally, you know you can do it because you’ve already been successful with 20 micro-goals to get you to that final goal!

The key to getting pulled is to go within not search outside.

Ten percent hack – David Goggins – How to stay in momentum and continually progress
You know, when you work out it’s really hard to have all these different workouts and what to do. Workouts can get pretty boring or complex if you try to figure out what you should do to keep growing. So, I have something that will keep it simple for you. It’s called the 10 percent hack.
What the 10 percent hack is every week just go up by 10% from what you did the week before. The good part to this is no matter where you were at last week, you can go up 10%. And the best part is 10% is infinite where you can always improve by going up 10% percent.
You can apply this to the treadmill, regular workouts. And I just used the workouts as an example. But you can apply this in every aspect of your life. You read 15 mins a day. Read 17 mins next week. Read 20 mins the following week and so forth.
One thing you’ll notice is not only are you progressing, but the energy you get from continuously improving and knowing that this week you did better than last week. This is an easy hack you can apply to all aspects of your life. Give it a try knowing no matter where you are this week, you’ll be higher next week!
