Do You Have Good SOI?

If you know me by now you know I like to move fast. 

Sometimes too fast, but once I have an idea in my head I like to move on it. 

I constantly study SOI.

Speed of Implementation. 

I was thinking about it yesterday and it got me thinking...

This, of course, applies to business, you have to be constantly be tweaking and innovating, but doesn't it also apply to everything else in life, especially fitness?

Lets think about it...

We have Person A and Person B.

Lets say that those two people set a goal to lose 20 pounds of weight.

Person A does the research to see all the ways she can lose the weight: She googles different diets, workout programs, does supplement research and then figures out when it's going to work best with her schedule to start her new diet program.

Person B is all about Speed of Implementation and decides that "enough is enough" and that she's going to take imperfect action starting today and makes the time to walk for 30 minutes a day and cuts out a couple sweets, and adds some protein to her diet.

Within 14 days Person B has lost 5 pounds and is excited and has a new sense of commitment to reaching her goal. She soon does the research and figures out which supplements to take, how to eat better, and discovers that she should probably add some weight training to this workout regimen.

Person A on the other hand has more information and knowledge - but she's failed to launch. As a result of that, she lost what little motivation and commitment she had for reaching her goal and slowly gained another 10 pounds over the next six months.

Success, results and the outcome is achieved faster for those who take massive imperfect action now and apply Speed Of Implementation to everything they do.

Notice I said imperfect action. 

It's never going to be the right time. 

It's never going to be 100% right. 

But you constantly have to take imperfect action. 

It's ok that you're still tweaking things and learning more, but at least you're taking action. 

So...I challenge can you apply more SOI into your life?

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,
